Position at Tate

From: Sally Spenceley <sally.spenceley>
Date: Friday, March 28, 2003
Conservation Scientist - Fellowship
Salary range: UKP19,077-21,256
Two-year fixed term contract

Tate is world-renowned for its work on the technical investigation,
conservation and restoration of 20th Century international art and
British Art from the 16th Century onwards.

This position has been created as part of a newly funded research
project into cleaning techniques of modern paintings. It presents
you with a rare opportunity to acquire specialist skills and
knowledge in the analysis of modern and contemporary paints, while
participating in a unique international collaboration with other
conservation research laboratories. Your primary responsibility will
be to assist a senior conservation scientist in developing
analytical protocols for the characterisation of modern materials
using GC (gas chromatography), PyGCMS (pyrolysis - gas
chromatography - mass spectrometry) and FTIR (Fourier Transform
infrared microscopy). These techniques require modification to
improve the quality and quantity of analysis of paint samples from
works in the Tate Modern collection.

To be eligible for this fellowship you must have a PhD in chemistry
or a physical science and at least three years' experience in one or
more of the specified analytical techniques. A proven record of
publications is a must, and you should be keen to get involved in
publishing our findings and presenting them at conferences.
