Faculty Opportunities

Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies (CLACS) Interdisciplinary Faculty-Student Reading/Writing Groups

CLACS invites applications from groups of affiliated graduate students and faculty to form interdisciplinary country- or region-focused reading/writing groups in the academic year 2016-17. The purpose is to enhance learning about the country or region from a number of disciplinary perspectives.

China Initiative Faculty Research Awards

China Initiative Faculty Research Awards support research by Brown faculty members whose focus of study is China. The awards support archival, library, and on-site field research in China or Taiwan; in exceptional cases, the awards might be used to support archival or library research in other East Asian countries with collections relevant to the topic.

Rhodes Center Institutional Collaboration Grants

The William R. Rhodes Center aims to support faculty who wish to build capacity at Brown in areas related to international economics and finance through collaborations with external institutions, in the United States and abroad. Whether as a partner in grant applications, as a research partner on existing research, or along other similar lines, we stand ready to support Brown faculty who seek to set up and nurture such relationships.

Rhodes Center Research Workshop Grants

The William R. Rhodes Center invites Brown University faculty and researchers to submit proposals for one day workshops (or their on-line multi-day equivalent) aimed at expanding the interdisciplinary understanding of international economics and finance and the impacts thereof. Proposals are welcomed from all parts of the university, including the social sciences and humanities, engineering, the sciences, public health, and medicine. The William R. Rhodes Center is particularly interested in proposals that span multiple academic disciplines.
