The PSTC fosters postdoctoral training as well as predoctoral. With several postdoctoral fellow positions supported by external funding secured by PSTC and through joint appointments with other academic units, PSTC provides a stimulating environment and excellent infrastructure for junior scholars studying population studies. The opportunities include:
- NICHD Postdoctoral Fellow [supported by our National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) Training Grant from the National Institute of Health (NIH)]
- Hewlett Postdoctoral Visiting Scholars from Africa (supported by our Hewlett Foundation grant)
- Joint postdoctoral appointments with other campus units
Associated postdoctoral fellows have access to all the services that faculty and students do, which includes high performance computing and pre and post award administration. PSTC also supports the Postdoc Writing Group that meets monthly to review each other’s grant proposals and publications.
PSTC-affiliated postdocs focus on developing their reseach, publication and grant portfolio and may teach a course (depending on the position's funding sources) and have the opportunity to participate in Brown courses. Following their appointments, PSTC postdocs are hired into excellent academic institutions, including University of Massachusetts, Boston, Oregon State University and University of Toronto. See the Alumni section for more information on our recent placements.
Brown University offers an array of resources to postdocs, including:
- Postdoc Advisory Panel
- Brown Graduate School’s Resources for Postdocs
- Sheridan Center for Teaching and Learning
- Sheridan Professional Development Certificate Programs
- Postdocs in Providence Facebook Page
