2008-2009 Postgraduate Fellowships in Conservation of Museum
    Collections
Smithsonian Institution

The Smithsonian's Office of Research Training and Services (ORTS)
has announced one-year fellowships for recent graduates of masters
programs in art and archaeological conservation or for conservation
scientists to conduct research and gain further training at the
Smithsonian in the conservation of objects in its collections.  The
fellowship begins in the fall of 2008. A stipend of $30,000 is being
offered plus allowances. The prospective fellow must first contact
the conservator or scientist with whom he or she would like to work.
If the potential supervisor confirms that candidacy is suitable,
application must be made through ORTS. Program guidelines,
instructions, cover sheets, and letters for your referees are
available at <URL:http://www.si.edu/ofg/ofgapp.htm>. The deadline is
January 15, 2008.

As one of the conservation laboratories in which a fellowship is
offered, the Smithsonian's Museum Conservation Institute (MCI)
offers postings for treatment of Smithsonian material and research
projects that make use of MCI's excellent analytical capabilities
