Brown University and the School of Engineering seek to recruit and retain a diverse workforce to maintain the excellence of the University, and to offer our students richly varied disciplines, perspectives, viewpoints, and ways of knowing and learning.
Brown Engineering is recruiting exceptionally talented researchers who have received their Ph.D. degree (or expect to do so by July 2022) in Fluids Mechanics, or related disciplines, and who aspire to pursue careers in advanced research and education.
Successful candidates will be selected based on an evaluation of their promise as future academic leaders. They will be expected to carry out independent and collaborative research with the engineering faculty members. They will also be expected to teach one course per year in the School to help connect innovations in their research to concepts taught in the classroom, and to ensure they develop strong teaching skills prior to launching their academic careers.
The Hibbitt Engineering Fellows will receive an annual salary plus benefits and an additional research and travel stipend. Anticipated start date for these full-time positions is in July 2022. Initial appointment is for one year, with expected renewal for second year given satisfactory progress.
Candidates must submit an application, CV, statement of research accomplishments, prospective research project summary, diversity statement and three letters of reference.
Prospective Fellows should also identify a Brown Engineering faculty member or a collaborating group of Engineering faculty to serve as mentor(s) of the proposed research project. Please consult our research website: http://www.brown.edu/academics/engineering/research for more details on the faculty research.
Applicants are encouraged to submit their materials by March 1, 2022 online through https://apply.interfolio.com/96692. The position will remain open until filled.
These Fellowships are provided by a generous gift from Susan and David Hibbitt. For more information: https://engineering.brown.edu/get-involved/employment/hibbitt-fellows
