The appointment is for two years. Applicants must have their doctoral degree in hand no later than 30 days prior to the appointment start date, and the start date must be no more than three years after the awarding of their degree. Postdoctoral scholars will receive a stipend and benefits, set and adjusted in accordance with Stanford University rules, and must be in residence for four academic quarters, beginning August 1, 2014.

The Clayman Institute is committed to the principles of equal opportunity and fair and open competition.
