The Morgan Drawing Institute awards one nine-month Postdoctoral Research Fellowship to a scholar in the first decade of their career following the completion of the Ph.D. or equivalent advanced degree. The Postdoctoral Research Fellowship supports an independent research project, ideally working toward a clearly defined publication relating to some aspect of the history, theory, collecting, function, or interpretation of drawings.
A stipend and travel funding is provided. Fellows are responsible for finding their own housing, but will receive a one-time payment of $1500 that may be used for relocation expenses.
The Postdoctoral Research Fellow is expected to spend their fellowship period in residence at the Morgan Library & Museum. The majority of the Fellow’s time will be spent on the research project for which the fellowship is awarded, but the Fellow is expected to participate fully in the intellectual life of the Morgan and to attend Drawing Institute programs during their tenure. The Fellow may be asked to assist in the planning and implementation of Drawing Institute programs.
The Fellow will present a progress report on their research at the conclusion of the fellowship.
Typically, a winter deadline for a start date in September. Successful applicants will be notified around March.
