Dear colleagues,

I write in the final sweet days before the holidays are upon us to share news of two postdoctoral fellowships opening at The Phillips Collection in summer 2018. Please share these opportunities with any colleagues and/or students who might be interested! I am happy to answer any questions you may have.

University of Maryland-Phillips Collection Fellowships

The Phillips Collection and the University of Maryland invite applications for two postdoctoral fellowships for the academic year 2018-19. These fellowships will allow the recipients to work with The Phillips's exceptional collection of modern and contemporary art and the University of Maryland's leadership programs in art-historical scholarship, interdisciplinary experimentation, and virtual technologies.

One fellowship will support research and teaching on topics in American, European, or non-western art of all media from 1780 to the present, while the other will support the advancement and exploration of design approaches and digital technologies to enhance and/or intensify the museum visitor's experience.

During the academic year 2018-19, both fellows are expected to be in residence in Washington, DC, at the University of Maryland Center for Art and Knowledge at The Phillips Collection.

Each fellow is expected to teach one undergraduate or graduate course at the Center or at the University of Maryland, to present at least one public lecture, and to participate in other programs and discussions with scholars, critics, museum staff, and students at the museum and the university.

The appointments will carry the appropriate departmental affiliations with the University of Maryland and with The Phillips Collection. Fellows will receive a stipend of $ 52,000 plus standard UMD benefits, as well as various university and museum privileges, including access to libraries, equipment, support staff, curators, students and faculty.

The fellowship is open to untenured scholars who have received their PhDs within the past five years. Applicants must have successfully defended the dissertation and received the doctoral degree by June, 2018.

A complete application consists of the following:

* A curriculum vitae
* 1-2 written examples of scholarship (e.g., publications, manuscripts)
* A cover letter that outlines the applicant's interest in and fit with the University of Maryland-Phillips Collection Fellowship, describes the applicant's research goals and potential course topics, and lists potential faculty mentors at the University of Maryland and/or The Phillips Collection.
* A 1500-word proposal of a research project for the fellowship year.  As examples, this project might include transforming the applicant's dissertation into a series of journal articles, a book, or an equivalent peer-reviewed (print or digital) publication, or an initial study that might catalyze the next stages of his/her program of research. The proposal should indicate how the applicant's project and future program of research will be enhanced by collaborations and connections at the University of Maryland Center for Art and Knowledge at The Phillips Collection.
* Name, title, affiliation, and contact information for three references.  Applicants should arrange to have references send their letters directly to the same e-mail address by the application deadline.

To apply, send a single PDF document to: fellowships at phillipscollection.org<mailto:fellowships at phillipscollection.org>

Deadline for submissions is February 15, 2018.

Many thanks and all the best,
