Historic New England

Historic New England is seeking applications for a 12-month
postgraduate fellowship in conservation beginning in the fall of
2009. Historic New England owns and operates 36 historic properties
and its artifact collections include 110,000 American and European
decorative arts, furniture, and textiles dating from the late-17th
through the 20th century. Projects for the year will focus on
preparations for Historic New England's centennial celebration in
2010. This will include the treatment of objects for the loan
exhibition of the Winter Antiques Show in New York City in January,
2010. Treatments will also focus on objects and interiors at
Beauport, The Sleeper-McCann House, Gloucester, Massachusetts, which
recently received a Save America's Treasures grant, as well as
objects from Historic New England's other 35 properties.  In
addition, the conservation team will be conducting a conservation
survey at the Phillips House, Salem, MA and participating in all
aspects of object handling and movement involved in Historic New
England's traveling exhibition, America's Kitchens.

Candidates must be graduates of a conservation training program or
have equivalent experience and be legally entitled to work in the
United States. The stipend for the fellowship is $25,000 a year plus
benefits. Additional funds for travel and research may be available.
The fellowship is based at Historic New England's conservation
laboratory located in the Collections and Conservation Center in
Haverhill, MA, approximately 45 minutes north of Boston.  Please
