Post-graduate Mellon Fellowship in objects conservation (4
Historic New England

Historic New England is seeking applications for a 12-month
postgraduate fellowship in conservation beginning in the fall of
2013. Historic New England, the oldest and largest regional
preservation organization in the United States, owns and operates 36
historic house museums in five states, from Rhode Island to
mid-coast Maine. With more than 110,000 objects, Historic New
England has the most comprehensive and best documented collection of
New England decorative arts and household furnishings in the
country. These collections, which date from the mid-seventeenth to
the twenty-first centuries, include the whole range of goods needed
for day-to-day life, from furniture and clothing to cooking and
heating equipment.

Projects for the year will focus on objects and interiors from the
Quincy House, Quincy, Massachusetts, built in 1770 by Revolutionary
War leader Colonel Josiah Quincy.  Treatment, preventive care and
surveys of objects also including furniture, wallpaper and textiles
from Historic New England's other properties, will also be ongoing.
The successful candidate will gain considerable experience treating
a wide variety of materials in a productive and well equipped
conservation laboratory.

Candidates must be graduates of a conservation training program or
have equivalent experience.  International candidates must currently
have a visa to work in the United States. The stipend for the
fellowship is $25,000 a year plus health 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, Massachusetts,
approximately 45 minutes north of Boston.

Applications will be accepted through April 9, 2013.  Please send
curriculum vitae and cover letter to jobs<-at->historicnewengland<.>org or
