Research Forum/Mellon Foundation M.A. Postdoctoral Fellowship for period 1 September 2008 to 31 August 2009
£22,000 per annum plus £300 travel award upon application
This fellowship offers an early career researcher in the field of Modern or Contemporary art 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. These experiences will enhance the appointee’s curriculum vitae and advance their prospects of obtaining other research awards and posts within the academic community.
Applicants are expected to 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 2007).
Applicants are asked to submit (1) a covering letter explaining the candidate’s specific interest in the Fellowship; (2) a completed application form including a statement of up to 1,000 words describing the proposed research project and its expected outcome; (3) a curriculum vitae; (4) a writing sample (a published work or a dissertation chapter); (5) two letters of recommendation, including one from the candidate’s supervisor – these can be sent separately; and (6) an equal opportunities monitoring form.
