Candidates should submit: (1) a cover letter describing research completed and planned, (2) a curriculum vitae, and (3) the names of five references who would be contacted at the appropriate time by the search committee. To receive full consideration applications must be received by October 15, 2016. Applications will be accepted until the position is filled or the search is closed. Brown is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer, and women and minorities are enthusiastically encouraged to apply. Send materials to:
