Postdoctoral Fellowship

The Courtauld Institute of Art Andrew W Mellon Foundation/Research Forum Postdoctoral Fellowship (Mellon MA)

1 September 2011 to 31 August 201, £25,013 per annum

Closing date: 7 October 2010 ( Final selection of the Fellow will be made in early December 2010).

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 Modern or Contemporary art. This fellowship will give the Fellow the opportunity to pursue a research project while gaining teaching experience in a research environment and working in close collaboration with senior scholars to deliver interdisciplinary M.A. courses. 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 by Professor Mignon Nixon and Visiting Professor Juliet Mitchell in 2011-2012 (“Post-War” and After: The Psychoanalysis of War and American Art).

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 three years of taking up the award (and no later than December 2010).

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.
