Job description

Democratic institutions are central to societies that are peaceful, just, and prosperous. However, in the United States and many other places in the world, the norms, practices, and institutions of democratic life are slowly being eroded. Importantly, this does not happen in one domain of life, but often across various domains—social, political, and economic. We are seeking applications from the disciplines of philosophy, politics, and economics whose work examines important aspects of democratic institutions. We invite candidates with analytical, theoretical, normative, or empirical methods to apply. Research topics can focus specifically on politics and democracy or on broader questions such as culture, economic history, race and gender, and economic analysis of political and legal institutions. Candidates’ research should cross at least two of the three constituent fields of philosophy, politics, and economics.  

The Center for Philosophy, Politics, and Economics at Brown University (PPE Center) will be appointing up to three Postdoctoral Fellows. Post-doctorates must have received their PhD within the past three years. Postdoctoral fellows will pursue their own research, participate in PPE Center workshop, and teach one seminar course per year. In addition to a CV, three confidential letters of reference, a writing sample, and teaching statement, applications should include a cover letter describing how their research fits within the mission of the PPE Center. We seek candidates who contribute to diversity and/or have demonstrated support for diversity and inclusion through their teaching and research. Candidates are asked to include in their teaching dossier a statement of how their teaching is designed with an eye to contributing to an inclusive educational environment. A similar contribution from one’s research can also be cited if relevant. Appointments are for one year, renewable for a second year based on satisfactory performance and the availability of funds. Salary is competitive.
