Senior and Postdoctoral Fellowships at CTR

The Center for Turbulence Research sponsors two fellowship programs:

  • The Senior Fellowship: program sponsors extended visits to the CTR by faculty members and scientists from other universities or government laboratories.
  • The Postdoctoral Fellowship: program provides research opportunities for those who have earned a Ph.D. in an appropriate area in the past three years. They are appointed as Postdoctoral Fellows at Stanford.

Fellows in either of the categories above can and are expected to interact with Stanford faculty in research projects of mutual interest. Applications for Fellowships are reviewed quarterly, and application material should be on file at the CTR by January 1, April 1, July 1, and October 1.
