From the National Gallery of Art in Washington:

Andrew W. Mellon Postdoctoral Curatorial Fellowship
National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C., 2017–2020

Applications due by 30 June 2017

The National Gallery of Art is pleased to announce a postdoctoral curatorial fellowship for 2017–2020 funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. This is a two-year fellowship with the possibility of renewal for a third year. The fellowship provides curatorial training and supports scholarly research related to the collection of the National Gallery of Art. The fellow is fully integrated into a specific curatorial department with duties, privileges, and status equivalent to those of an assistant curator. Time is divided between specific projects and general curatorial work within the department, including research on the collection and new acquisitions, work on the presentation of the collection, participation in aspects of special exhibition projects, and opportunities to give public lectures. The fellow will plan and complete a project in consultation with the supervising curator.

Consideration is given to candidates working in fields represented by the Gallery’s permanent collection of European and American art. Placements are available in the departments of old master prints, sculpture and decorative arts, American paintings, modern and contemporary art, and photographs. The doctoral degree in art history (or the equivalent in countries outside the United States) must be or have been officially conferred within five years (preferably three years) of the start date of the fellowship. Applicants from all backgrounds are encouraged to apply. This is an international program.
