conservation treatments and display mounting.

adjacent to Sydney harbour. The conservation department includes a
permanent staff of 11.  The conservation labs are fully equipped and
are well set up with equipment for examination and analysis
including x-ray equipment, XRF, FTIR and infrared.

This unpaid fellowship is open to an Australian or International
