Applications are now being accepted for the 2015–17 Postdoctoral Fellowship in Conservation Science, a two-year program designed to provide experience in conservation science to recent PhD recipients in chemistry and the physical sciences. The 2015–17 Postdoctoral Fellow will be an integral team member in GCI Science's newly formed Treatment Studies research area, working also with colleagues in related research areas, such as Materials Characterization.
Applicants should have a recent PhD (2010 or later) in chemistry, polymer science, or another relevant physical science; experimental research experience; and strong instrumental analysis skills. An aptitude for self-directed learning and for working across academic disciplines is desirable, as are good written and verbal communication skills.
Candidates should have an interest in the visual arts and a serious interest in pursuing a career in conservation science within the museum environment.
Application materials and the full terms of the postdoctoral program are available on the Getty Foundation website. Completed application materials are accepted online only. The deadline for receipt is November 17, 2014.
