Description: Tate aims to increase public awareness and appreciation
of art from the 16th century to the modern day. To this end, Tate
presents a stimulating programme of exhibitions, displays and other
activities in its four galleries and by participating in extensive
national and international loan programmes. Through its conservation
department, Tate aims to preserve this collection for posterity and
has a responsibility to ensure that the public can access its works
of art.

The Gallery is offering a two-year Fellowship in the Science Section
of its Conservation Department funded by AXA Art insurance.  The
Fellow will assist a senior conservation scientist in the completion
of a long-term project into the properties of acrylic emulsion
paints and the evaluation of the effects of surface cleaning
treatments on acrylic emulsion paintings; the Tate AXA Art Modern
Paints Project (TAAMPP). The Fellow will also review paint
formulation literature and provide support for ongoing studies into
acrylic emulsion paints, including participation in established
academic and professional collaborations.  In return they will be
able to gain research experience by working alongside Tate staff and
participating in an international collaboration with other
conservation research laboratories.

Applicants must have a graduate degree in chemistry or a physical
science or equivalent with proven experience in the analysis of
organic and polymeric materials and/or conservation-related research
(a PhD is preferred). Knowledge of modern painting materials and an
interest in conservation would be advantageous. You will be
organised, communicative and accurate, with the flexibility to work
well in a team.
