2-year Rousseau Fellowship
Straus Center for Conservation

The Straus Center for Conservation and Technical Studies at the
Harvard University Art Museums is looking for candidates for a
two-year Rousseau Fellowship, beginning September 3, 2003. The
Rousseau Fellow will work towards an exhibition and research project
on Early Netherlandish Diptychs, a collaboration between the Harvard
University Art Museums, The National Gallery in Washington, and the
Royal Museum of Fine Arts in Antwerp. The fellow will share fully in
all research and curatorial activities.

Advanced graduate students in conservation and/or art history with a
specialization in the technical examination of Early Netherlandish
painting are invited to apply. Practical experience with infrared
reflectography is an important qualification for this position.

The fellowship comes with a $2,200 monthly stipend and an additional
travel allowance. The appointment comes with Harvard University
benefits including contributory health insurance and access to some
University facilities. The fellow will participate in the Museums'
weekly seminar with curatorial and conservation interns.

With collections ranking with the best art museums worldwide, the
Harvard University Art Museums, along with the Straus Center for
Conservation and Technical Studies, are a major center for art
historical research and training. Through the Art Museums'
affiliation with Harvard University, the fellow will have access to
an extraordinary array of resources, including renowned libraries
and extensive athletic facilities. Interns and fellows are
encouraged to take advantage of the many lectures and seminars
offered each year by the University.

Please send your curriculum vitae, three letters of recommendation,
and a statement summarizing your interest in the project.
