Mellon Fellowship in Paper Conservation
Art Institute of Chicago

The Art Institute of Chicago is offering an advanced training
fellowship in paper conservation beginning in the fall of 2014. The
Fellowship will be for one year, with the possibility of renewal for
a second and third year.

The Fellow will be involved in a wide range of conservation
activities including examination and treatment of works on paper
scheduled for loan, acquisition and exhibition. The diversity of the
Print and Drawing collections ranging from the 15th through 21st
century provide a rich resource for conservation education. The
Fellow will also participate in all daily activities of the
conservation department including environmental monitoring,
condition checks for incoming and outgoing objects and preventative
maintenance of the collection. The successful candidate will be
encouraged to focus on a research project that should culminate in a
published paper or professional presentation.

Candidates must have a Master's degree in art conservation and at
least one year of practical experience beyond graduation, or
equivalent experience. The Fellow will receive an annual salary of
$34,000 with an additional allowance of $3,500 for travel and
research, plus benefits including health, dental and vacation leave.

For consideration, please submit a cover letter summarizing your
interest, resume and three professional references to:
