New Postdoctoral Fellowship at the Toledo Museum of Art

Aug 14, 2011

The Toledo Museum of Art in Ohio received a half million dollar grant to create a new postdoctoral fellowship program that will combine curatorial work with interdisciplinary museum operations. Fellows will be paid an annual salary over the course of their two-year fellowship to complete an independent project related to a personal or scholarly interest in museum work.

“We will provide mentorship, work experience and broad, cross-departmental learning opportunities that should be of great value to those early in their careers,” says Art Director Brian Kennedy. “That blend will give the Fellows broad-based knowledge and experience that is both required and crucial for the next generation of museum leaders.”

The first Fellow will begin in January 2012 and a new Fellow will be selected each year. The Museum is staggering the two-year fellowships to ensure the program has the deserved focus, resources and attention to develop into an internationally recognized program.
