Conservation of Photographic Materials
Chicago History Museum
Chicago, Illinois

The Chicago History Museum is pleased to offer a nine month Samuel
H. Kress Fellowship in photograph conservation to support the
preservation of its important collection of Civil War photographs.
The Fellow will survey the collection, prioritize prints for
conservation treatment, and provide treatment for some of the most
significant and endangered prints.

The Fellowship will begin in the fall of 2012.  A stipend of up to
$29,000 is available payable on a monthly basis through the generous
support of the Samuel H. Kress Foundation, administered by the
Foundation of the American Institute for Conservation (FAIC). Fellow
will be responsible for all taxes.  This position does not qualify
for health benefits. The Fellowship is open to U.S. citizens who are
recent graduates of a recognized graduate conservation program in
the U.S., Canada or abroad.  Additional experience beyond the
program in examination and treatment of photographs is desirable.
The candidate should have excellent written and oral communication
skills to fulfill the objectives of the Fellowship, and should have
the ability to work independently.

The Fellow will be supervised by the Conservator of Paper and
Photographs, and will work closely with other staff in Collections
and Research Departments.  Candidate selection is subject to
approval by the FAIC.

To apply, please send a letter of interest, CV, three references,
and three copies of examination and treatment reports with images
