Fred Grubel Fellowship

The LBI announces the availability of a paid summer internship program for a graduate student who will participate in work on a specific research topic (jointly determined by the candidate and the LBI) related to LBI collections, which can include archives, library, photo collection, and art collection. The research project should pertain to the lives of refugees of the 1930s and 1940s in New York. The fellow will be supervised by the director of research and will work on a day-to-day basis with archives and library staff.

Ph.D. candidates from history, sociology, literature, or Jewish studies programs are eligible. The compensation is $1,500 per month.

The deadline for applications is November 14, 2013 for internships during Summer 2014. Decisions will be made in early spring.

The application form (DOC) is available online. For further information please email Dr. Frank Mecklenburg at
