Tate Research Centre: 2017 Asia Visiting Fellowship Scheme


Tate welcomes applications for the 2017 Tate Research Centre: Asia Visiting Fellowship Scheme.

This Visiting Fellowship Scheme provides scholars and curators the opportunity to realise a short-term research project in the field of modern and contemporary Asian art. Individuals engaged in the programme will be able to access information relating to works in the Tate Collection and draw on the resources in Tate’s Library and Archive. This is an ideal opportunity for a scholar or curator who wishes to undertake research at Tate and is keen to share their work on an international platform.

The terms of the individual fellowships will be agreed after consultation with the successful applicants. However, all fellows are expected to:

  • Produce a final report summarising the research project.

  • Contribute research to one of Tate’s online publication platforms.

  • Convene a seminar or lecture at Tate or at a partner organisation.

The duration of the fellowship is negotiable (maximum three months). The starting dates are flexible, however the post must be completed by December 2017. Fellowships are non-stipendiary. The posts are visiting opportunities; the successful applicants will not hold Tate staff positions. Each fellow will be reimbursed for their travel, accommodation and per diem expenses, the terms of which will be agreed with individuals on the basis of their particular projects and circumstances.

To apply please submit the following in PDF format (no larger than 8 MB) by email to trc.asia@tate.org.uk by 17.00 GMT 17 February 2017:

  • A single-page project proposal

  • A writing sample (preferably published)

Interviews will take place on the week commencing 27 February.

The Visiting Fellowship programme at Tate Research Centre: Asia provides researchers the opportunity to develop their independent research whilst drawing on the wealth of resources available at Tate. In addition to furthering their own research, Visiting Fellows also make a valuable contribution to the centre’s own research programme by publishing their findings, conducting seminars and convening events.
