Rijksmuseum Fellowship Programme 2019-2020
The Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam welcomes international, independent research proposals which open new perspectives on the museum’s collection, its history and activities.
The Rijksmuseum Fellowship Programme is open to candidates of all nationalities and with varied specialisms. They may include art historians, curators, conservators, historians and scientists. 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. Fellowships will be awarded for a duration ranging from 3-12 months, starting in the academic year 2019-2020.
Please review the Rijksmuseum website for detailed information on each individual Fellowship position.
The purpose of the Rijkmuseum Fellowship Programme is to encourage and support 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 exchange of knowledge – both amongst themselves and the broader museum audience.
The closing date for all applications is 20 January 2019, at 6:00 p.m. (Amsterdam time/CET).
