Brown University invites applications for its 2024-26 Presidential Postdoctoral Fellowship Program, a two-year program designed to support the development of early career scholars from diverse backgrounds who show promise as innovative scholars. The fellows’ research interests must align with an existing academic program or institute at Brown University.
Successful candidates will teach one course per year as part of the appointment and will participate in activities related to the Presidential Postdoctoral Fellows Program. This postdoctoral fellowship is not renewable beyond year two.
Brown encourages all interested applicants to apply, regardless of race, national origin or gender.
Scholars with a Ph.D. in the physical sciences, engineering, life sciences, humanities, or social sciences will be considered. Candidates will be considered if their dissertation is completed by July 1, 2024. We are interested in scholars who demonstrate a commitment to promoting diversity and inclusion.
Please submit a cover letter, CV, and three confidential letters of recommendation.
The cover letter should include a description of your research and teaching interests, your work and interest in diversity and inclusion. You should also identify the academic department(s) and/or institute(s) in which you would like to work. Priority review will be given to applicants who apply by October 15, 2023.
