The Metropolitan Museum of Art annually welcomes a vibrant group of graduate students, museum professionals, and senior scholars from around the world to undertake research and independent study as Metropolitan Museum fellows. The diversity of fellows’ projects reflects the historic and geographic diversity of the Museum’s collection. The community of fellows becomes immersed in the life of the Museum and takes part in a robust program of colloquia, round-table seminars, research-sharing workshops, behind-the-scenes tours, conversations with Museum staff, and tours of the collection and exhibitions. As they discuss research questions, look closely at objects, and share the experience of living in New York City, fellows form long-lasting professional relationships.
The Slifka Foundation Interdisciplinary Fellowship
One of the currently available fellowships, the Slifka Foundation Interdisciplinary Fellowship, is awarded to a completed master’s- or PhD-level candidate for training in an interdisciplinary approach, joining art historical research with technical investigation of the Museum’s Northern Renaissance paintings. The recipient of this fellowship will conduct research with the curator for the collection catalogue of early Netherlandish paintings.
Deadline: 6 November 2015
