The Department of Jewish Art at Bar-Ilan University invites prospective doctoral candidates to apply for the highly-prized President's Fellowship beginning in the spring semester of the 2023-4 academic year. The four-year fellowship covers tuition and provides a monthly stipend for living expenses.

We anticipate that prospective candidates for the Ph.D. in Jewish Art History Program will specialize in various areas of Jewish Art History, for example: illuminated Jewish books; art and architecture of the synagogue; interfaith dialogue in visual arts; modern Jewish and Israeli art; semiotics of Jewish art; Jewish folk art; personal, gender, social, and national identities as expressed in Jewish and Israeli art, and more. We encourage interdisciplinary research emphasizing art in its historical, social, religious, psychological, and other contexts.

Proposals incorporating both visual and textual studies are also warmly welcomed. Eligibility requirements: completing an MA thesis in art history or a related field. GPA: 90% or higher and final thesis grade of no less than 90%.

Applicants are encouraged to submit [1] a CV, [2] copies of diplomas and transcripts (BA and MA), [3] a summary of the proposed dissertation topic (1 page), and [4] two or three recommendation letters by academic experts relating to the candidate's academic and research excellence (will be sent directly to the Department of Jewish Art).

Applications and supporting materials may be submitted in English or Hebrew to by March 10th, 2024.
