Position at University of Delaware

From: Joyce Hill Stoner <jhstoner<-a>
Date: Tuesday, October 14, 2008
Director of the Winterthur/UD Program in Art Conservation (WUDPAC)

The Department of Art Conservation invites applications for a
tenure-track position at the Associate or Full Professor level, who
will serve as the Director of the Winterthur/UD Program in Art
Conservation (WUDPAC), starting September 1, 2009.

The Director of WUDPAC is responsible for leadership of the
Master's-level graduate program in art conservation and teaching in
his or her specialty (conservation treatment, conservation science,
or related fields such as technical art history or archaeology). The
Director reports to the Chairperson of Art Conservation and
responsibilities include but are not limited to mentoring and
advising students, supervising placements for internships and summer
work projects, managing the teaching schedule and the WUDPAC budget,
and coordination of faculty appointments, admissions, orientation,
and final oral presentations, portfolios, and exams. The position
also involves donor cultivation, tours and public outreach. The
WUDPAC Director chairs the Executive Committee and serves on the
Curriculum and Admissions Committees. It is anticipated that the
WUDPAC Director will be assisted by an Associate Director. The
WUDPAC program, which began in 1974 and is one of five
graduate-level conservation programs in the United States, accepts
up to 10 students a year. The WUDPAC director will be expected to
work closely with the Director of the Winterthur Conservation
Department, the faculty at Winterthur and the University of
Delaware, faculty at other North American and international graduate
conservation programs, and graduates of the WUDPAC program. He or
she will be expected to teach and to carry out research as is
expected of all University of Delaware tenure-track and tenured
faculty members.

Qualifications: Senior professional in conservation or related
fields, with a Master's degree and possibly a Ph.D. Salary and level
of faculty appointment will be commensurate with experience,
research, and publications.
