Postdoctoral Fellows

Fellowship and Visiting Scholar Programs

The Center for Turbulence Research sponsors three fellowship programs:

  • The Senior Fellowship: program sponsors extended visits to the CTR by faculty members and scientists from other universities or government laboratories. Senior Fellowship applicants may apply for support for accompanying Ph.D. students.
  • The Postdoctoral Fellowship: 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, or October 1.

  • Predoctoral Students can apply for graduate studies in the Department of Mechanical Engineering or other appropriate department at Stanford and indicate their interest on the electronic department application forms.

    • Curriculum vitae

    • Three confidential letters of reference addressed to the Director Professor Parviz Moin.  Author should send letter directly to moinatstanforddotedu
