Kress Fellowship in Paintings Conservation
Conservation Center of the Institute of Fine Arts
New York University
Deadline:  Feb. 15, 1999

The Conservation Center seeks applicants for a Samuel H. Kress
Post-Graduate Fellowship in paintings conservation.  Applications
should be graduates of recognized training programs, or have
equivalent experience.  One year of post-graduate work in paintings
conservation, with background in treatment of old master and 19th-
and 20th-century works, is desirable.

The Kress Fellow will be responsible for organizing the studio,
working with students on assigned pieces, assisting Jennifer
Sherman, Associate Conservator, and collaborating with faculty.
Cleaning, restoration, and structural work will be undertaken on
paintings from Kress collections under the supervision of Dianne
Dwyer Modestini, Consulting Conservator. Occasional travel to Kress
collections may be necessary to survey, advise and deal with minor
conservation problems.  Candidates must be able to work
independently and are encouraged to pursue research related to
artist's materials and techniques.

The Fellowship is for one academic year commencing August 15, 1999
and is potentially renewable for an additional two years, pending
funding approval.  There is a stipend of $23,000 per annum, plus
travel allowance and health insurance options.

Applicants should send resume, including names of three references,
