Postdoctoral Research Fellow/Postdoctoral Research Associate
Institution or company
PSTC Brown University
The Population Studies and Training Center (PSTC) at Brown University invites applications for multiple postdoctoral positions to start on or around July 1, 2024. The initial term of appointment is one year, but reappointment for a second year is expected, subject to satisfactory performance. We welcome applications from candidates with a Ph.D. in a relevant social science discipline (e.g., anthropology, economics, sociology, demography, public policy, or related) at the time of appointment. We also welcome applicants with financial support from other sources, including the NIH F32 Individual Postdoctoral Fellowship.
The PSTC builds scientific understanding of local, national, and global population challenges and their implications for health and well-being. PSTC focuses on demographic research in six main areas: children, families, and health; social inequalities; population, development, and environment; migration and urbanization; social foundations of health disparities; and reproductive health and HIV/AIDS. Potential applicants are encouraged to consult the PSTC website to learn more about research activities, intra-institutional links, and faculty affiliate interests.
Postdoctoral Research Fellows and Associates are expected to spend their time working on independent research, and they may also collaborate with one or more mentors among our faculty affiliates. In addition, Postdoctoral Research Fellows and Postdoctoral Research Associates are expected to be active members of the PSTC community (e.g., participate in relevant workshops, regularly attend weekly PSTC Colloquia, present their work to the PSTC community, present research at the Population Association of America (PAA) annual meetings, and submit one or more articles for publication). They are also encouraged to prepare grant applications. In some cases, they may teach a course. Applicants should visit our PSTC faculty page and identify one or two potential faculty mentors; however, applicants are not required to contact potential mentors prior to submitting an application.
