Nielsen Bainbridge Conservation Science Fellowship
Library of Congress

The Library of Congress invites applicants 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 6 months, full-time. During this
period, the fellow will be compensated with a taxable stipend of
$35,000 plus benefits. Applicants must possess a master's degree in
a physical science or equivalent experience. 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 September
16, 2005, to Eleanor Yuille (as indicated below), for a start date
no later than October 1, 2005.
