Smithsonian 12-month Postgraduate Fellowships in
Conservation of Museum Collections

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)
to conduct research and gain further training in Smithsonian
conservation laboratories for conservation of museum collections.
Researchers in conservation science topics, including those at the
postdoctoral level, are also encouraged to apply.  The fellowship
begins in the fall of 2015.  A stipend of $37,700 is being offered
at the postgraduate level and $48,000 at the postdoctoral level,
plus a research allowance up to $4,000.  While 12-month fellowship
proposals are preferred, applications for projects of shorter
duration (between 3-12 months) are acceptable, with a commensurate
reduction to the stipend amounts. 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 December 1, 2014.

Program guidelines and instructions for application 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
