Yale Center for British Art, Exhibitions and Publications & Paintings and Sculpture
Postdoctoral Research Associateships
|Location:||Connecticut, United States|
The Yale Center for British Art (YCBA) is offering two Postdoctoral Research Associateships (PRAs), one each in the following departments: 1) Exhibitions and Publications, and 2) Paintings and Sculpture. These PRAs are for recent recipients of the PhD (degree granted within the last three years) in a field related to British art. The PhD must be in hand by the time the position begins. The PRA may be held for up to three years. It is expected that the post-holder will be pursuing long-term professional employment during the period of hire. The PRA will receive an annual salary of $45,000, plus standard Yale benefits. Funding to allow the PRA to attend one professional conference annually, and modest travel funds for undertaking work on behalf of the department as well as for personal research, as determined by the departmental head, will also be provided.
A preference for either position may be stated in the application but is not required. The deadline for receipt of applications is August 6, 2012. Interviews are expected to take place in early fall 2012. Please see detailed job descriptions and submit an application at http://britishart.yale.edu/about-us/opportunities. Applicants should complete the online application form and upload a cover letter, CV, and writing sample. Three letters of recommendation should be forwarded under separate cover to firstname.lastname@example.org.
