Job description

We welcome international research proposals which open new perspectives on the Rijksmuseum’s collection, its history and activities. The purpose of the programme is to enable applicants to base part of their research at the Rijksmuseum and thus to strengthen the bonds between the museum and universities. The focus of research should relate to the Rijksmuseum’s collection and activities, and may encompass any of its varied holdings, including paintings, sculpture, decorative arts, prints, drawings, photography and historical artefacts. The programme offers students and academic scholars access to the museum’s collections, library, conservation laboratories and curatorial expertise. Furthermore, the museum facilitates opportunities for Fellows to engage in workshops and excursions to encourage the exchange of knowledge - both amongst themselves and the broader museum audience.
