2020/21 Fellowship Competition: Royal Museums Greenwich (deadline 6 October)
Royal Museums Greenwich (which comprises the National Maritime Museum, the Royal Observatory, the Queen’s House and Cutty Sark) has a well-established programme supporting high-quality research providing new perspectives on our collections. Fellowships are stipendiary, and can run for a minimum of 3 and a maximum of 12 months. Applications should engage with our thematic priorities which include:
• The migration of people, objects and ideas
• British identities in imperial, post-colonial and global contexts
• Human perspectives on the modern maritime world
• Understandings of nation, community and identity in museum practice
• Developments in citizen heritage, public engagement and heritage science
• Female patronage, art, architecture and performance in the Stuart court
• Naval/military uniform and concerns regarding status, display and identity
Engagement with our collections is essential, and we welcome applications from within a wide range of disciplines and cross-disciplinary approaches. We also seek to encourage creative and practice-based projects in areas such as the visual arts, performance and literature.
The fellowship programme mainly supports study at a post-doctoral or equivalent level. We encourage applications from scholars of all nationalities and career stages who have been awarded a PhD, or who expect this to occur before the start of the fellowship. Queries regarding eligibility should be sent to: email@example.com
