Pembroke Center Postdoctoral Research Associateships, 2018-19

In 2018–19, the Pembroke Center is awarding one-year residential postdoctoral research associateships to scholars from any field whose research relates to the theme of “What Are (Human) Rights? Imperial Origins, Curatorial Practices and Non-Imperial Ground.” Research Associates are required to participate in a weekly research seminar and teach one undergraduate course.

Candidates are selected on the basis of their scholarly potential and the relevance of their work to the research theme. Recipients must complete their PhD prior to the appointment start date, and may not hold a tenured position. Associateships 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, 2018-June 30, 2019. The stipend is $50,000 plus $1,500 for research expenses. Postdoctoral Research Associates are eligible to participate in the Brown University health and dental benefit plan.
