Application Deadline: Mellon Postdoctoral Fellowship, 2024-26: Disability Studies

February 1

The Department of American Studies and the Program in Science, Technology, and
Society (STS) at Brown University invite applications for a two-year Mellon Postdoctoral Fellowship in Disability Studies.

This position is to be held jointly at the Cogut Institute for the Humanities and the
Department of American Studies, effective July 1, 2024, with an affiliation with STS. We
seek a scholar whose work addresses the meanings, histories, experiences, or
representations of disability, broadly defined. We welcome applicants who use
methodologies from across the humanities and qualitative social sciences in their
research and teaching. The applicant’s scholarship should engage with the United
States, but we encourage applications from scholars who engage in comparative or
transnational analyses.

The successful candidate will teach one course per semester (which will be listed by
American Studies or STS and cross-listed with the Cogut Institute).
The postdoctoral fellow will be expected to participate in the Cogut institute’s weekly
Tuesday fellows’ seminar. They will also be welcome to take part in other activities at
the institute, in the STS program, the American Studies Department, and elsewhere on
the Brown campus, including the Disability Studies Working Group.
