Graduate and Postdoctoral Study

Learn about applying for the Ph.D. program and for post-doctoral positions in Fluids@Brown.


Prospective graduate Ph.D. students should submit applications to the Graduate School, choosing the department or school that best matches their goals and background. The selection process is very competitive. The choice of department will affect issues such as degree requirements and qualifying or preliminary examinations.

Brown does encourage cross-disciplinary research and students will often take courses outside their own department and may collaborate with a second advisor in another department.

Post-doctoral Study

For positions as post-doctoral associates, please contact individual faculty based on the relevant research area. More generally, post-doctoral opportunities exist at ICERM or through the Prager Assistant Professorships offered in the Division of Applied Mathematics.

Students interested in the Sc.M. programs should look at the web sites for the department or school that best matches their goals and background for further information.
