The University of Virginia Library seeks a thoughtful and talented candidate for a nine month Graduate Conservation Fellowship at the University of Virginia Library. The Fellowship is made possible by a generous grant from the Kress Foundation.
The Graduate Fellow will work primarily with special collections materials from the Albert and Shirley Small Special Collections Library, developing conservation treatment proposals, executing the approved treatment plan and maintaining documentation throughout. Given the UVA Library’s academic mission, the items prioritized for conservation treatment will support the instruction and outreach activities of the Library and treatment will facilitate access for research and classroom use. The Graduate Fellow will report to the Senior Book Conservator for UVA Library but will collaborate with other library staff as appropriate.
The salary from the grant is $32,000. The successful candidate will receive an additional $9,000 from the University Library, since benefits are not included.
