Internships and Opportunities
The Yale Center for British Art offers a number of opportunities for undergraduate students through postdoctoral researchers to become involved in its programs.
Bartels Art Museum Summer and Academic-Year Internships
Center/YCBA Postdoctoral Fellowship
The Center for Advanced Study in the Visual Arts and the Yale Center for British Art jointly offer, on a biennial basis, up to two postdoctoral fellowships for two consecutive years each. The fellowship supports research for recent or soon-to-be PhDs in the history, theory, and criticism of modern and contemporary visual arts who are from historically marginalized or disadvantaged groups and who seek to expand their ability to serve as curators and scholars in fields beyond those for which they received (or are about to receive) their doctoral degrees. Fellows will work with curators, conservators, and educators at the National Gallery of Art and the YCBA to learn about the curation, conservation, presentation, and interpretation of the museums’ historical, pre-20th-century collections.
Graduate Research Assistantships
These research positions are open to Yale graduate students. Graduate Research Assistantships enhance the educational experiences provided by academic coursework and teaching assistantships at the university, allowing students to extend their range of academic specializations and expertise. Graduate Research Assistants augment their research skills through direct contact with objects in the collections.
Yale in London
Yale in London is an exciting opportunity for Yale University undergraduates to live and study in London during the spring term or the summer break while earning full credits. The program is hosted by Yale’s Paul Mellon Centre for Studies in British Art (PMC)—a world-class research center in central London. Courses change each term and include topics in historic and contemporary British art, architecture, literature, and drama.
