Post-Graduate Fellowship in
Paintings/Painted Objects Conservation
Colonial Williamsburg

The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation is seeking qualified candidates
for a post-graduate fellowship in paintings/painted objects
conservation. The fellowship offers a unique opportunity to work as
part of a team of conservators and historians on the conservation of
a rare, 1836 painted room installed in the newly relocated Abby
Aldrich Rockefeller Folk Art Museum.  The room with its many
beautiful and complex period faux finishes is presently undergoing
an extensive investigation and cleaning.  The individual sought for
this position should possess knowledge of contemporary cleaning
systems, careful hand skills and the ability to focus on treatment.
Experience in cross-section analysis is also desired.

Candidates should be graduates of a recognized program in
conservation. Experience in research, treatment, documentation, and
microscopy is necessary.  In addition, candidates should have good
communication skills.

The fellowship is for one year (with the possibility of renewal) and
begins directly.  Compensation is highly competitive and
commensurate with education level and experience.  A generous
benefits package is included.
