Science History Institute’s Beckman Center Now Accepting Applications for 2023–2024 Fellowships
The Beckman Center for the History of Chemistry at the Science History Institute is now accepting applications for our 2023–2024 fellowships. Scholars whose research would benefit from the use of our collections are invited to apply for one of our many programs by January 15, 2023.
The Institute offers several postdoctoral, dissertation, distinguished, and short-term research fellowships. While in residence, Beckman Center fellows are expected to participate in regular informal writing groups, give at least one lecture, and more generally contribute to the vitality of our fellowship community.
Scholars may also apply to the Beckman Center’s new curatorial program, the first of its kind at the Institute. Curatorial fellowships are two-year, benefit-eligible positions that integrate fellows as staff members, offering professional development, portfolio building, networking, and mentorship opportunities in the library and museum fields. Project outcomes build fellows’ resumes while advancing the Institute’s strategic goals.
Hailing from a diverse list of local, national, and international institutions, our current fellows study a vast range of topics in the history and social studies of chemistry, engineering, and the life sciences.
With around 20 scholars in residence each year, the Science History Institute is home to the largest private fellowship program in the historical study of science, medicine, and technology in the United States. Researchers travel from all over the world to use our collections and to take part in a vibrant scholarly community.
