Postdoctoral Research Associate - Brown University

The Office of the President at Brown University is seeking a postdoctoral research associate for a one‐year fellowship focused on social mobility and education. We seek fellows with interests in developing and applying their skills in rigorous empirical education policy analysis and publicly-accessible writing. Applicants should have a substantive interest in higher education and/or income inequality. The fellows will receive mentorship and training from the faculty sponsors, primarily through an active research apprenticeship and collaboration. In addition, they will be part of the broader Annenberg Institute community including faculty and students at Brown University, visiting faculty and students, and other postdoctoral fellows.

Candidates should have a PhD in Education, Economics, Sociology, Statistics, Psychology, Public Policy, or a related field by the beginning of the postdoctoral fellowship (July 1, 2019). Candidates should have strong substantive expertise in K-20 education policy and strong quantitative research skills. Review of applications will begin immediately. Applications received by May 1, 2019 will be considered, but the search will remain open until filled.
