Andrew W. Mellon
Conservation Fellowship 2007-2008
Conservation Center
Los Angeles County Museum of Art

The Conservation Center at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art will
award a total of three Andrew W. Mellon Fellowships in the
Conservation Center.  The five conservation sections--Paintings,
Textiles, Paper, Objects and Conservation Research--each invite
applicants.  The fellowships, which are full time positions for one
year, include a stipend of $28,080 ($2,340 per month) plus benefits.
A $2,000 travel allowance for study/research will be allocated at
the discretion of the section head and the Director of Conservation.

The fellowship will focus on the study, examination and treatment of
works of art in the collections of the Los Angeles County Museum of
Art. Successful candidates will gain considerable experience working
on works of art in well equipped, production-oriented conservation
laboratories. Conservation involvement in rotating permanent
collections, special exhibitions and movement of collections due to
construction activities will enhance training opportunities.
Research projects are encouraged. Participation in informal
lectures, symposia, workshops and the like, will contribute to the
fellowship program as well as the opportunity to visit and
collaborate with nearby cultural institutions.  The deadline for
applications is March 15, 2007 and successful candidates will be
notified by April 1, 2007.

Fellowship positions will be available beginning Fall 2007.

Eligibility: Candidates will be considered who have graduated from a
recognized conservation training program, with the appropriate
specializations, or who have similar training or experience.  For
the Conservation Research section, a Master's degree in chemistry or
materials science or equivalent training and experience is required.

Interested candidates must submit the following material:

    A curriculum vitae including basic biographical information,
    current and permanent addresses and telephone numbers,
    education, experience and interests.

    Letters of recommendation from three professional references.

    A short statement of the candidate's interest and intent in
    applying for the fellowship.

The above material should be sent to:
