Andrew W. Mellon Conservation Fellowship - 2008/2009
(3 internships)
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
treating works of art in well equipped, production-oriented
conservation laboratories. Conservation involvement in permanent
collection exhibitions and special exhibitions will enhance training
opportunities.  Collaborative projects with the Center's Research
Laboratory are possible.  Successful candidates will have the
opportunity to participate in informal lectures, symposia, and
workshops and to visit and collaborate with nearby cultural
institutions.  The deadline for applications is March 14, 2008.
Successful candidates will be notified by April 1, 2008.

Fellowship positions will be available beginning Fall 2008.

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.
