The Cornell Fine Arts Museum at Rollins College seeks a Research Fellow in American Art. This is part-time (20 hours/week), non-residential position funded by a grant from the Henry Luce Foundation to develop, research, digitize and display the American collection. The Research Fellow will work with the Bruce A. Beal Director and members of the curatorial team to conduct in-depth and contextual research. Twin goals are to help re-position the collection for a broader audience, with research (including images, provenance, exhibition history, artist biographies, interpretation and bibliography) made available online; and to integrate the collection with both the teaching mission of the museum and with contemporary efforts to refine and widen the definition of American art.
Eligible candidates will have expertise in American art (ABD required, Ph.D. preferred) with a preference for a research focus in the 19th or 20th century. Experience teaching at the college level or curatorial experience in a university art museum a plus. The fellowship is for a 12-month period starting in January 2020; apart from a few weeks in residence in Winter Park, research can be conducted in any city providing that the fellow has access to major research libraries for American art.
