Call for applications: CNA Fellowship Program 2023-2024

The Center for Netherlandish Art (CNA) at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston invites applications for the CNA Fellowship Program 2023-2024.

CNA Fellowship Program

The CNA Fellowship Program supports and nurtures future generations of scholars and specialists in Netherlandish Art. Through mentorship and access to the MFA’s rich collections, resources, and research facilities, fellows jointly further their professional development and are part of an active learning community. The CNA seeks to build a global cohort of fellows and foster meaningful connections to enhance the field of Netherlandish Art as a whole.

The call for 2023–24 academic year fellowship applications is now open. Candidates may apply for a fellowship through the MFA’s job portal. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis until 15 January 2023. Candidates are encouraged to apply at their earliest convenience.

CNA fellowships provide opportunities for talented individuals at different stages of their careers—from recent MA graduates to emerging scholars at the postdoctoral level—to conduct independent research connected to the MFA’s collection of Netherlandish art. This may include preparation for submission of a PhD proposal, dissertation research and writing, and preparing a publication, among other research activities. To encourage creative thinking and new scholarship, the program is open to individuals in all professional and academic fields. Fellows are drawn from a highly competitive international application pool and receive a workspace in the CNA Library. Compensation includes a salary and travel allowance, as well as a generous benefits package.

Fellows are fully incorporated into the work of the MFA and may consult on projects related to their research. They also share their research through the CNA’s and MFA’s public programs and online platforms to benefit a range of audiences. This fall, the inaugural fellows started the program for the academic year of 2022-23.
