Brown Engineering is recruiting exceptionally talented researchers who have received their Ph.D. degree in engineering, or an engineering-related discipline, or who expect to do so by July 2023, and who aspire to careers as academic leaders, creating independent research and pursuing pathways to innovation and discovery. In furtherance of the University and School’s commitment to enhancing academic excellence by cultivating a more diverse, equitable and inclusive community in which the very best ideas can flourish, we strongly encourage interested scholars from historically underrepresented groups to apply.
Given the School’s collaborative approach to advancing knowledge across disciplinary boundaries, the strongest applications will highlight research drawing on more than one of the following areas of research focus, including Biomedical Engineering, Chemical and Environmental Engineering, Electrical and Computer Engineering, Fluids and Thermal Sciences, Materials Science and Engineering, and Solid Mechanics.
Successful candidates will be selected based on an evaluation of their promise as future academic leaders. They will be expected to carry out independent and collaborative research with engineering faculty members; teach one course per year in the School; help connect innovations in the research environment to concepts taught in courses; and ensure they develop strong teaching skills prior to launching their faculty careers.
The Hibbitt Engineering Fellows will receive an annual salary plus benefits and an additional research and travel stipend. Anticipated start date for these full-time positions is in July 2023. Initial appointment is for one year, with expected renewal for a second year given satisfactory progress.
Candidates must submit an application, CV, statement of research accomplishments, prospective research project summary, diversity statement and three letters of reference. Prospective Fellows should also identify a Brown Engineering faculty member or a collaborating group of Engineering faculty to serve as mentor of the proposed research project. Please consult our research website: http://www.brown.edu/academics/engineering/research for detailed information.
Applicants are encouraged to submit their materials by March 1, 2023 online through https://apply.interfolio.com/117481. The positions will remain open until filled.
These Fellowships are provided by a generous gift from Susan and David Hibbitt. For more information: http://brown.edu/go/hibbit-fellow
