The School of Engineering at Brown University seeks applications from exceptionally talented researchers who aspire to careers as academic leaders, creating independent research, and pursuing pathways to discovery and innovation. Eligible applicants will have completed their Ph.D. studies in engineering or engineering-related fields by July 2023. 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.
Applications will be considered from scholars working in the areas of Biomedical Engineering, Chemical and Environmental Engineering, Electrical and Computer Engineering, Fluids and Thermal Sciences, Materials Science, and Solid Mechanics. More details on our areas of research and the faculty involved can be found here.
Successful applicants 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. Prospective Fellows should identify a faculty member (or collaborative group of faculty) in Brown’s School of Engineering to serve as mentor to the applicant’s prospective research project. Please consult our website: http://www.brown.edu/academics/engineering/research for detailed information on faculty research.
