New Fellowship Program at the Bard Graduate Center

The Bard Graduate Center invites applications for a new funded research fellowship program. Scholars from university, museum and independent backgrounds are invited to apply. Candidates must already have a PhD or equivalent professional experience. The fellowship is open to both collections-based research at the BGC or elsewhere in New York, and to writing or reading projects in which being part of the BGC’s dynamic research environment is intellectually valuable.  The stipend rate is $3,500 per month and housing costs are assumed by the BGC. Both long- and short-term fellowships are available (for example, 6, 4, 2 or 1 month), with a one-month minimum. The timing of dates will be negotiated with individual awardees. Fellows would work in a Research Center alongside 12 other postdoctoral fellows.

The BGC is a graduate research institute devoted to study of the decorative arts, design history, and material culture, drawing on methodologies and approaches from art history, economic and cultural history, history of technology, philosophy, anthropology, and archaeology. It offers MA and PhD degrees, possesses a specialized library of 60,000 volumes exclusive of serials, publishes West 86th: A Journal of Decorative Arts, Design History and Material Culture, Cultural Histories of the Material World (University of Michigan Press) and the catalogues which accompany the four exhibitions it presents every year in its Gallery space. Over 50 research seminars, lectures and symposia are scheduled annually and are livestreamed around the world on the BGC’s YouTube channel.  Applicants should send a detailed description of their project, explain why the BGC is an appropriate research affiliation, and indicate the preferred length of such a fellowship. Two letters of reference should be sent directly by the referees.

All materials should be sent by April 15, 2014 to Research Fellowship Applications, attn: Elena Pinto Simon, Bard Graduate Center, 38 W. 86th Street, New York, NY 10024. The fellowship year begins on or after  September 1, 2014. Fellowships are awarded without regard to race, color, gender, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, age, or disability.
