Post-Graduate Research Associateship in Painting Conservation
Yale Center for British Art

The Yale Center for British Art is offering a Post-Graduate Research
Associateship for Advanced Training in the Conservation of
Paintings.  The term of the associateship will be two years with the
possibility of a renewal for a third year.  Candidates must hold a
master's degree in conservation awarded within the past 3 years and
have the ability to undertake research and the highest quality
conservation treatments.

The Yale Center for British Art holds more than 1800 paintings.
Together with more than 50,000 works of art on paper and 35,000 rare
books, the Center forms the largest collection of British art
outside the United Kingdom and offers a superb opportunity to study
the history of British painting at a major university.  The Center
engages in interdisciplinary projects involving many parts of Yale,
and the Fellow will have opportunities to work with museum curators
and conservators as well as students and faculty.

Painting conservation is the newest department at the center, and
the successful candidate will be expected to take an active role in
the first systematic technical study of the collection.  S/he will
be encouraged to expand and refine conservation skills through
active treatments while developing a sense of connoisseurship
through the study of collections.  The Fellow will work under the
supervision of the Chief Painting Conservator in a new, well
equipped studio.  S/he will undertake research to be shared with the
museum, conservation, and scholarly communities, and make full use
of the Center and university at large.

Written applications should include: letter describing the
candidate's professional interest in the position; curriculum vitae;
record of Master's degree in conservation; transcript of graduate
course of study (unofficial copy is acceptable); names of three
references, with full contact information; three confidential
