Applications call for Migelien Gerritzen Fellowship on conservation and scientific research. The Migelien Gerritzen Fellowship welcomes proposals for conservation and scientific research that make use of the Rijksmuseum’s collection and resources. Rijksmuseum welcomes international, independent research proposals that open new perspectives on the Rijksmuseum’s collection, its history, and activities. The purpose of the Fellowship Programme is to encourage and support scholarly investigation; and to contribute to academic discourses while strengthening bonds between the museum and universities.
The programme enables highly talented candidates to base part of their research at the Rijksmuseum, and offers access to the museum’s expertise, collections, library and laboratories. Furthermore, it facilitates opportunities for Fellows to engage in workshops and excursions to encourage an exchange of knowledge – both amongst themselves and the broader museum audience.
This Fellowship enables early career scholars to conduct conservation and scientific research on artworks and historical artifacts. The focus should be the Rijksmuseum collection or ideation that has been initiated at the Rijksmuseum. A suitable project might entail technical research into objects in the Rijksmuseum’s collection or analytical techniques, preventive conservation, or treatment methodologies.
This fellowship enables candidates to collaborate with conservators, curators and scientists active at the Rijksmuseum. The Fellowship will preferably result in an article for publication, the content, and form of which will be decided by the Fellow in consultation with the Rijksmuseum. The Rijksmuseum will provide joint working space for the Fellows, in order to stimulate an exchange of knowledge, ideas, and experience. Access will be given to all relevant resources in the museum, such as the Research Library Collections, collection documentation, and the conservation laboratories of the Rijksmuseum and the University of Amsterdam.
