Welcome to the Office of University Postdoctoral Affairs at Brown! The Office is focused on enhancing the experience of Brown’s postdoctoral scholars, working in partnership with the following divisions that appoint, support, and train the postdoctoral community:


Arts & Sciences

Postdocs in the arts and sciences work in fields as diverse as Public Humanities and Engineering, but are all part of one vibrant community.


Brown employs over forty postdocs in its six basic biology departments.


As one of the most historic engineering programs in the country, the Brown School of Engineering has a high-impact research community with over forty postdocs in its six research programs. We are committed to deep and ambitious research with collaborations across traditional disciplinary boundaries.

Public Health

Founded in 2013, the School of Public Health has a growing community of around twenty postdocs in its four academic departments.
