Fellowship at Indiana University

From: Margaret Contompasis <mcontomp>
Date: Wednesday, January 3, 1996
Research Fellowship
Indiana University Art Museum Conservation Department

January 1996 through  December 1996

The Indiana University Art Museum, Bloomington, Indiana, is offering
a one-year scientific research fellowship in the Conservation
Department supported by the National Park Service and the National
Center for Preservation Technology and Training. The appointment
dates are January 1, 1996, through December 31, 1996. The fellowship
includes a stipend of $20,000, plus benefits. The fellowship will be
dedicated primarily to the scientific investigation into the effects
on museum artifacts of contamination with diethylaminoethanol
(DEAE), a widely used anticorrosion boiler additive and will focus
mainly on the University's painting collection. The expected results
are a clarification of the effects of DEAE and a determination of
whether DEAE can be removed from varnish or paint surfaces using
conventional solvent systems. Candidates should have a graduate
degree in one of the sciences with a solid background in organic
chemistry, analytical instrumentation, and microscopy and a strong
interest in art conservation. Candidates must submit transcripts of
both undergraduate and graduate coursework (unofficial copies are
acceptable), a curriculum vitae, offprints of any publications and
lectures, a short statement of the candidate's interest and intent
in applying for the fellowship, and a list of at least four
references. Finalists for the fellowship will be invited for an
interview. The information requested should be sent to

    Indiana University Art Museum

ASAP. Indiana University is an equal opportunity employer.
