The Museum seeks applications from recent PhDs in the fields of urban history, American Studies, architectural history, or related fields who wish to gain hands-on experience in curatorial work and to pursue an independent research project related to the Museum of the City of New York’s collections or programs. The selected Fellow will be in residence at the Museum of the City of New York for a two-year period beginning in September 2017, during which time he or she will be fully integrated into the life of the Museum, including but not limited to collections handling, cataloging, and planning; exhibition development and implementation; educational work related to the Museum’s public and school audiences; and collaborating on budgeting, marketing, and donor relations in the areas related to the Fellow’s research and expertise. The Fellow will also be expected to complete an independent research project related to the Museum’s collections and/or mission, which will culminate in the development and production of an exhibition, publication, or website based on the research conducted during the period of residency.
Compensation starts at $55,176 a year plus benefits, along with additional funds for research support, project development, and relocation. The Fellowship may not be held concurrently with any other fellowship or grant.
