The Zanvyl Krieger Curatorial Fellowship

This Fellowship is designed to provide curatorial and museum training for advanced graduate students (Ph.D. candidates) in the Department of History of Art at Johns Hopkins University. It will support half-time work on the fellow's dissertation and half-time work as a curatorial assistant in the Department of Manuscripts and Rare Books. Candidates must have completed their qualifying exams and have begun dissertation research at the start of the fellowship.

Fellows will have the chance both to conduct research projects, and to play a part in the day to day running of the Department of Manuscripts. The Department of Manuscripts has approximately 900 illuminated medieval manuscripts, 1,300 incunabula, and over 2,000 rare books printed after 1501. The fellow will have the opportunity to conceive, develop and implement an exhibition project based upon the collections, and to work on publications related to the collection and to exhibitions.

The Zanvyl Krieger Curatorial Fellowship is presently filled. When a position opens the requirements and application details will be added below. Many thanks for your interest.
