Andrew W. Mellon Curatorial Fellowship
This post-doctoral fellowship is funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation for an outstanding junior scholar who wishes to pursue a curatorial career in the art museum field. Comprising a two to three year period, the fellowship will support scholarly research related to the collections of the Walters Art Museum and provide curatorial training. Widely regarded as one of the finest museums in the United States, the Walters possesses an encyclopedic collection of eastern and western art. Applications are welcome in the areas of Manuscripts, Medieval, Renaissance and Baroque and Islamic art.
The Mellon Fellow will be fully integrated into the Curatorial Division and have the opportunity to work closely with an individual curator as well as the conservation and education divisions. The fellow will have access to the museum collections, research libraries both within the museum and in the region and will enjoy all the professional privileges of the museum's staff.
The fellow will divide his/her time between specific research projects (two fifths) and more general curatorial work (three fifths). In consultation with the supervising curator, the fellow will develop a concrete project intended to complement personal research interests. General curatorial activities may include research on the collection, work on the presentation of the collection, and/or its publication in print or online, and/or participation in special exhibition projects. The fellow will be expected to participate in the museum’s education and public programs and deliver public lectures and gallery talks. The fellow will receive an annual stipend plus benefits and a travel allowance.
