The Dean’s Postdoctoral Diversity Fellowship is a two-year research fellowship that was established by the Division of Biology and Medicine at Brown University to help grow, support, and retain a diverse scientific workforce. The fellowship program prepares scientists from groups historically underrepresented in the basic, biomedical, and behavioral sciences for careers in academia and other sectors.
Brown University’s Division of Biology and Medicine is proud to support pre and postdoctoral trainees in a wide range of studies through federally-funded training grants.
