Spanish Gallery Collection Research Fellowships
The Zurbarán Centre for Spanish and Latin American Art at Durham University (UK) seeks to recruit two research fellows for a tenure beginning October 2022 and ending June 2023.
The Zurbarán Centre for Spanish and Latin American Art at Durham University is seeking to recruit two research fellows to undertake research into the collection of the Spanish Gallery in Bishop Auckland, starting on 1 October 2022 and ending 30 June 2023. The two fellowships are affiliated with the Zurbarán Centre and Durham University’s Residential Research Library Scheme.
The appointed fellows will be part of Durham University’s research community and have privileged access to the Spanish Gallery. Generously funded by the Centro de Estudios Europa Hispánica (CEEH), each fellowship includes a monthly stipend of £2,100. An allowance for research-related travel will be available on request. The appointed fellows will be expected to produce museum-standard catalogue entries and a substantial piece of academic research by the end of the fellowship period, suitable for publication by the CEEH.
The fellows will be resident at Durham for the first part of the fellowship and must be willing to travel to undertake archival research in the UK and/or in Spain. The fellows will take part in work-in-progress sessions and have the opportunity to present their research as part of the Zurbarán Centre’s lecture program.
Applicants will hold a PhD or MPhil in History of Art or a related discipline and have specialist knowledge of early modern Spanish art and culture. Applications from experienced academic researchers and/or museum curators are particularly welcome.
