Andrew W Mellon Foundation/Research Forum Postdoctoral Fellowship (Mellon MA)

The Courtauld Institute of Art

The Courtauld Institute of Art Research Forum, with the support of the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, is offering a fellowship to an early career researcher in the field of Early Modern art. This fellowship will give the Fellow the opportunity to pursue a research project while gaining teaching experience in a research environment and participating in the launch of an interdisciplinary M.A. course. In addition to undertaking research, the Fellow is expected to teach one B.A. course and to act as an affiliate to the Research Forum/Mellon Foundation M.A. course being offered for the first time in 2012-2013 (Visualising Knowledge in the Early Modern Netherlands) by Professor Joanna Woodall in collaboration with the Mellon Visiting Professor, Erik Jorink (a leading authority on scientific culture in the Early Modern period).

Applicants must be at an early stage of their career, not currently holding or having held a permanent university post and having received a doctorate within the three years prior to the start date of the post (and no later than December 2011).

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. For further details please visit the Courtauld website or email or telephone 020 7848 1881. Information about the Research Forum/Mellon M.A. courses can be found in the Research Forum Groups and Projects section of the Research Forum website,

Closing date: 7 October 2011

Final selection of the Fellow will be made in early November 2011
