Post-Graduate Fellowship in Conservation of Photographs

The Amon Carter Museum of American Art is pleased to offer a two-year advanced training fellowship in the conservation of photographic materials beginning in the fall of 2012. Under the supervision of the Conservator of Photographs, the Fellow will participate in all departmental activities including examination, documentation, analysis, and treatment on the Carter’s extensive collection of photographs, and will contribute significantly to the institution’s program of exhibitions. In addition, the Fellow will conduct research on the collection and is expected to produce a formal paper before the end of the appointment based on research completed during the fellowship.

The Fellowship will provide excellent hands-on treatment experience and practice in conservation management for the museum’s collection. By participating in all the departmental activities, the Fellow will gain professional experience in the conservation of photographs while commencing a conservation career.

The Fellowship includes a competitive stipend with monthly study/research/housing allowance. Office hours will be scheduled Monday through Friday (no telecommuting).
