BGC Visiting Fellowship

About: The BGC offers up to ten long and short-term, non-stipendiary, postdoctoral, research fellowships per academic year. Fellows are in residence from 3 to 9 months and are asked to participate fully in the life of the institution—from the “Research Fellows Panel,” which launches each semester’s seminar series, to lunchtime talks, to the possibility of intellectual collaboration with faculty and students. These are all open-ended in area, and are intended for those who have already received funding, or who are not looking for funding, but would benefit from residency in New York City at the BGC. 

Information about applying: Applications for the academic year 2014-2015 are due by April 15, 2014.

Applications should include a statement of interest, curriculum vitae, sample publication (SASE), and a list of three references, and should be sent by April 15, 2014 to Research Fellowship Search Committee, attn: Dean Elena Pinto Simon, Bard Graduate Center: Decorative Arts, Design History, Material Culture, 38 W. 86th Street, New York, NY 10024. No electronic applications. Please note that we welcome international applicants, however the BGC will not be responsible for obtaining the necessary visa paperwork.
