During the first year, in addition to research and writing for publication, the A. W. Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow will design and direct an intensive week-long seminar for the predoctoral fellows at the Center, focusing on a topic related to the applicant's field of interest and with a special emphasis on methodological issues. In the second academic year, while continuing research and writing in residence, the Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow will be expected to teach one course (advanced undergraduate or graduate) by arrangement at a neighboring university, and direct a week-long seminar for the predoctoral fellows. One award will be made.

Applications will be considered for research in the history, theory, and criticism of the visual arts of any time period or culture. For appointment to the A. W. Mellon Postdoctoral Fellowship in 2018-2020, the Center encourages applications in the fields of the visual arts and culture of African Americans, Africa, and the African daspora. Applicants for 2018-2020 must have received the PhD degree between October 1, 2012, and October 1, 2017. Applications must be submitted by October 15, 2017.
