The Christensen Fellowship -Chinese Painting

University of Oxford – Ashmolean Museum

The Ashmolean Museum re-opened to the public almost one year ago, following a hugely exciting redevelopment. The Christensen Fellowship is an endowed postdoctoral fellowship associated with the Khoan and Michael Sullivan Gallery of Chinese painting. The Christensen Fellow will be expected to undertake new research in the field of Chinese painting, with a view to publication.

A confident communicator with good presentation skills, you will have a sound knowledge of the Chinese language, hold a doctoral degree in Chinese art or be on the point of completing a doctoral thesis. Experience of curatorial work will be an advantage.

This post is offered on a two year contract.
