Apply for 2014/15 Pembroke Center Postdoctoral Fellowship
In 2014-15, the Pembroke Center is awarding one-year residential postdoctoral fellowships to scholars from any field whose research relates to the theme of “Aesthetics and the Question of Beauty”. 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 received their PhD degrees from institutions other than Brown University. 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, 2014-June 30, 2015. The stipend is $50,000, plus a supplement for health insurance. The deadline for receipt of applications is December 5, 2013. Selections will be announced in March.
Questions should be directed to Donna_Goodnow@brown.edu or phone 401-863-2643.
Beginning in August, 2013, please submit application materials through Interfolio.
Complete applications must include:
- Completed application form

- Project statement of five typed pages with representative bibliography

It would be listed in Gender and Sexuality Studies and should involve in some way questions of gender and/or sexuality, though those need not be the primary focus.
