The Courtauld Institute of Art in London

Terra Foundation Postdoctoral Fellowship at the Centre for American Art, The Courtauld Institute of Art, University of London

The postgraduate fellowship hosted by the Centre for American Art at the Courtauld Institute of Art is designed to facilitate original, rigorous, and exciting research that investigates art from the United States or its role in an international context from the colonial period up to 1980. It offers a postdoctoral scholar the opportunity to pursue his or her own work while in residence for six months and to actively contribute to the academic programming of the Centre for American Art. The Terra Foundation fellow will be able to consult local libraries and archives, including the Courtauld library, and benefit from access to the events of the Sackler Research Forum.

This fellowship is administered by the Courtauld Institute of Art.

The 2020–21 Terra Foundation Postdoctoral Fellow at the Centre for American Art is Tom Day (PhD, University of Edinburgh).
