Professor, Conservation Science
Buffalo State College

The Art Conservation Department at Buffalo State College invites
applications for the newly established Andrew W. Mellon
Professorship in Conservation Science. The full-time appointment
will be at a professorial rank determined by qualifications.

The department offers an internationally recognized three-year
program of graduate instruction leading to the award of the M.A.
degree and a Certificate of Advanced Study in Art Conservation. The
Mellon Professorship provides a unique chance to be part of a
dynamic group of dedicated and distinguished educators, who are also
respected practitioners of conservation. The successful candidate
and the existing science faculty will share in the science
education, training, and mentoring of a small group of outstanding
graduate students; will participate in the continuing development of
the department9s science curriculum; and will be expected to
maintain an active research program that continues her or his
previous research in conservation science, or adapts existing
research interests to problems pertaining to the field of art
conservation and the preservation of material culture.  The Mellon
Professor will develop research projects involving participation of
conservation students that are carried out collaboratively with both
department and, when appropriate, other colleagues.

The successful applicant must hold a Ph.D. in a physical science,
preferably materials science and engineering or chemistry,
preferably organic chemistry.  Postgraduate professional experience
in science is also preferred as is a solid research and publication
record. Effective communication skills are essential. She or he must
evidence a high level of commitment to and/or excellence in teaching
at the graduate level. Doctoral and/or postdoctoral experience in
conservation science research, or research immediately relevant to
conservation of art and other objects of material culture, is
strongly preferred as is experience carrying out successful research
projects in collaboration with other scientists and/or conservators.

Prospective applicants for the position, which is to be filled by
August 1, 2004, at the earliest, should submit a resume, including
three references, and a letter of interest to
