Quantitative Research Methods Postdoctoral Fellowship, Brown University

The Department of Sociology at Brown University invites applications for a two-year Postdoctoral Fellow to start on July 1, 2024, funded by the Department of Sociology. The initial term of appointment is one year. A subsequent one-year reappointment is expected, subject to good performance. Applications received by Monday, March 11, 2024, will receive first consideration. However, the position will remain open until filled.

The Postdoctoral Fellow will teach one course per academic year in statistics or another quantitative method at the undergraduate or graduate level and will receive close mentoring by a senior faculty member in the design and delivery of the course. No prior teaching experience is necessary. The fellow is expected to engage in an active program of research that leads to publications in scholarly journals and presentations at scientific meetings and conferences. Priority will be given to applicants whose research interests have the potential to lead to collaborations with faculty in the Department of Sociology, but this is not a requirement for the position. The fellow will report directly to the Chair of the Department and the Director of the master’s program in Social Data Analytics.
