BGC Research Fellowship

About: Long and short-term fellowships for scholars (postdoctoral) and museum professionals for both collections-based research at the BGC or elsewhere in New York, and for writing and reading projects that would utilize the BGC’s dynamic research environment. The BGC invites scholars from university, museum, and independent backgrounds to apply. Candidates must already have a PhD or equivalent professional experience. 

Both long- and short-term fellowships are available (for example, 6, 4, 2 or 1 month), with a one-month minimum. The timing of dates will be negotiated with individual awardees. Fellows would work in a Research Center alongside twelve other postdoctoral fellows.  

Applications for the academic year 2015-2016 will be due November 1, 2014. 

Please also see our Frequently Asked Questions page. 

The stipend rate is $3,500 per month and housing costs are assumed by the BGC.
