Beckman fellowship 2022-2023

The applications are now officially open for 2022-23 Fellowships at the Beckman Center of the Science History Institute.

This year, the Beckman Center introduces new Curatorial Fellowships, two-year full-time staff positions in the Othmer Library and the Museum intended for historians and other academic researchers in the history of science who are seeking professional opportunities outside of academia. The Beckman Center is located within an institution that boasts a full and active professional staff in each of these fields, allowing for a full support to researchers seeking careers in libraries and museums in addition to those conducting scholarly research.

 

These new fellowships complement the full slate of research fellowships for 2022-23, which includes 12-month Research Postdoctoral Fellowships for recent PhDs, 9-month Dissertation Fellowships for graduate students, 4-month Distinguished Fellowships for senior scholars, and 1-4 month Short-Term Fellowships for researchers of any professional background, as well as the 1-2 week Library Travel Grants.

 

Information about all of fellowships, along with an FAQ, a Guide for Applicants, and the application portal itself, can be found at https://www.sciencehistory.org/fellowships. This cycle’s application deadline is January 15, 2022.
