The Smithsonian Center for Materials Research and Education (SCMRE)
and the Smithsonian Office of Fellowships announce three one-year
opportunities for advanced training beginning in the fall of 2005.
Health insurance will be available.

Postgraduate Fellowship in Conservation

    One postgraduate fellowship will be awarded in the conservation
    of paintings, objects, textiles, or furniture and wooden
    objects. The successful candidate will work with a senior staff
    conservator on the treatment of material from Smithsonian
    collections and carry out a research project. The fellowship
    stipend is $22,000; in addition, there is a travel/research
    allowance of $2,000.

Advanced Training in Archaeological Conservation

    One training opportunity will be offered as part of the
    Archaeological Conservation Program, which seeks to foster the
    integration of conservation and archaeological research through
    collaborative materials-based studies, collections care
    training, and fieldwork participation. At least one technical
    study/research project related to Smithsonian collections will
    be carried out utilizing SCMRE's analytical resources.
    Participation in one field-based archaeological project is
    anticipated, including development of a workshop for an
    archaeological audience. At the postgraduate level, a fellow
    will receive a stipend of $22,000; in addition, there is a
    travel/research allowance of $2,000. At the graduate level, an
    intern will receive funding supplemental to the university's

Post-Doctorate Fellowship in Materials Science

    A one year post-doctorate fellowship in materials science,
    chemistry, wood technology, mechanics, or related field is being
    offered. The fellowship involves research concerning the study
    and preservation of museum materials and collections. This
    includes materials of fabrication, archives, and modern
    materials. The fellow will be working within the broad scope of
    the Smithsonian collections and environments. The goal of the
    research is to better preserve the information content of museum
    materials. The fellowship begins in the fall 2005 and includes a
    stipend of $30,000; health insurance is also available.
