The Center for Advanced Study in the Visual Arts, National Gallery of Art, is now accepting applications for the A. W. Mellon Postdoctoral Fellowship, a two year appointment located in Washington, DC. Applications are due October 15, 2023. During both years, the fellow carries out research and writing for publication. In the first year of the fellowship, the fellow will design and direct an intensive weeklong seminar for the seven predoctoral fellows in residence at the Center, focusing on a topic related to the applicant’s field of interest and with a special emphasis on methodological issues. In the second academic year, while continuing research and writing in residence, the fellow is expected to teach one course by arrangement at a neighboring university.
The A. W. Mellon Postdoctoral Fellowship supports research in the history, theory, and criticism of the visual arts of any period or culture. The Center encourages applications in historically marginalized fields. For more information, please click here.
