By DOCOMOMO Belgium / December, 19, 2016 / 0 comments

The Getty Conservation Institute (GCI), works internationally to advance conservation practice in the visual arts, broadly interpreted to include objects, collections, architecture, and sites. It serves the conservation community through scientific research, education and training, model field projects, and the broad dissemination of the results of both its own work and the work of others in the field.

The GCI is pleased to announce a new employment opportunity for emerging conservation professionals: GCI Professional Fellowships. Made possible through onetime funding, the GCI is making available three Professional Fellowships, each of three year duration, from June 2017 to May 2020. The successful candidates will work at the Getty Center in Los Angeles, California.

The GCI Professional Fellowships are designed to provide emerging practitioners with in-depth opportunities to build and strengthen their skills and experience as conservation professionals, while working under the guidance of experienced GCI staff.
GCI Professional Fellows will participate in the ongoing work of the GCI as full members of the Getty’s professional community. Professional development will be encouraged and assisted through participation in professional meetings, conferences, or workshops.
Fellows’ research outcomes will be disseminated through publications and conference presentations.

One of the Fellowships is available in the GCI’s Conserving Modern Architecture Initiative (Job# 2016-2885). The fellow will work closely with architects, engineers, conservators and scientists as an integral part of this GCI initiative to advance the practice of conserving twentieth-century heritage, with a focus on modern architecture.

CMAI is organized around five areas of work that respond to critical conservation challenges as identified by the GCI during the first phase of the work: engaging with and supporting the profession; model field projects; historical, methodological and scientific research; production and dissemination of key texts and resources; and education and training.

Applications are accepted via the Getty’s Job Opportunities site. Please consult the link above to read full position description and requirements and to submit an application and supporting materials.

Candidates will be selected on a competitive basis. An excellent benefits package and salary commensurate with qualifications and experience will be provided.

Completed application materials must be received on or before January 31, 2017.
