Postgraduate fellowship in archaeological conservation
Archaeological Conservation Program
Smithsonian Center for Materials Research and Education (SCMRE)

SCMRE's Archaeological Conservation Program seeks to improve the
partnership of conservation and field archaeology through an
innovative combination of opportunities, based in the objects
conservation laboratory. The program offers advanced internships in
archaeological conservation, carries out conservation work in
conjunction with archaeological projects, pursues in-depth technical
study of archaeological materials at SCMRE, and provides other
educational offerings focusing on conservation issues in both museum
and archaeology venues.

Under the auspices of the Archaeological Conservation Program, a
one-year postgraduate fellowship in archaeological conservation is
available beginning in the fall 2006. Applicants should be able to
demonstrate a commitment to the conservation of archaeological
materials, and some fieldwork experience is preferred. A research or
technical study project related to archaeological materials and
utilizing SCMRE's analytical resources is a required component of
the fellowship. Participation in at least one field-based
archaeological project is anticipated.

The prospective candidate must first contact Harriet F. (Rae)
Beaubien, senior objects conservator and manager of the
Archaeological Conservation Program, at beaubienh<-a t->si< . >edu or
301-238-1235. In previous years application was made directly
through SCMRE, but this year it must be made by applying for a
Smithsonian Postgraduate Fellowship in Conservation of Museum
Collections offered through the Smithsonian's Office of Fellowships.
Possible research projects should be discussed with Beaubien before
application. For details of application, see
