Terra Foundation Postdoctoral Teaching Fellowship in Europe

One of the ways we realize our global mission is by expanding opportunities for the study of historical American art in Europe. From 2009 to 2015, the Terra Foundation offered postdoctoral teaching fellowships at the Courtauld Institute of Art, in London; and Institut National d’Histoire de l’Art (INHA), in Paris. In 2016 the foundation introduces a new opportunity:

Terra Foundation Postdoctoral Teaching Fellowship at Humboldt Universität Berlin 2016–2020

This postdoctoral fellowship at the Institute of Art and Visual History, Humboldt Universität Berlin, will allow two postdoctoral fellows to teach and engage in research on American art history over a two-year period each (2016–18 and 2018–20). The courses will also be open to students from the Freie Universität Berlin.

This teaching program at the prestigious art history department of Humboldt Universität will complement the Terra Visiting Professorship Program at the John F. Kennedy Institute, Freie Universität Berlin, thus creating a suite of rich opportunities for the interdisciplinary study of American art in Germany’s largest city.
