Job: Linda Wyatt Gruber '66 Curatorial Fellowship in Photography

The Davis Museum at Wellesley College seeks applications for the inaugural Linda Wyatt Gruber '66 Curatorial Fellowship in Photography. The Gruber Fellowship is a new and dynamic opportunity for emerging curators focused on the realm of photography, and offers an outstanding 2-year curatorial appoint to a recent Ph.D. in Art History and or an allied field with specialization in the history of photography. The successful appointee will mine an aspect of the Davis photography holdings to produce an exhibition at the Museum. 

The Gruber Fellowship will be awarded to a candidate with exceptional credentials and promise, and who produces an outstanding proposal for an exhibition rooted in the Davis collections.

Applicants must have received the Ph.D. with a focus on photography within 3 years prior to the application deadline. Important criteria for successful appointment are evidence of outstanding scholarship and expertise in the history of photography, including its materials and processes, from its mid-19th century invention to contemporary explorations; strong commitment to curatorial practice and museum work; and willingness to be a collegial member of the Davis Museum staff and the larger community at Wellesley College.
