How You Will Contribute
The Constance E. Clayton Curatorial Fellowship provides upcoming or recent M.A. graduates in Art History or related fields the opportunity to gain professional experience in preparation for a career as a curator. The Fellowship offers a foundational learning and development opportunity for an individual from a traditionally underrepresented group in the museum field. Working under the direction of the head of a curatorial department in which this individual will be placed, the Fellow will receive a comprehensive introduction to curatorial practice in a large art museum. The Fellow will participate in the Museum’s Fellows’ cohort program which is intended to provide a broad introduction to a professional career working in an art museum. Additionally, the Fellow will be mentored by a committee of members of the Museum’s senior staff who will serve as a resource for his or her professional development and will make every effort to provide opportunities to connect with other mentors and leaders in the Fellow’s field of interest.
The term of appointment for this Fellowship will be for two years beginning in September 2019 and ending in August 2021. The successful candidate will receive a competitive annual salary and the standard benefits offerings for the Museum. The deadline to submit applications is February 15, 2019.
