This two-year fellowship is devoted to a specific Met project (available on the Met website, see link below) and provides curatorial training and an opportunity for the fellow to engage with a community of scholars from around the world. The fellow is fully integrated into one of the Museum’s curatorial departments. The individual works directly with one or more curators, who serve as supervisors and mentors throughout the term of the fellowship.
The fellow also has the opportunity to undertake an independent project in consultation with their supervising curator. Through weekly gatherings and discussions, the fellow takes part in research-sharing workshops that expand dialogue and foster a community of intellectual engagement. See the website for more information on the projects.
Candidates receive a salary and travel stipend.
The candidate must hold a doctoral degree (received in the past five years) in art history or archaeology with a specialization related to one of the projects.
Fellowships are 24 months in length. Applications close every other year in November. Candidates will be notified in February.
