Bard Graduate Center/AMNH Fellowship in Museum Anthropology

Bard Graduate Centre and the American Museum of Natural History invite applications for a two-year postdoctoral fellowship jointly appointed at Bard Graduate Centre and in the Anthropology Division at the Richard Gilder Graduate School of the American Museum of Natural History. The fellow’s project focuses on a specific area of material culture: Southeast Asian textiles, including textiles from Myanmar, Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Singapore, Brunei, East Timor, Philippines. 
Past areas of specialization have included the indigenous cultures of the Pacific Northwest, Oceania, South American textiles, and Australian Aboriginal cultures. The project makes use of the AMNH collection. A PhD in Anthropology or a related field is required.

The fellow teaches one graduate course each year and mounts an innovative small exhibition, ideally drawing on the collections of the AMNH, in Bard Graduate Centre’s Focus Gallery. A major purpose of the Bard Graduate Centre-AMNH Fellowship is to promote mutual scholarly interest and interaction among our fellows, faculty, and students, and the AMNH academic community.

To apply, please submit the following materials via email as a single PDF to fellowships@bgc.bard.edu: cover letter, curriculum vitae, sample publication, and a list of three references. 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 $35,000 per year. Housing is available, as is a small research/travel fund while the Fellow is in residence. The deadline to submit the application is November 1, 2015 and the position commences in the fall of 2016.
