The painting conservation department will host a two-year

of 2004 and including a $26,000 stipend. The fellowship will be
devoted to conservation examination, maintenance, and treatments of
paintings in the twentieth-century collection and research on
contemporary artists' materials. The fellow will be encouraged to
produce a publishable paper.  Lectures, symposia and informal
discussions contribute to the fellowship program, in addition to the
significant resources of the Gallery, including the library, the
photographic archives and the scientific research department.

equivalent training will be considered. Applicants should have no
more than five years of work experience. A proven record of research
and writing ability as well as English language skills are required.
