Postdoc Opportunity

Andrew W. Mellon Postdoctoral Curatorial Fellowship 2011–2013

The Metropolitan Museum of Art offers a residential postdoctoral fellowship for individuals who have received their doctoral degrees in art history or archaeology within the past five years and by the September 1, 2011 start date. This fellowship provides curatorial training and opportunities for scholarly research at the Metropolitan Museum. The fellow will have a two-year term, with the possibility of renewal for a third.

Fellows will be fully integrated into one the Museum's curatorial departments and, while exposed to the full range of curatorial work, will devote their time to a specific Metropolitan Museum project developed by the hosting department. Individuals will work directly with one or more senior curators, who will serve as supervisors and mentors throughout the term of the fellowship. Each fellow will also have the opportunity to undertake an independent project in consultation with his or her supervising curator.

The deadline for the curatorial fellowship is November 5, 2010.
