In 2015 the Whitney Museum of American Art will be moving into a new
building that will also house its Conservation Center and a newly

the museum has created a full time position for a paper conservator

have a demonstrated interest in the preservation of modern and
contemporary American art and a familiarity with the theoretical and
practical issues associated with that expertise.  The ability to
work independently and efficiently, write cogently, communicate
effectively, manage a busy schedule, and assume collegial leadership
is required as well as an advanced degree in Conservation and at
minimum two years of relevant experience.  The resultant title and
salary will be commensurate with the candidate's credentials and

Applicants should send a letter of interest stating educational and
professional qualifications as well as aspects of relevant work
experience and documented research.  The application should include
the contact information of three references but letters are not
required.  Candidates who are invited for an interview will be asked
for further material at that time.  Applications should be sent to
hr<-a t->whitney< . >org and will be accepted until November 1, 2014.
