In 2018-19, the Pembroke Center is awarding one-year residential postdoctoral research associate positions to scholars from any field whose research relates to the theme of “What Are Human Rights? Imperial Origins, Curatorial Practices and Non-Imperial Ground”. Fellows are required to participate weekly in the Pembroke Seminar, teach one undergraduate course, and pursue individual research.
Candidates are selected on the basis of their scholarly potential and the relevance of their work to the research theme. Recipients must have a PhD and may not hold a tenured position. Fellowships are awarded to postdoctoral scholars who have received their degrees from institutions other than Brown within the last five (5) years. Brown University is an EEO/AA employer. The Center strongly encourages underrepresented minority and international scholars to apply.
The term of appointment is July 1, 2018-June 30, 2019. The stipend is $50,000 plus $1,500 for research expenses. Postdoctoral Research Associates are eligible to participate in the Brown University health and dental benefit plan. For full consideration, applications must be submitted by 11:59 pm (EST) on Thursday, December 7, 2017. Selections will be announced in March.
Complete applications must include:
- One page document including title and 250-word abstract of proposed research project
- Project statement of five typed pages (double-spaced)
- Brief representative bibliography for research proposal
- Curriculum vitae
- Course syllabus with a course description and schedule of assigned readings*
- Three confidential recommendation letters
*The course should be designed as an undergraduate seminar, meeting once or twice a week. The topic need not intersect with the seminar theme. It should be related to your own discipline and training. It would be listed in Gender and Sexuality Studies and should involve in some way questions of gender and/or sexuality, though those need not be the primary focus.
