Curatorial Research Fellowship

The Bibliotheca Hertziana – Max Planck Institute for Art History in Rome offers Curatorial Research Fellowships with a duration of three months to museum curators for projects on Italian art history from Late Antiquity to the present day in the context of their respective museum activities (e.g. curatorial research for the preparation of an exhibition or the editing of an inventory catalogue). A correlation to the current research priorities of the Bibliotheca Hertziana is welcome.

Curatorial Research Fellows receive a monthly expense allowance of approximately 1.750 € and are granted full access to all research resources of the Bibliotheca Hertziana. They are expected to reside in Rome for the duration of the fellowship and to actively take part in the institute's scientific life.

Museum-employed researchers who do not reside in Rome or the surrounding area are eligible to apply. The call for applications is issued once a year in June for the following year and is published on the institute's website in the section Opportunities.
