document assessment and description for the Documentary Sources
database in collaboration with the Project's research team onsite in
the Archivio di Stato di Firenze and 10 months of independent
research on a topic related to the Medici Granducal Archive, carried
out in two 5-month segments in the second and third year of the
fellowship period.

Fellows will have the following qualifications: a completed PhD or
