The M+ / Design Trust Research Fellowship 2018 programme aims to support an original research project investigating issues relating to design and architecture in the Greater Pearl River Delta region, and between the region and other parts of the world. Applicants should engage in advanced historical research on either a single discipline, such as architecture, graphic design, industrial design and urbanism, or cross-disciplinary developments, taking into consideration the region's cultural, social, economic, and political milieus as well as its international and cross-cultural networks. The successful applicant will be attached to M+ for three to six months in 2018, conducting independent research, preferably on a full-time basis.
The Fellowship is open for application until 24 July 2017. Applications are welcome from individuals of all nationalities whose areas of research are in design, architecture, or a related field. Applicants should either hold a postgraduate degree in a relevant discipline or an undergraduate degree with minimum three years relevant professional work or academic research experience.
The selected fellow will be provided a lump-sum stipend of up to HKD 40,000 per month during the fellowship. An overseas fellow may request a one-time travel subsidy of up to HKD 10,000, covering the cost of transportation to and from Hong Kong.
