Goethe Institut and Haus der Kunst have established a post-doctoral 
fellowship program:

Goethe-Institut Fellowship at Haus Der Kunst

The program was inaugurated in August 2013 and awards each fellowship 
for one academic year. The second fellowship is to start in August 

Haus der Kunst is a non-collecting public museum and a key global 
center for contemporary art located in Munich, Germany. It is 
dedicated to the exploration of the diverse histories of contemporary 
art based on a foundation of focused exhibitions, research, and 
education. The museum's aim is to further establish research as an 
integral cornerstone of its vision, and to develop a context for 
scholarship that allows for the interplay of art, culture, politics, 
and society in the way modern and contemporary art are understood on 
a global level. The "Goethe-Institut Fellowship" is an important 
building block towards this aim.

Supported by the Goethe-Institut, the Goethe-Institut Fellowship at 
Haus der Kunst is designed for international emerging scholars whose 
research focuses on global perspectives on modern and contemporary 
art in the second half of the 20th century and 21st century.

The fellowship shall concentrate on the research for a comprehensive 
exhibition project on the global art historical developments of the 
Post-war era. The Post-war project is substantially supported by the 
German Federal Cultural Foundation, and is the first of a trilogy 
whose second and third chapters will be devoted to the periods of 
Post-colonialism and Post-communism. One of the main tasks is the 
research and organisation of a series of seminars and colloquia in 
preparation for the project.

Qualifications and requirements:

- Completed doctorate degree in art history, museum studies or related fields.

- Excellent knowledge of modern and contemporary art, with a global 
perspective and understanding on the art histories of 1945 onwards.

- Demonstrated accomplishments in the field of research, education
