Mellon Fellowship in Paper Conservation and
Post-Graduate Internship in Paintings Conservation
Balboa Art Conservation Center (BACC)

The Balboa Art Conservation Center (BACC), an active regional center
serving 19 member museums, non-member museums, and private
collectors is offering two Advanced Fellowships a Mellon Fellowship
in paper conservation and a post-graduate internship in paintings
conservation.  BACC conservators work with a wide variety of
collection types performing conservation services in examination,
treatment, analysis, and on-site surveys of collections.

The Center is located in San Diego's Balboa Park in a museum
campus-type environment.  Collections served by BACC vary widely in
keeping with the museum community active with the Center.  Paper
conservation staff works with collections that include some archival
materials, but predominantly history and art collections with
emphasis not only in American and European, but S. Asian and some E.
Asian materials as well.

Both fellowships are one-year, post-graduate internships.  The
paintings internship is available pending funding.  Applicants
should be recent graduates of recognized conservation training
programs or have equivalent experience.  The stipends are based upon
a salary of $27,000 plus benefits, four weeks of research leave, and
a $1,500 travel allowance in support of study projects.  The
internships are scheduled to begin in September 2006. Applicants
should apply in writing with a resume, three professional
references, and at least three examples of treatment experience.
