Tate is occasionally able to offer research posts relating to various aspects of its research programme. Often these posts are funded by external grant-giving bodies or are created in partnership with other institutions. Details of these posts and the application process will be provided here.
Terra Foundation Research Fellow in American Art
This prestigious Research Fellowship offers the chance to shape an innovative research programme for a world-class gallery.
The aim of Tate is to increase public awareness, understanding and enjoyment of British art from the 16th century to the present day, and of international modern and contemporary art. Our Research Department leads and supports research activity in a wide range of subject areas. With the support of the Terra Foundation for American Art we are now undertaking an innovative programme of research into modern American art to 1980 as represented in the Tate collection, which includes work by artists such as Carl Andre, Bruce Nauman, Mark Rothko, Ed Ruscha, Andy Warhol and Francesca Woodman.
Research fellowships are available for scholars who seek to pursue their research at Tate for a period ranging from three months to three years. Fellowships are non-stipendiary but offer hot-desk facilities at Tates Research department, based at Millbank, London.
If you are interested in applying for a fellowship, please email email@example.com explaining why you would like to be based at Tate and the relevance of your research to Tate. Address your email to Professor Nigel Llewellyn, Head of Research, Tate.
