Donald and Marilyn Keough Curatorial Fellow (Limited Term)

With the generous support of the Donald and Marilyn Keough Foundation, the Snite Museum of Art at the University of Notre Dame has established a pre-doctoral, curatorial fellowship focused primarily on the development of its growing collection of Irish art dating back to the eighteenth century. The Fellow will be appointed for 12 months, working 30 hours per week with the assumption that the remaining 10 hours will be dedicated to the completion of the dissertation. The fellowship carries a $36,000 stipend plus benefits, including medical benefits, life insurance and two-weeks vacation, with an additional $2,000 travel fund to conduct research or attend conferences related to the Museum’s collections. The Fellow will be appointed for one-year with the possibility of renewal (with an attendant standard 3% increase of the stipend) based on progress toward completion of the dissertation and the advancement of the Museum’s objective to raise the profile of its collections through publications, participation in conferences, and the organization of exhibitions. The 12-month appointment runs on the University’s academic calendar, beginning in mid-August or early September 2022. This role does offer a hybrid work schedule.

The primary responsibility will include research into the Snite Museum’s growing collection of Irish prints, drawings, paintings, sculpture, and photographs. The Museum values its collaborations with the Keough-Naughton Institute for Irish Studies (KNI) and the Rare Books and Special Collections (RBSC) division of Hesburgh Libraries whose holdings of Irish material is well known and highly esteemed. Reporting to the Curator of European and American Art before 1900, Fellows will have full access to these resources and the many faculty and visiting scholars from a wide array of disciplines they attract.
