Charles E. Culpeper
Advanced Training Fellowship in Conservation Science

The Conservation Division of the National Gallery of Art is offering
one fellowship, supported by the Charles E. Culpeper Foundation, in
the Scientific Research Department commencing October 1998. The
two-year fellowship includes a stipend of $21,500 plus a $3,000
allowance for travel and research. The fellowship may be extended
for one additional year. The fellowship will be dedicated to
scientific investigation of conservation and artists' materials, and
research related to the National Gallery's collections. By the end
of the appointment, the fellow will be expected to produce a
publishable paper based on research completed during the fellowship.

Candidates will be considered who have a graduate degree in one of
the sciences or equivalent training; they should have no more than
five years work experience. An interest in art and art conservation
is also required. Candidates should have a proven record of research
and writing ability. Fellowships are awarded without regard to age,
sex, race, or nationality of the applicant. Finalists who are not
United States citizens must provide proof of their own health care
coverage during the period of fellowship. Interested candidates must
submit: transcripts of both undergraduate and graduate courses of
academic study (unofficial copies are acceptable); a curriculum
vitae including basic biographical information, current and
permanent addresses and telephone numbers; offprints of any
publications or lectures; a short statement of the candidate's
interest and intent in applying for the fellowship; two supporting
letters from professionals familiar with the candidate's work and
one letter of personal reference should be sent directly to the
address below. Finalists for the fellowship will be invited for an
interview. Because of the volume of mail received, applications
cannot be returned.

The above application material should be postmarked no later than 8
May 1998 and sent to: Michael Skalka, Conservation Administrator,
National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C. 20565. E-mail address for
