Faculty Opportunities

Craig M. Cogut Visiting Professor of Latin American and Caribbean Studies

The Craig M. Cogut Visiting Professorship brings leading scholars in Latin American and Caribbean Studies to Brown University to teach and conduct research. Visiting Professors are based at the Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies (CLACS) at the Watson Institute for International and Public Affairs. Cogut Professors teach one undergraduate course on Latin America per semester, advise undergraduate and graduate student theses, and give presentations on campus through CLACS or affiliated units. The Craig M. Cogut Visiting Professorship provides a salary, an optional medical insurance package, a modest research fund, and administrative assistance. Appointments are possible for one or two semesters. The deadline is October 15, 2016.

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.

India Initiative Faculty Research or Language Training

Applications will be considered from Brown regular faculty from any field to support research on modern India or accelerated language training that is relevant to India. Proposals will be evaluated based on the quality of the proposed research or training and the potential for the activity to lead to a long-term successful program of research on modern India. Special consideration will be given to applications from junior faculty, especially those for whom India is a new area of research.
