Inclusive training for outstanding postdoctoral scholars focused on academic careers
Li Ka Shing Center for Learning and Knowledge

Launched in 2021, the Stanford School of Medicine’s Propel Postdoctoral Scholars Program seeks to attract and train talented postdocs who would bring diversity (broadly defined) to the future professoriate in the biological, biomedical, and population-based sciences. We provide funding support, including salary, as well as community-building activities, academic career preparation courses, workshops, and seminars to foster career development and leadership skills, as well as opportunities to enhance key skills in grant writing, science communication, networking, and mentoring.
