Job Description:
The Rijksmuseum Fellowship Programme
Amsterdam

The Rijksmuseum welcomes international, independent research proposals which open new perspectives on the museum’s collection, its history and activities. The purpose of the Rijksmuseum Fellowship Programme is to encourage and support scholarly investigation, and to contribute to academic discourses while strengthening bonds between the museum and universities. The programme enables highly talented candidates to base part of their research at the Rijksmuseum, and offers access to the museum’s expertise, collections, library and laboratories. Furthermore, it facilitates opportunities for Fellows to engage in workshops and excursions to encourage exchange of knowledge - both amongst themselves and the broader museum audience.
Required Skills:
The Rijksmuseum Fellowship Programme is open to candidates of all nationalities and with varied specialisms. They may include art historians, curators, conservators, historians and scientists. Candidates should have proven research capabilities, academic credentials and excellent written and spoken knowledge of two languages (English and preferably Dutch or German). Fellowships will be awarded for a duration of 9-12 months, starting in the academic year 2021-2022. Please review the Rijksmuseum website for detailed information on each individual Fellowship position.

Funding
Fellowship stipends are awarded to help support a Fellow’s study and research efforts during the tenure of their appointment. The stipend amount varies by funding source and Fellowship period. Visit the Rijksmuseum website for further information.
 
Application Instructions:
The Rijksmuseum belongs to everyone. That is why we are committed to actively promoting equality, diversity and inclusion. People with diverse backgrounds and experiences bring different perspectives to our collection and activities. This leads to new insights and enhances the museum’s innovative strength. We therefore warmly invite you to apply, regardless of your social or cultural background, sexual preference, gender, age or disability.

Please review the eligibility, funding and application requirements by visiting the Rijksmuseum website. For the 2020-2021 academic year, candidates can apply for:

• Johan Huizinga Fellowship for historical research - Apply here
• Migelien Gerritzen Fellowship for conservation and scientific research - Apply here
• Dr. Anton C.R. Dreesmann Fellowship for art historical research - Apply here

The closing date for all applications is 17 January 2021, at 6:00 p.m. (Amsterdam time/CET). No applications will be accepted after this deadline. All applications must be submitted online and in English. Applications or related materials delivered via email, postal mail, or in person will not be accepted.

Selection will be made by an international committee in February 2021. The committee consists of eminent scholars in the relevant fields of study from European universities and institutions, and members of the curatorial and conservation staff of the Rijksmuseum. Applicants will be notified by 15 March 2020. All Fellowships will start in September 2021.
