Bard Graduate Center/AMNH Fellowship in Museum Anthropology

Bard Graduate Center invites applications for a two-year (2018–20) postdoctoral fellowship jointly appointed at Bard Graduate Center and in the Anthropology Division and the Richard Gilder Graduate School of the American Museum of Natural History. The Fellow’s project should focus on Native Textiles of the North American Southwest and should make use of the AMNH collection. PhD in Anthropology or related fields required.

BGC is a graduate research institute committed to studying the cultural history of the material world, drawing on methodologies and approaches from art and design history, economic and cultural history, history of technology, philosophy, anthropology, and archaeology.

The Fellow will teach one graduate course each year and will mount an innovative small exhibition, ideally drawing on the collections of the AMNH, in the BGC Focus Gallery. A major purpose of the BGC-AMNH Fellowship is to promote mutual scholarly interest and interaction among fellows, BGC faculty and students, and the AMNH academic community. Candidates will be judged primarily on their research abilities, experience, and on the merits and scope of the proposed research. The Fellow will have office space and be expected to participate fully in the intellectual life of both institutions. Salary is $40,000 per year. Housing is available, as is a small research/travel fund while the Fellow is in residence. Appointment to begin July 1, 2018.
