Historic New England (formerly known as Society for the Preservation
of New England Antiquities) is seeking applications for one and
possibly two, one year, post-graduate fellowships in objects and/or
furniture conservation beginning in the fall of 2005.

Projects for the year will focus on the treatment of objects from
Castle Tucker, an 1807 house in Wiscasset, Maine.  Treatments will
also include material from Historic New England's 35 historic
properties spread throughout New England. Fellows will also
participate is a conservation survey of collections housed at
Beauport, the summer home of influential designer Henry David
Sleeper in Gloucester, Massachusetts. Participation in preventive
conservation projects is expected as is occasional travel to
Historic New England sites.

Candidates must be graduates of a conservation training program or
have equivalent experience and be legally entitled to work in the
United States. The stipend for both fellowships will be $25,000 with
an additional $2,000 for travel.  The Historic New England's lab is
located in Haverhill, MA approximately 45 minutes north of Boston.
