Stanford University

We are looking for a conservator to write a feasibility study for
the repair of the Maya Lin Timetable on the Stanford University
campus in Stanford, California.  Timetable is both sculpture and
timepiece incorporating Pacific Standard Time, Daylight Savings
Time, and Greenwich Mean Time or Universal Time.  It also runs on a
mechanical system with custom gears and gear ratios that operate
when submerged in running water and powered by electricity. The
sculpture is made of a 16-ton black granite turntable on an
asymmetrical base that revolves once a year and is in constant
motion 24 hours a day.  It is sited in the Science Quad and framed
by the Gates Computer Science and Packard Electrical Engineering
Buildings.  Interest in interdepartmental collaboration and student
involvement desired.

Please direct your letter of interest and CV before December 15,
2006 to
