YCBA Postdoctoral Research Associateship
Applications due by 4 March 2013

The Yale Center for British Art (YCBA) is offering a Postdoctoral Research Associateship (PRA) in the
Department of Paintings and Sculpture. The position is intended for a recent recipient of the PhD (degree
granted within the last three years) in a field related to British art. The PhD must be in hand by the time
the position begins. The PRA may be held for up to three years. It is expected that the post-holder will
pursue long-term professional employment during the period of hire. The PRA will receive an annual salary
of $45,000, plus standard Yale benefits. Funding to allow the PRA to attend one professional conference
annually, and modest travel funds for undertaking work on behalf of the department as well as for personal
research, as determined by the departmental head, will also be provided.

The PRA will report directly to the Senior Curator of Paintings and Sculpture and the Curator of Paintings and
Sculpture. Primary duties will consist of research associated with the collection of paintings and sculpture
and the exhibition program of the Center, including contributing to the ongoing scholarly cataloguing of the
collection, assisting with major international loan exhibitions overseen by the Department, assisting with
the reinstallation of the permanent collection of paintings and sculpture scheduled for 2015, and supporting
the research activities of the Senior Curator and the Curator. The PRA will be given one day a week to pursue
research in his/her own areas of specialization, and is expected to give talks at scholarly conferences, publish,
and engage with the wider art-historical community. Applicants should consult the job description for full
details of the requirements of the position.
