Post-graduate Conservation Fellow or Assistant Conservator
UCLA Fowler Museum of Cultural History

The UCLA Fowler Museum of Cultural History
<URL:> invites applications for either a
Post-graduate Conservation Fellow or Assistant Conservator.  The
one-year, full-time objects conservation position is supported by
private funding; contract renewals will be considered.

Under the direction of the Director of Conservation, the
Post-graduate Conservation Fellow or Assistant Conservator assists
in general conservation activities and specific conservation care of
a 150,000 piece ethnographic collection of artifacts and textiles.
The primary responsibility of the Post-graduate Conservation Fellow
(emphasis on production and learning) or Assistant Conservator
(emphasis on production) is to assist on projects ranging from
simple support lab efforts to complex tasks (i.e., testing and
treatments on artifacts and textiles).

Full responsibility for various preventive conservation practices
(and partial responsibility for other practices) in the museum is
the main focus points of the position; these activities include
aspects of environmental monitoring and integrated pest management.
When performing the examination of selected artifacts and textiles
for in-house exhibitions, and travelling exhibitions, the worker
will design and perform treatment for selected artifacts and
textiles requiring such attention as structural stabilization,
cleaning, and/or visual integration.

Applications will be accepted until either the Post-graduate
Conservation Fellow or Assistant Conservator position is filled; the
earliest start-date is 1 September 00.  Minimum eligibility
requirement is graduation from a recognized conservation training
program with specialization in objects conservation (or similar
training or experience).  Contract duration is one year (nine months
will be considered for Post-Graduate fellows), and notification of
contract renewal will be made by 2 July 01.

Complete job descriptions, salary ranges, and benefit reviews are
available upon request.  Interested candidates may send a letter of
interest and curriculum vitae; selected applicants will be asked to
provide three professional references (or contact information
thereof) and two conservation-related reports representative of the
applicant's work. For additional information or to apply for the
Post-graduate Conservation Fellow position or Assistant Conservator
