The Norwegian Artistic Research Fellowships Programme intends to secure high level artistic research and leads to expertise as Associate Professor. The Artistic Research Fellowships Programme is among the first in this field in Europe. The programme offers a three-year position as Research Fellow to candidates who have completed the highest achievable art education (a terminal degree) within their subject area. The Fellow must be associated with one of the Norwegian institutions offering one or more creative and/or performing art educations.
At the same time Fellows will participate in an interdisciplinary professional community which may differ from their own artistic position and specialisation. It is a distinctive feature of this recruitment programme that artistic work shall be the chief focus of the research fellows’ projects and that the objective is to develop artistic competence at a high international level. The programme is intended to cover the whole spectrum of artistic expression ranging from dance and design to film, art, music and theatre. The research fellows will thus be part of a cross disciplinary community that goes beyond the boundaries dividing their artistic specialisations.
The Norwegian Academy of Music is one of 11 approved institutions for this programme.
The Fellowship Programme is open to candidates who have completed the highest art education within their subject area. An applicant who has not completed the highest level of higher education within the appropriate field, must document at least five years of professional praxis after having completed a relevant BA degree to be considered for admittance.
