Robert Y. C. Ho Research Fellowship in Buddhism and Conservation
Courtauld Institute of Art, University of London
The Courtauld, through the generosity of Robert Y. C. Ho, is offering a fellowship to promote understanding of the philosophical issues at the intersection of Buddhism, art, conservation and archaeology. This fellowship will give the Fellow the opportunity to undertake a research project on Guru Padmasambhava and his influence in Bhutan and elsewhere, to explore archaeological conservation and management structures and issues in Asia, and to act as Co-ordinator of the Buddhist Art Forum (sponsored by the Robert H. N. Ho Family Foundation) at The Courtauld in spring 2012.
The Fellow will also be awarded the title of Associate Scholar in the Courtauld Research Forum. Applicants should be fluent in English and Dzongka, have a good knowledge of other Himalayan languages, and have a doctorate in archaeology either completed or nearing completion by October 2010.
Applicants are asked to submit (1) a covering letter explaining the candidate’s specific interest in the Fellowship; (2) a completed application form; (3) two letters of recommendation, including one from the candidate’s supervisor – these can be sent separately; and (4) an equal opportunities monitoring form.
