Stanford University
Postdoctoral Scholars


Postdocs who wish to consult with entities outside of Stanford may do so on an incidental basis that is in concordance with the University’s policies on conflict of interest and commitment, the obligations by the scholar from his/her funding agencies and at Stanford.  An overview, policies, disclosure and review procedures, and contact information is available on the University’s Managing Conflicts of Interests website at

Foreign scholars on J1 or H1B visas must obtain additional prior approval by Stanford due to the regulations governing off-campus activity for foreign students and scholars.  Guidelines are available on the Bechtel International Center’s website at
