Andrew W. Mellon Foundation Post-Doctoral Curatorial Fellowship

American Philosophical Society

The American Philosophical Society (APS), the nation's first learned society, invites applications for its two-year Andrew W. Mellon Post-Doctoral Curatorial Fellowship.The APS seeks applications from recent PhDs in the fields of history of science, 18th- or 19th-century American history, art history, museology, or any other related humanities disciplines. The fellowship, based in the APS Museum, will provide hands-on experience in curatorial work and the opportunity to pursue an independent research project, preferably one related to the collections or programs of the Society's library and museum. The Mellon Fellow will conduct research in the APS collections in preparation for the APS Museum's exhibitions exploring the intersections of history, art, and science. The exhibitions take place in Philosophical Hall, located within Independence National Historical Park. As the public face of the APS, the museum researches and interprets the APS's extensive collections for the regional, national, and international visitors who converge on Philadelphia's historic district.
