Center for Studies in Demography and Ecology

Postdoctoral Fellow in Native American and Indigenous Studies

Posted: 4/16/2018 (Employment)

Brown University invites applications for a two-year Postdoctoral Fellowship in Native American and Indigenous Studies as part of the President’s Diversity Postdoctoral Fellowship Program. The fellowship is affiliated with the Native American and Indigenous Studies Initiative (NAISB), the Center for the Study of Race and Ethnicity in America, and the department most closely related to the candidate’s academic interests.

The candidate will teach one course per year, e.g., an introductory course on Native American and Indigenous Studies or a course in the candidate’s specialty. Additionally, the candidate will organize a panel or lecture series each year on a key topic in contemporary Native American and Indigenous Studies. We recommend applicants contact a possible mentor or mentors from NAISB-affiliated faculty (seeĀ https://www.brown.edu/academics/native-american-and-indigenous-studies/faculty). The purpose of a mentor is not necessarily to have perfect disciplinary or thematic overlap (indeed we encourage cross-discipline and cross-theme pairings), but to be a source of support, professional guidance, and provide an intellectual home.
