It is seeking applications for a postdoctoral fellow who will contribute to the ERC-funded project Art Historiographies in Central and Eastern Europe. An Inquiry from the Perspective of Entangled Histories (Starting Grant 2018-23). The Fellowship requires the candidate to undertake substantial new research into questions pertaining to the art and architectural histories produced in Central and Eastern Europe between 1850-1950. The project will test the methodological value of an ‘entangled histories’ approach as a means of tracing relationships between the art histories produced in the region and farther afield from a non-hierarchical perspective. The Fellow will be expected to consolidate his/her academic profile and expertise through publications and collaborations, as well as to contribute to the research culture of New Europe College. Residency in Romania is not a necessary condition, although study facilities will be provided in the College should the Fellow choose to live in Bucharest.

The Fellow will join an international team of researchers led by Principal Investigator Dr Ada Hajdu. The project has received funding from the European Research Council under the European Union’s 2020 research and innovation programme (Grant Agreement No. 802700).
