The Paul Klemperer Fellowship in the History of Medicine supports research using the Library's resources for scholarly study of the history of medicine. It is intended specifically for a scholar in residence at the Library.
The Klemperer Fellow is expected to spend at least four weeks in New York City, working in the New York Academy of Medicine Library. Fellows are required to make a public presentation about their project at NYAM, to contribute a post for our blog, and to submit a final report on work done at the Library by the end of the award period.
They invite applications from anyone, regardless of citizenship, academic discipline, or academic status. Preference will be given to (1) those whose research will take advantage of resources that are uniquely available at NYAM, and (2) individuals in the early stages of their careers. Applicants should provide specific information in their proposals about the collection items they plan to use, either by including a bibliography of resources they intend to consult or discussing those items in detail in the context of the application essay.
