Research Fellowships - Academic year 2014 – 2015
The musée du quai Branly offers every year doctoral and post-doctoral scholarships to support Ph.D. candidates and early career scholars in pursuing innovative research projects.
The academic fields concerned are: anthropology, ethnomusicology, art history, history, archaeology, sociology, performance studies.
The research topics concerned are: Western and non-Western arts, material and immaterial heritage, museum institutions and their collections, technology, ritual performance and material culture.
The projects most likely to benefit from the environment of the musée du quai Branly will be examined with particular attention.
During the year of their fellowship, the laureates will present in the museum’s Research and Higher Education Department’s internal seminar a scientific paper intended for later publication. They will be required to deliver a detailed report to the museum’s research department at the end of the fellowship.
Three doctoral fellowships are offered to support PhD candidates in completing their dissertation; candidates must be at least in the third year (post-fieldwork writing stage) of their doctoral program during the academic year 2014-2015 (in a university in France or abroad).

The doctoral fellowships are limited to a period of 12 months (non-renewable), from October the 1st to September the 30th of each year. They consist in a monthly allowance which in 2013 was of 1300 Euros net and are awarded after assessment and selection of the applications by the Museum’s Scientific Committee. No condition of nationality applies.
