Beinecke Postdoctoral Program

The Center for Advanced Study in the Visual Arts offers one Beinecke Postdoctoral Fellowship biennially for two consecutive academic years. The Beinecke Postdoctoral Fellow will reside in Washington. During the first year the fellow will carry out research and writing for publication. The fellow will also design and direct an intensive weeklong seminar for the seven predoctoral fellows at the Center, focusing on a topic related to the applicant’s field of interest and with a special emphasis on methodological issues. In the second academic year, while continuing research and writing in residence, the Beinecke Postdoctoral Fellow will be expected to teach one course by arrangement at a neighboring university.

Field of Study

The Beinecke Postdoctoral Fellowship supports research in the history, theory, and criticism of the visual arts of any period or culture. The Center encourages applications in underrepresented fields.


The Beinecke Postdoctoral Fellow will be in residence at the Center for Advanced Study in the Visual Arts for two years and will participate fully in the activities of the Center throughout the fellowship period. The fellow will be provided with housing in an apartment near the Gallery, subject to availability, and with a shared study. The fellow has access to the notable resources represented by the art collections, the library, and the image collections of the National Gallery of Art, as well as to the Library of Congress and other specialized research libraries and collections in the Washington area.

Qualifications and Selection

Applicants must have received the PhD degree between November 1, 2015 and November 1, 2020. The fellowship is awarded without regard to age or nationality of applicants. Applications are reviewed by an external selection committee composed of scholars in the history of art. Individuals currently affiliated with the National Gallery of Art are not eligible for the Beinecke Postdoctoral Fellowship program.
