Fellowship at Walters Art Museum

Date: Thursday, January 23, 2014
Andrew W. Mellon Advanced Training Fellowship in Paintings
The Walters Art Museum

The Walters Art Museum is offering an exciting opportunity to an
emerging professional conservator to work in a very active museum
laboratory that focuses on preventive collections care, treatment,
research and public outreach.  This is an Andrew W. Mellon advanced
training fellowship in paintings conservation to begin fall, 2014.
The fellowship is for one-year, but may be renewed for a second

The Walters is a dynamic museum with collections from around the
world including late medieval to early 20th century paintings from
the East and West on a variety of supports.  The Conservation and
Technical Research Division staff members work collaboratively
across all divisions of the museum and are committed to professional
activities both nationally and internationally.  The Fellow will be
encouraged to also play an active role in a broad range of
professional activities.

Generally the Fellow will work 50% of his/her time on the museum's
programmatic priorities, including activities relating to
exhibitions, installations, loans and preventive care of the
permanent collections, as well as public outreach through the
museum's popular public "Conservation Window."  The remaining time
the Fellow will focus on a research project, culminating in a
publishable paper.

The selected candidate will receive a stipend of $42,000 including
funds for travel/research, plus health insurance coverage.
Candidates should be graduates of a recognized conservation training
program or have equivalent experience.  Applications, including a
letter of interest, current resume, and two letters of
recommendation, should be sent to jobs<-a t->thewalters< . >org.

Deadline for applications is February 28, 2014.

An EOE/A drug, alcohol and drug-free environment.
