Conservation Fellowships
At the Conservation Center,
Los Angeles County Museum of Art

The Conservation Center of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art is
inviting applications for Andrew W. Mellon Fellowships.  The areas
of specialization are Textiles, Objects and Research.  Each
fellowship, a full time position for one year, includes a stipend of
$22,500 plus benefits.  A $2,500 travel allowance for study/research
will be allocated at the discretion of the department head.

Available Immediately: The Conservation Center is currently seeking
a fellow to work in our new Laser Conservation Research section.
This position is designed to interact with three sections of
Conservation, specifically Laser Conservation, Objects and
Conservation Research.  Under supervision, the fellow will prepare
scientific samples for surface studies after laser ablation, aid in
developing laser cleaning protocols, comparative cleaning
treatments, aging studies and documentation.

Ongoing Applications for Fall 2000 Fellowships: Fellowship positions
for Textile and Objects Conservation will be available as of
September 1, 2000 or upon consultation with the Head of
Conservation. These fellowships will be devoted 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.
