The Warburg Institute

The Warburg Institute is renowned across the world for the interdisciplinary study of cultural and intellectual history, particularly the role of images in culture. It is dedicated to research on the history of ideas, the dissemination and transformations of texts, ideas and images in society, and the relationship between images, art and their texts and subtexts. Its work is historical, philological and anthropological. The Institute houses a research Library of international importance, a photographic collection organised according to a unique iconographic classification system, and the archive of Aby Warburg, which also holds the papers of other major thinkers of the 20th century who were connected to the Institute.


The Fellowships are for scholars in the early stages of their careers. Candidates must be postdoctoral and have been awarded their doctorate within the preceding five years, i.e. after 1 October 2013. If their doctorate was awarded before 1 October 2013, candidates must make a clear case in their application for any modification of this general rule (e.g. maternity/paternity leave or illness resulting in a career break). Applications will only be accepted from candidates who have successfully completed the defence of their doctorate (viva) before 23 November 2018 (the closing date).
