Nielsen Bainbridge Conservation Science Fellowship
Library of Congress

The Library of Congress invites applications from interested
scientists for the Nielsen Bainbridge Conservation Science
Fellowship at the Library of Congress. The goal of the fellowship,
located within the Library's Preservation Directorate, Preservation
Research and Testing Division, is to conduct research into the
effects of zeolites on the long-term stability of library materials
and to develop practical library collection preservation
applications for this technology. This work has the potential to
influence preservation strategies for paper and photographic
collections in cultural organizations.

The duration of the fellowship is 12 months, full-time. During this
period, the fellow will be compensated with a taxable stipend of
$35,000. Applicants must possess at least a master's degree in
chemistry or materials science. To apply, submit a cover letter
describing your interest in this opportunity, a resume that outlines
your experience, and the names of three references who can speak to
your qualifications (please include both phone and e-mail contact
information for references). All documents associated with
applications should be submitted electronically by January 31, 2005,
to Eleanor Yuille (as indicated below), for a start date no later
than the spring of 2005.
