Andrew W Mellon Foundation/Research Forum Postdoctoral Fellow (Activities Coordinator) (Courtauld Students only)
Fixed term post from 1 January to 31 December 2014

£28,398 per annum


The Courtauld Institute of Art Research Forum, with the support of the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, is offering a fellowship to a scholar who has recently been awarded a PhD in Art History from The Courtauld Institute of Art, to pursue a research project and to gain experience in working in a research environment, developing, organising and promoting the activities of the Research Forum, particularly within the postgraduate community.  The candidate will draw on his/her knowledge of the on-going research projects taking place within The Courtauld’s Research Forum and knowledge of research priorities of Courtauld staff and students.  This is a full-time post divided between research and administration; it does not involve any teaching.  Where teaching commitments are in place either at The Courtauld or elsewhere, these will have to be renegotiated.  This will enhance the appointee’s curriculum vitae and advance their prospects of obtaining other research awards and posts within the academic community.  Applicants must have received a Courtauld doctorate within the two-year period prior to the start date of the Fellowship, and the doctorate, including viva, must have been completed (passed or passed with minor corrections required) by 14 December 2013.

Applicants are asked to submit to recruitment@courtauld.ac.uk (1) a covering letter explaining the candidate’s specific interest in the Fellowship; (2) a completed application form; (3) a letter of recommendation from the candidate’s supervisor - this can be sent separately; and (4) an equal opportunities monitoring form.

For further details and application forms see The Courtauld's Vacancies webpage.


Closing date for applications: 3 October 2013

The applications received by the closing date of 3 October 2013 will be reviewed by the Head of Research and a Faculty Committee with decisions reported to the Research Committee in early November 2013.
