Postdoctoral Search

The Taubman Center for Public Policy and American Institutions at Brown University seeks to fill two postdoctoral positions in Public Policy. Appointment will be for one year, starting July 1, 2014, with the possibility of renewal. Each of the Fellows will teach half-time (one seminar per semester) and conduct research half-time.

Qualifications: We are looking for Fellows with expertise in one of the Center’s program areas: urban policy, education policy, law and public policy, health policy, and social welfare policy. Candidates whose research combines any of these policy areas with survey research methods will be given special consideration. Candidates for the position should have Ph.D. in hand by July 2014 and should show promise of significant scholarship and teaching ability.

Application instructions: Applicants should submit a letter of application, a curriculum vitae, a copy of a publication or paper, three letters of recommendation, and a sample syllabus.
