Funding from the Terra Foundation for American Art has enabled The Courtauld Institute of Art’s Research Forum to implement the 2013-2015 fellowship for the teaching and study of historical American art (pre-1980).  This award enables a recent postdoctoral scholar to teach at The Courtauld Institute of Art and to undertake a major research project intended for publication.  The Fellow teaches one course in the first year and two courses in the second year on selected American art topics.  The Fellow participates in The Courtauld’s research seminars and in the research culture generally.

This fellowship is part of an initiative of the Terra Foundation that aims to develop international interest, knowledge, and scholarship in the field of historical American art, and it has been awarded in conjunction with similar fellowships at the Freie Universität in Berlin and the Institut national d’histoire de l’art in Paris.

Applicants are at an early stage of their career, not holding, or having held a permanent university post and having received a doctorate within the three-year period prior to taking up the award.  The scheme offers an early career researcher in the field of historical American art the possibility of gaining experience of research and teaching in a notable centre of art historical studies, that will enhance his or her curriculum vitae, improve his or her prospects of obtaining permanent teaching posts, and further the knowledge of American art.

Candidates for the postdoctoral fellowships who have taken up a Terra Foundation for American Art postdoctoral teaching fellowship at the John F. Kennedy Institute of American Studies, the Institut national d'histoire de l'art, or The Courtauld Institute of Art within the last four years are not considered.

The closing date for the current 2013-15 fellowship was 15 January 2013

The Courtauld Institute of Art promotes equal opportunities.
