Hibbitt Postdoc Fellowship in Mechanics of Solids at Brown
Brown Engineering is recruiting exceptionally talented researchers who have received their Ph.D. degree in engineering, or an engineering-related discipline, after July 2015, or who expect to do so by July 2017, and who aspire to create independent research and pursue careers as leaders of innovation.
While we will consider applications in all areas of our engineering programs, preference will be given for the 17-18 academic year in the fields of fluids and thermal sciences, and mechanics of solids.
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 engineering faculty members. They will also be expected to teach one course per year in the School, to help connect innovations in the research environment to concepts taught in courses, and to ensure they develop strong teaching skills prior to launching their faculty 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 2017. 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, 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 of the proposed research project. Please consult our research website: http://www.brown.edu/academics/engineering/research for detailed information.
Applicants are encouraged to submit their materials by April 30, 2017 online through https://apply.interfolio.com/37867. The positions will remain open until filled.
These Fellowships are provided by a generous gift from Susan and David Hibbitt.
