Deadline for application: March 15, 2018

Crossroads Eurasia is now accepting applications for its 2018 summer internship program in Russia.

What you get
– Resume worthy work experience
– Relaxed vibe of a provincial Russian city
– Live, work, relax like a local
– Real friendships with Russians your age
– Locally based coordinator
– Career advice and alumni network

Deadlines
The application deadline is 15th March 2018. We fill spots on a rolling basis, so apply early. Discounts are also available to early applicants.

Internship: Dodge Assistantships at the Zimmerli Art Museum (Rutgers U.)

Deadline for applications: January 10th, 2018

Dodge Assistantships at the Zimmerli Art Museum for Graduate Study in the Department of Art History, Rutgers University, New Brunswick NJ

The Zimmerli Art Museum at Rutgers University offers Dodge Graduate Assistantships to doctoral candidates admitted to the Department of Art History who are committed to research on unofficial art of the former Soviet Union. Established in 2002 with a generous endowment from the Avenir Foundation in honor of Norton T. and Nancy Dodge, this assistantship program provides full tuition, fees, and health benefits, as well as an annual stipend for living expenses, to graduate students (known as Dodge Fellows). Travel funds for research and language study abroad, as well as for participation in conferences, are also available to Dodge Fellows by formal application.

Dodge Fellows who enter Rutgers without a master’s degree are eligible for five years of assistantship funding. During the course of the first three years, students are obliged to work 15 hours a week in the Zimmerli’s Russian and Soviet curatorial offices; the subsequent two years support dissertation research and writing without any work obligation. Those who enter with a master’s degree are awarded four years of funding, reflecting a shortened period of coursework required for the doctoral degree.

Work at the Zimmerli Art Museum is supervised by Dr. Jane A. Sharp, Associate Professor of Art History and Research Curator for the Dodge Collection, and Dr Julia Tulovsky, Curator for Russian and Soviet Nonconformist Art, with the assistance of other museum staff. The fellows perform a variety of tasks such as curatorial assistance in exhibition and catalogue production as well as administration and collection management. During the third year Dodge Fellows are given the opportunity to curate their own exhibition from the Zimmerli’s Norton and Nancy Dodge Collection.
