Funding Opportunities at the Henry Moore Foundation

Henry Moore Foundation Post-doctoral Research Fellowships

The Henry Moore Foundation supports a small number of two-year post-doctoral research fellowships in the field of sculpture studies at a British university from the autumn of 2012. Managed by the Henry Moore Institute, these Fellowships assist scholars who have recently completed doctoral studies to prepare a substantial publication or similar research output. The Foundation will award a grant of up to £21,000 per annum towards the fellowship.

Applicants must have an affiliation with a university department who will act as the host to the Fellow. Fellows will be expected to present the development of their work every six months to the Henry Moore Institute, a centre for the study of sculpture based in Leeds. The Fellowships run for two years, however if the Fellow does not fulfil his/her obligations to the University in the first year, the second year’s funding could at the Foundation’s discretion be revoked.

Applications marked ‘Post-Doctoral Research Fellowship Grants’ should be sent by 11 June 2012 to:

Kirstie Gregory (Research Programme Assistant), Henry Moore Institute, 74 The Headrow, Leeds LS1 3AH
