Post-doctoral Research Fellowships

The Henry Moore Foundation’s Grants Programme supports a small number of two-year Post-doctoral Research Fellowships in the field of sculpture studies. Managed by the Henry Moore Institute, a centre for the study and enjoyment of sculpture based in Leeds, the Fellowships assist scholars who have recently completed doctoral studies to prepare a substantial publication or similar research output. The Foundation awards a grant of up to £21,000 per annum towards the Fellowship.

Applicants must have an affiliation with a British university department, that will act as host to the Fellow from September 2019. Fellows will be expected to present the development of their work quarterly to the Henry Moore Institute. Previous post-doctoral fellows have gained international recognition for their publications, with many now holding senior posts in academia and the arts more widely.

Details for applicants can be found in the 'Downloadable resources' section on this page.

The deadline to apply for our 2019 Post-doctoral Research Fellowships has now passed.
