In 2016-17, the Pembroke Center is awarding one-year residential postdoctoral fellowships to scholars from any field whose research relates to the theme of "Anti-War! Theaters of War/Politics of Refusal". Fellows are required to participate weekly in the Pembroke Seminar, teach one undergraduate course, and pursue individual research.

Candidates are selected on the basis of their scholarly potential and the relevance of their work to the research theme. Recipients must have a PhD and may not hold a tenured position. Fellowships are awarded to postdoctoral scholars who have received their degrees from institutions other than Brown within the last five (5) years. Brown University is an EEO/AA employer. The Center strongly encourages underrepresented minority and international scholars to apply.

The term of appointment is July 1, 2016-June 30, 2017. The stipend is $50,000, plus a supplement for health insurance and $1,500 for research expenses.  For full consideration, applications must be submitted by 11:59 pm (EST) on Thursday, December 3, 2015. Selections will be announced in March.
