The Musée du quai Branly – Jacques Chirac is the heir to 200 years of history, enrichment, study and conservation of public collections. It conserves almost 370,000 works originating in Africa, the Near East, Asia, Oceania and the Americas which illustrate the richness and cultural diversity of the non-European civilizations from the Neolithic period (+/-10,000 B.C.) to the 20th century.
Every year, the Musée du Quai Branly-Jacques Chirac offers doctoral and postdoctoral fellowships intended to help early career researchers carry out original and innovative research projects. Applications in the fields of anthropology, ethnomusicology, art history, history, archeology (excluding paleontology), sociology and performing arts are accepted, with special consideration given to projects that focus on the arts, techniques, material culture and heritage of non-European cultures, as well as those on museums and their collections. Applicants should indicate how their projects will benefit from access to the resources of the Musée du Quai Branly – Jacques Chirac.
