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.
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.
Fixed-term contract: 9-12 months.
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.
