Date: Monday, November 14, 2005
Conservation Assistant (16 week project)
Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts

Ref: SC1091

UKP16,553 to UKP19,093 per annum

The Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts is the museum and gallery of
the University of East Anglia. Designed by Lord Norman Foster, the
Centre has become one of the iconic buildings of the late 20th
century and houses a significant collection of modern and ancient
art, given to the University by Sir Robert and Lady Sainsbury. The
Centre is currently closed for a major refurbishment and building
project and will be reopening in May 2006. The post will assist with
the redisplay of the collections and the installation of a major
exhibition 'Pacific Encounters--Art and Divinity in Polynesia
1760-1860' prior to our reopening.

You will have a recognised conservation qualification and experience
of working with objects in a museum or gallery setting. You will
also have practical hands-on conservation experience and a sound
understanding of the principles of preventive conservation,
collections care, art handling and packing. Ideally, you will also
have experience of making mounts for the support and display of
objects and will have used a collections management system for
documenting object moves, condition reports and treatments. You will
be based at the SCVA, within a well equipped Conservation Studio and
will be expected to contribute constructively to the day to day work
of the Studio.
