The Hesburgh Libraries, University of Notre Dame, welcomes

emerging conservation professional to build and apply the skills,
experience, and confidence necessary to address conservation needs
in a research library context.  Working with the Libraries'
conservator and other library staff, the Fellow will address
conservation treatment needs of the Libraries' rare books and
special collections


The Fellow will perform treatment, including examination,
decision-making and documentation; will gain experience interacting
with curators on treatment selection and prioritization; and will
engage in other activities suitable to the individual's skills and
learning objectives.  The Fellow is encouraged to pursue research
and may dedicate up to 20% of work time to research and other
contributions to the profession.

The ten-month Fellowship is supported by a stipend of $36,500.
Additional benefits include health insurance, paid holiday and
vacation leave, and $1,500 support for conference participation
and/or research.  The Fellowship is generously supported by the
Samuel H. Kress Foundation, administered by the Foundation of the
American Institute of Conservation.

The Fellowship is limited to graduates of graduate conservation
programs in the U.S. and Canada, or to U.S. citizens graduating from
graduate-level conservation programs abroad.  Qualifications include
a strong knowledge of the history, manufacture, and chemistry of
books and paper; understanding of conservation ethics and
preservation theory; excellent hand skills and attention to detail;
demonstrated written and oral communication skills; effective
interpersonal and team collaboration skills; and the ability to
