Smithsonian Postgraduate Fellowships in Conservation of Museum

The Smithsonian Office of Fellowships is pleased to announce
one-year fellowships for recent graduates of masters programs in art
conservation or the equivalent to conduct research and gain further
training in Smithsonian laboratories for conservation of objects in
museum collections. The fellowship begins in the fall of 2006. A
stipend of $30,000 is being offered plus allowances. The prospective
fellow must first contact the conservator with whom he or she would
like to work. If the potential supervisor confirms that candidacy is
suitable, application must be made through the Smithsonian's Office
of Fellowships. Program guidelines, instructions, cover sheets, and
letters for your referees are available on the Office of Fellowships
website: <URL:>. The deadline is
January 15, 2006.

As one of the conservation laboratories in which a fellowship is
offered, the Smithsonian Center for Materials Research and Education
(SCMRE) offers possible postings for research projects and treatment
of material from Smithsonian collections (see

and below for information about the Archaeological Conservation
Program). The candidate should contact one of the following senior
staff conservators:
