The National Gallery of Art is pleased to announce two postdoctoral curatorial fellowships for 2008-2011, funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. These three-year fellowships provide curatorial training and support scholarly research related to the collections of the National Gallery of Art. Fellows are fully integrated into a specific curatorial department with duties, privileges, and status equivalent to an assistant curator. Fellows divide their time between specific projects and general curatorial work within the department, which includes research on the collection and new acquisitions, work on the presentation of the collection, participation in aspects of special exhibition projects, and opportunities to give public lectures. Fellows will plan and complete a project in consultation with their supervising curator.

Consideration is given to candidates working in fields represented by the Gallery’s permanent collections. The doctoral degree in art history (or the equivalent in countries outside the United States) must have been or will be officially conferred between January 1, 2006 and June 15, 2008. Applicants from all backgrounds are encouraged to apply. This is an international program.

Andrew W. Mellon Curatorial Fellows work full-time and may begin their term in either June or September 2008, based on mutual agreement. The stipend is approximately $45,000 USD per year, adjusted annually. Fellows are eligible to receive public transit subsidies as well as medical and term life insurance through the federal government. Complete application packets must be received by January 31, 2008.
