Ethnographic Conservator

    The Cotsen Institute of Archaeology at UCLA seeks to hire an
    Ethnographic Conservator as one of two new faculty required for
    the UCLA/Getty Program in the Conservation of Archaeological and
    Ethnographic Materials. It is intended to appoint the successful
    candidate by July 2004. This exciting development is the result
    of a collaboration between UCLA and the Getty Trust, to
    establish a new conservation program, which will be housed in
    purpose built facilities at the Getty Villa.

    The program will lead to the award of an MA by UCLA in the
    Conservation of Archaeological and Ethnographic Materials.  This
    will be a three year MA degree, whose inception is planned for
    the Fall of 2005, and will comprise two years of classroom and
    laboratory work followed by one year of supervised internship.
    Preliminary information on the program is posted at
    <URL:http://www.ioa.ucla.edu/conservation.htm>.

    The candidate will be jointly appointed as a tenure track
    assistant professor in the Interdepartmental Program in
    Archaeology and an appropriate home department.  The candidate
    will be expected to undertake some teaching within their home
    department which may be complementary to that undertaken within
    the conservation program.

    Applicants should be trained conservators, preferably with an
    appropriate qualification from a recognised conservation
    program, either in the United States or abroad.  Experience in
    the conservation of ethnographic materials, as well as
    conservation teaching experience is desirable. The applicant may
    hold either an MA or PhD degree. Salary will be commensurate
    with experience. Review of applications will begin immediately
    and will continue until the position is filled.
