Graduate Research Assistantships

Graduate Research Assistantships at the Yale University Art Gallery and the Yale Center for British Art are designed to provide Yale doctoral students, in their second through sixth year, the opportunity to work as part of an intellectual team on a major scholarly project at one of the museums.

About the Assistantships

Graduate Research Assistantships (GRAs) are paid research positions, commensurate with a teaching fellowship of 17.5 hours per week, that are designed to enhance the educational experiences provided by academic course work and teaching fellowships at the University, allowing students to extend their range of academic specializations and expertise, and to augment research skills by direct contact with objects in the collections. GRAs are excused from their departmental teaching duties during the tenure of the research assistantship.

Research assistantship positions are open to graduate students in all disciplines.

Applicants for research assistantship positions at the Gallery may also be considered for Gallery curatorial internships. However, curatorial internships, unlike research assistantships, involve a flexible number of work hours and may not be substituted for a teaching requirement.

The application deadline for 2015 fellowships has passed.
