Share this opportunity with your friends

The Andrew W. Mellon Fellowship welcomes outstanding PhD candidates working on the art and cultural history of the Low Countries whose principal concern is object-based research.

Rijksmuseum welcomes international, independent research proposals which open new perspectives on the Rijksmuseum’s collection, its history and activities. The purpose of the Fellowship Programme is to encourage and support a scholarly investigation and to contribute to academic discourses while strengthening bonds between the museum and universities. The programme enables highly talented candidates to base part of their research at the Rijksmuseum and offers access to the museum’s expertise, collections, library and laboratories. Furthermore, the programme facilitates opportunities for Fellows to engage in workshops and excursions to encourage the exchange of knowledge – both amongst themselves and the broader museum audience.

Eligibility:

  1. The Andrew W. Mellon Fellowship supports individuals engaged in postgraduate university studies leading to a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) or Doctor of Science (DSc) degree, whose research is compatible with the Fellowship position. The candidate has to have a university-affiliated supervisor.
  2. Fellowships are open to candidates of all nationalities and with varied specialisms. They may include researchers specialising in the fields of art history, cultural history or related studies.
  3. Candidates should have proven research capabilities, academic credentials and excellent command of the English language – both written and spoken. Proficiency in a second language (ideally Dutch or German) is preferred but not required.

Funding:

Fellowship stipends are awarded to help support a Fellow’s study and research efforts during the tenure of their appointment. The stipend of €33,000 (subject to taxes and deductions) is for a period of twelve months commencing 1 September 2019, the start of the academic year.

The Fellowship will allow for limited travel for research in art collections and archives elsewhere in Europe to a maximum value of €5,000 annually. The Rijksmuseum will cover visa fees for the Fellow, but not for dependents.
