How You Will Contribute
The Philadelphia Museum of Art is looking to fill the Barra American Art Fellowship, a one year position to begin at the start of the 2018-2019 Academic Year with a possibility of renewal for the 2019-2020 Academic Year. This position is generously endowed by The Barra Foundation in honor of Robert L. McNeil, Jr., with additional support provided by the Robert L. McNeil Endowments for American Art at the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
The Barra Fellow will work full-time in the Department of American Art, assisting four days a week in ongoing department research and exhibition projects, with one day reserved for personal research, writing, or travel. Candidates should propose a thesis or area of research interest that can take advantage of the resources of the Philadelphia Museum of Art and other area libraries and institutions. Priority will be given to those with projects relating to the Museum’s collection or exhibition program, and to students from the Philadelphia region. Fellows will have library privileges at the PMA and the University of Pennsylvania. At the conclusion of the term, the Barra Fellow will be expected to give a lecture and submit a paper reflecting work done during the residency.
The fellowship stipend is $40,000 per twelve month period with additional research and travel funds and four weeks of discretionary time off per year.
