The Walters Art Museum is offering an Andrew W. Mellon advanced
training fellowship in book and/or paper conservation to begin fall
2007. This is a one-year position with the option for renewal for a
second year. The annual stipend is $35,000 and $3,000 for
travel/research plus a generous benefits package.

The Walters is a museum with collections that date from ancient
times to the early 20th century that include significant holdings of
Western and Asian works of art on paper, medieval manuscripts,
illustrated printed books and fine bindings.

The Fellow will be expected to participate in the preservation of
the museum collections and also be involved in a wide range of
professional activities. The Fellow will work half time on
treatment, preventative maintenance, and other staff activities

focus on a research project that should culminate in a paper of
publishable quality.

Candidates should be graduates of a recognized conservation training
program or have equivalent experience. Applications should include a
letter of interest, current resume, writing sample, two letters of
recommendation from conservation professionals, and one letter of
personal reference. Send applications to:
