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).

Applicants are asked to submit (1) a covering letter explaining the  candidate’s specific interest in the Fellowship; (2) a completed
application form; (3) two letters of recommendation, including one from  the candidate’s supervisor – these can be sent separately; and (4) an
