The Worcester Art Museum is seeking applicants for a joint position

designed for a paintings conservator with a strong interest and a
demonstrated potential in conservation science and technical
research. The candidate should have a Ph.D. in one of the sciences

working with paintings. A graduate degree in conservation from a
recognized training program and a minimum of 5  years experience as
a museum paintings conservator are also required.

develop the scientific potential of the Conservation Department,
while also being involved in the care of paintings. Those candidates
not in possession of a Ph.D. would be expected to enroll in a Ph.D.
program as soon as possible. Excellent interpersonal and public
speaking skills are essential, as are strong organizational and
writing abilities.
