Faculty Postions

We do not currently have open faculty positions. 

Postdoctoral Positions

KIPAC has a number of opportunities for postdoctoral fellowships each year.  Applications are due in November for positions that begin in the summer or fall of the following year. Research interests at KIPAC cover a range of areas in astrophysics and cosmology, including a broad range of experimental, computational, observational, and theoretical topics, and we encourage applications for postdoctoral fellows in all of these areas.

Visiting Scientists

We have an active program of visitors to KIPAC, and encourage visits from scientists who have interests in any of the areas in which we do research. If you would like to visit KIPAC, please contact any of our members. Local and Travel information for visitors is available here.

Graduate Students

KIPAC provides excellent opportunities for graduate students to do cutting edge research in wide range of topics in astrophysics and cosmology. Prospective graduate students should apply to the Physics Department at Stanford. Details about the graduate student admissions process can be found here. Both prospective and current students are encouraged to contact any of the KIPAC faculty members to discuss possible research opportunities. A partial list of these opportunities is available here.

Undergraduate Students

Several KIPAC members have research opportunities for Stanford undergraduate students.  Undergraduates should look at KIPAC Faculty Research Interests, and contact the faculty directly. In addition, we support a number of external students each year through various summer research programs, including: 

  • the SULI program (Science Undergraduate Laboratory Internships, sponsored by the US DOE)
  • the CAMPARE program (for students at California State Colleges and Community Colleges)
  • the SR-EIP program (run by the Leadership Alliance, for students that are underrepresented in science)
