KHI-RCAC Joint Fellowship

The Kunsthistorisches Institut in Florenz - Max-Planck-Institut (KHI) and the Research Center for Anatolian Civilizations of Koç University (RCAC, in Istanbul) offer a joint, one-year fellowship. The successful candidate will spend the fall semester at one institution, and the spring semester at the other. She/he will carry out projects that represent advanced research on any aspect of the study of visual culture from antiquity to early 20th century.
The fellowship will be awarded, at one of two levels: one junior fellowship for advanced doctoral candidates who are writing their PhD dissertation, or one senior fellowship for candidates who have received a PhD within a decade of the year of application (PhD certificates not earlier than January 1, 2003). Candidates must be conversant in English. Fellows may not take on any other obligations such as teaching positions, even part-time ones, during any part of their Fellowship term.
The fellowship period will be one academic year, which will be spent as one term at KHI and one term at RCAC (fall semester: September 15 to January 31; spring semester: February 01 to June 15). The successful candidates can express a preference for spending the fall semester in Florence or Istanbul. During both semesters, it must be possible for fellows to carry out most of their research with the resources available in the city where they are resident.
