PhD Scholarship in Conservation
University of Melbourne

The Centre for Cultural Materials Conservation at the University of
Melbourne is seeking applications for a PhD scholarship.

"Understanding And Preserving Aboriginal Catholic Church Art in
Northern Australia" is an ARC-funded research project that examines
the historical and social significance of Aboriginal art produced in
Catholic churches during the Christian mission era in northern
Australia, using two sets of important works produced during the
contact phase, banners at Balgo (WA) in 1981 and panels at Wadeye
(NT) in 1957/8. The project will determine ways to assess, and
develop methodologies for best research of, and care for this art.

The candidate will be responsible for linking the archival research
and interviews with the conservation program, and in consultation
with Partner Organisations, developing appropriate education and
training programs.

We invite applications from candidates interested in pursuing a PhD
on the topic of 'Best practice in conservation programs for remote
Aboriginal communities'.

Please see the Call for Applications for further details:


and note that the deadline for applications is Friday 6 September
2013. For details on the Centre for Cultural Materials Conservation
