Rijksmuseum/Museum of National History/Carlsberg Foundation – Postdoc Fellowship for Cultural Relations between Denmark and the Netherlands

Closing Date: 10/01/2022

Two-year postdoctoral fellowship (one year in Copenhagen/Hillerød and one year in Amsterdam) on the subject of the cultural relations between Denmark and the Low Countries, c. 1550-1700.

The Rijksmuseum is a Dutch national museum dedicated to arts and history. The Rijksmuseum was founded in The Hague in 1800 and moved to Amsterdam in 1808.

The Postdoc Fellowship for Cultural Relations between Denmark and the Netherlands is managed by the Frederiksborg Museum of National History in partnership with the Rijksmuseum and is supported by the Carlsberg Foundation.

The purpose of the programme is to encourage and support scholarly investigation, and to contribute to academic discourses while strengthening bonds between the two organising museums and universities. The programme enables highly talented candidates to base part of their research at the Museum of National History of Denmark (Frederiksborg Castle) and the Rijksmuseum, and offers access to the collections, expertise, libraries, archives and laboratories of both institutions. Furthermore, it facilitates opportunities for Fellows to engage in workshops and excursions to encourage exchange of knowledge – both amongst themselves and the broader museum audience.
