Mellon Fellowships in Paper and
Furniture and Woodwork Conservation

The Philadelphia Museum of Art offers two Mellon Postgraduate
Fellowships, in Paper and in Furniture and Woodwork conservation.
Beginning September 1, 2006 and ending August 31, 2007, each
fellowship may be extended up to three years.  Applicants should be
graduates of a recognized conservation training program or have
equivalent experience.  The Fellows will examine, conduct research,
and perform treatment on works of art on paper and furniture in the
Museum collections and will be expected to participate in
preservation activities throughout the Museum.

The fellowship in paper will focus on conservation of European and
American art on paper but also include work on Indian paintings and
East Asian scrolls and screens.  The first fellowship year will
coincide with the move of the paper conservation laboratory and
collections in the Department of Prints, Drawings and Photographs to
new state-of-the-art facilities.  The Fellow will participate in
many aspects of the move.  The fellowship in furniture and woodwork
will concentrate on the conservation of furniture, architectural
woodwork, painted surfaces, or minimally intrusive upholstery.

Each fellowship includes a stipend of $30,050, health insurance,
$3,000 in travel funds and $2,000 for research support.  Applicants
should send a letter with a statement of interest; a resume;
transcripts of graduate and undergraduate courses; several samples
of examination reports and treatment records with photographs
including any published treatments or research; and two supporting
letters from conservation professionals familiar with the
candidate's work to:
