Caroline Villers Research Fellowship


The Courtauld, together with the Trustees of the Caroline Villers Research Fellowship, have established a Research Fellowship in memory of Caroline Villers.  The purpose of the Fellowship is to promote research in the interdisciplinary field of Technical Art History: the application of technical, scientific and/or historical methods, together with close observation, to the study of the physical nature of the work of art in relation to issues of making, change, conservation and/or display.

The Fellowship is advertised annually, in the spring, and interviews take place in late June/ early July. Research proposals for the Fellowship are welcomed from researchers and practitioners from diverse disciplines relating to the study and conservation of works of art. The Fellowship is also open to applicants in permanent employment wishing to take leave of absence to work on a project. The maximum period of tenure is 9 months, but requests for shorter projects are also considered. The Fellow is based at The Courtauld Institute of Art although collaborations with other institutions are encouraged.

More information on Caroline Villers and the fellowship is available here.

Fellowship vacancies and application forms are advertised on The Courtauld's Vacancies webpage
