Research and Collaborations

The William R. Rhodes Center for International Economics and Finance seeks to encourage interdisciplinary collaboration among Brown faculty and external partners on issues of and related to international economics and finance. We offer three sources of funding for faculty to build capacity on the issues of International Economics and Finance at Brown.

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 a grant application, 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. For details contact the Director.

Postdoctoral Research Opportunities - The William R. Rhodes Center supports one post-doctoral researcher each year and is keen to partner with other units at Brown to expand that offering. Inquiries regarding the Rhodes Post-Doctoral Fellowship should be addressed to the center director. Decisions are made by the Rhodes Center Board of Advisors.

Research Workshop Grants - The William R. Rhodes Center invites Brown University faculty and researchers to submit proposals for one-day workshops (or their online 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. For details contact the director.
