Allen Whitehill Clowes Curatorial Fellowship
Indianapolis Museum of Art, 2012-2013

Applications due by 30 March 2012

The Indianapolis Museum of Art is pleased to announce a nine-month curatorial fellowship. The fellowship supports scholarly research related to the Clowes Collection at the IMA and provides curatorial training in the field of European painting and sculpture. The Clowes Fellow is fully integrated into the curatorial division of the Museum and has duties comparable to those of an assistant curator, ranging from collection research and management to exhibition development and the preparation of interpretive materials and programs.

To be eligible for the fellowship, the applicant must be enrolled in a graduate course of study leading to an advanced degree in the history of art or a related discipline, or be a recent degree recipient (within the last two years). Applicants must demonstrate scholarly excellence and promise, as well as a strong interest in the museum profession. U.S. citizenship is not required.

The Clowes Fellow will receive a stipend of $18,000 and an educational travel allowance of $2,000. Housing is provided in a scholar’s residence on the grounds of the museum. The nine-month fellowship period will begin September 4, 2012. The appointment is renewable.

Applications should include a cover letter explaining your interest in the fellowship, a curriculum vitae, a writing sample, a concise statement describing your area of research and its relationship to the Clowes Collection, and three letters of recommendation (academic and professional). Applications must be received by March 30, 2012.
