Sherman Fairchild Post Graduate Fellowship in Conservation
The Morgan Library and Museum

The Morgan Library and Museum announces a one-year (renewable up to
three years total) post-graduate fellowship in the Thaw Conservation
Center.  The Sherman Fairchild Post-Graduate Fellowship in
Conservation provides a junior professional with the opportunity to
apply the principles of paper and book conservation acquired through
an accredited graduate program in art conservation or equivalent
work/life experience.  The Fellow will carry out examination,
documentation, analysis, treatment, and research on the Morgan's
magnificent collections of drawings, rare books, and literary,
historical, and music manuscripts, and will contribute significantly
to the institution's program of exhibitions.  Participating in all
Center activities, the Fellow will gain professional experience in
paper and/or book conservation while commencing a conservation
career.

The Thaw Conservation Center is a major resource in New York City
for the conservation and technical study of works on paper and bound
materials.  It has recently re-opened following an expansion and
renovation of the entire Morgan Library and Museum complex designed
by the architect Renzo Piano and completed in April 2006.

        graduate-level program in conservation or be able to

        treatments and research projects is required of all
        applicants.

    *   Candidates should possess strong public speaking and written
        communications skills.

    *   The Fellow should have a demonstrated commitment to the
        profession of conservation and scholarly advancement.

Compensation: The annual stipend is $30,000 and includes benefits.

interviews.  The 2006-2007 Sherman Fairchild Post-Graduate Fellow
