Conservation Fellowships
Conservation Center,
Los Angeles County Museum of Art

The Conservation Center at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art is
inviting applications for Andrew W. Mellon Fellowships.  One or more
fellowships, depending on available funding, will be awarded in
textile or objects conservation.  Each fellowship, a full time
position for one year, includes a stipend of $22,500 ($1,875 per
month) plus benefits.  A $2,500 travel allowance for study/research
will be allocated at the discretion of the department head.

Each fellowship will be devoted primarily to the study, examination
and treatment of works of art in the extensive collections at the
Los Angeles County Museum of Art.  Successful candidates will gain
considerable experience working on significant art objects in a
well-equipped, production-oriented conservation laboratory.
Conservation involvement in rotating exhibitions, special
exhibitions and loans will provide additional training
opportunities.  Research projects are encouraged.  Participation in
informal lectures, symposia, workshops, etc., will contribute to the
fellowship program as well as the opportunity to visit and
collaborate with nearby cultural institutions.

Fellowship positions will be available as of October 1, 1999.

Eligibility: Candidates will be considered who have graduated from a
recognized conservation training program, with the appropriate
specializations, or who have similar training or experience.

        current and permanent addresses and telephone numbers,

    3.  A short statement of the candidate's interest and intent in
