Postgraduate Fellowships in Conservation of Museum Collections
Smithsonian

The Smithsonian's Office of Fellowships 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 2010. A stipend of $32,000 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 the Office of Fellowships. Program
guidelines, instructions, cover sheets, and letters for your
referees are available on the Office of Fellowships' web site

The deadline is January 15, 2010.

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
