The Getty Conservation Institute’s Postdoctoral Fellowship in Conservation Science is a two-year program designed to provide recent PhDs in chemistry or the physical sciences experience in the GCI’s Museum Research Laboratory. The postdoctoral fellow will be an integral part of the MRL and will work closely with conservators and curators to address questions of authenticity, provenance and artists’ technique, as well as assist in the evaluation of conservation treatment programs, and conduct research on the properties and behavior of materials found in works of art. Applications are welcome from scientists of all nationalities who are interested in pursuing a career in conservation science and have received a PhD in chemistry/physical science. The successful candidate will have a record of scientific accomplishment combined with a strong interest in the visual arts.
Applications are typically due in November. Visit funder website for more information.
