Joining the Faculty

Scholars who join Brown's faculty become part of an academic community that celebrates deep intellectual curiosity, creativity and individuality.

At Brown, faculty, staff and students make an impact through engaged lives of teaching and learning within a diverse and supportive community. The University's mission to advance knowledge and discovery benefits from the presence of an intellectually stimulating mix of voices and ideas. We welcome scholars who want to join a teaching and learning community grounded in a respect for the views of others.

The diverse richness of perspectives — coupled with the innovative, dynamic spirit of the University's distinctive Open Curriculum for undergraduates and student-centered education for graduate and professional studies — infuse both academic and social life at Brown. Members of the Brown community collaborate on insightful scholarship, pioneering research, innovative startups, artistic performance and initiatives that benefit society. They travel abroad and partner with community organizations to find solutions to pressing local, national and international issues. Faculty are active members of a community of educators and learners.
