Volunteering and work experience posts

The RKD regularly has openings for volunteers and work experience posts. The latter are intended for starters who wish to gain some experience working in the field. Volunteers and those doing work experience carry out tasks for the RKD which are directly related to the RKD collections. We have a preference for applicants who have an affinity with the documental character of this work and who have an interest in art history. All open positions are published on our website.


An RKD Fellowship offers researchers the possibility to consult the abundant collections of the RKD for a specific project. Fellowships are listed on this page of the website, and are a collaboration with the Stedelijk Museum and the Netherlands Institute for Advanced Study in the Humanities and Social Sciences (NIAS) to name but two.
