The Courtauld Institute of Art Research Forum, with the support of the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, is offering a fellowship to an early career researcher in the art of the Italian Renaissance. An interest in the relationship between art and literature is desirable.  This fellowship will give the Fellow the opportunity to pursue a research project while gaining teaching experience in a research environment and participating in the launch of an interdisciplinary M.A. course.  In addition to undertaking research and playing an active role in the Research Forum, the Fellow is expected to teach one B.A. course and to act as an affiliate to the Research Forum/Mellon Foundation M.A. course being offered for the first time in 2015-2016 (From Dante to Michelangelo: Rhetoric, Representation and Identity in Italian Art and Literature, c. 1300-1550) by Dr Scott Nethersole in collaboration with the Mellon Visiting Professor, Dr Frederica Pich (Lecturer in Italian, University of Leeds), a specialist in Italian literature, especially the relationship between poetry and portraiture.

Applicants must be at an early stage of their career, not currently holding or having held a permanent university post and having received a doctorate within the three years prior to the start date of the post (and no later than December 2014).
