Marshall Steel Post-Graduate Fellowship in
Paintings/Painted Objects Conservation
Colonial Williamsburg

The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation is seeking qualified candidates
for a post-graduate fellowship in paintings/painted objects
conservation. Supported by the Marshall Steel Conservation
Fellowship Endowment, the fellowship offers a unique opportunity to
work as part of a team of conservators and historians on the
conservation of a rare, 1836 painted room that will be installed in
the Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Folk Art Museum when it reopens at its
new site in early 2007.  The room with its many beautiful and
complex period faux finishes is presently undergoing an extensive
investigation and cleaning.  The individual sought for this position
should possess knowledge of contemporary cleaning systems, careful
hand skills and the ability to focus on treatment.  Experience in
cross-section analysis is also desired.

Candidates should be graduates of a recognized program in
conservation. Experience in research, treatment, documentation, and
microscopy is necessary.  In addition, candidates should have good
communication skills.

The fellowship is for one year (with the possibility of renewal) and
may begin immediately.  Compensation is highly competitive and
commensurate with education level.  The fellowship includes a
benefits package.
