Post-Graduate Fellowship
Archaeological Conservation
Smithsonian Center for Materials Research and Education (SCMRE)

The Smithsonian Center for Materials Research and Education (SCMRE)
announces a post-graduate fellowship in archaeological conservation.
This one-year fellowship begins in fall 2003 and includes a stipend
of $22,000 with an additional travel/research allowance of $2,000;
health insurance is available.

The fellowship is a component of SCMRE's archaeological conservation
program, which seeks to foster the integration of conservation and
archaeological research through collaborative materials-based
studies, collections care training, and fieldwork participation. The
program utilizes SCMRE's analytical resources, linkages to other SI
collections and field-oriented collaborations, to cultivate the
fellow's professional skills in the preservation and study of
archaeological materials.  During the year, the fellow will be
expected to carry out at least one technical study/research project
(directed toward archaeological object materials or their
conservation issues) and to develop a workshop that can be offered
to an archaeological audience.  Participation in one field-based
archaeological project is anticipated.

Eligibility:  The applicant should be a recent graduate of a
recognized conservation training program or have equivalent training
and experience. The applicant should have a commitment to the
conservation of archaeological materials, and a proven record of
research, writing ability, and English language skills.  Some
fieldwork experience is preferred.  Fellowships are awarded without
regard to age, sex, race, or nationality of the applicant.

Application Procedure: An applicant must submit the following
materials in English.

    *   Transcripts of both undergraduate and graduate courses of
        academic study with an explanation of the evaluation system
        if it is not equivalent to that of the US;

    *   A curriculum vitae including basic biographical information,
        current and permanent addresses, phone numbers, and e-mail

    *   At least two examples of pertinent publications, lectures,
        or other written material;

    *   A cover letter presenting the applicant's intent in applying
        for the fellowship, research interests and workshop topic

    *   Two letters of recommendation from conservation
        professionals familiar with the applicant's work.
