Applications are only accepted through Brown University’s online hiring system and must include a current CV, a Cover Letter, 6-10 examples of original object photography (including both standard/documentary images AND catalog quality images), and the names of three referees. Complete applications must be filed before June 30, 2019 to be considered.
