Smithsonian 12-month Postgraduate Fellowships in Conservation

The Smithsonian's Office of Fellowships and Internships has
announced one-year fellowships for recent graduates of masters
programs in art and archaeological conservation or the equivalent or
for conservation scientists, including those at the postdoctoral
level, to conduct research and gain further training in Smithsonian
conservation laboratories for conservation of objects in museum
collections. The fellowship begins in the fall of 2014. A stipend of
$35,000 is being offered plus a research allowance up to $2,000. The
prospective fellow must first contact the conservator or scientist
with whom he or she would like to work. If the potential supervisor
confirms that candidacy is suitable, application must be made
through the Office of Fellowships and Internships by January 15,
2014. Program guidelines, instructions, cover sheets, and letters
for your referees are available at

As one of the conservation laboratories in which a fellowship is
offered, the Smithsonian's Museum Conservation Institute (MCI)
offers postings for treatment and research projects benefiting
Smithsonian collections that make use of MCI's excellent analytical
capabilities
