Fellowships in Scientific Research and Conservation at The Met

The Metropolitan Museum of Art welcomes applications from scholars of the history of art and visual culture, archaeology, conservation and related sciences, as well as those in other disciplines whose projects relate to objects in The Met’s collection. The tremendous diversity of fellows' projects reflects the historic and geographic diversity of the Museum's collection. The community of fellows becomes immersed in the intellectual life of the Museum and takes part in a robust program of colloquia, roundtable seminars, research-sharing workshops, behind-the-scenes tours of exhibitions, conversations with Museum staff, and visits to the curatorial and conservation departments. Fellows form long-lasting professional relationships as they discuss research questions, look closely at objects, and share the experience of living in New York City.

Conservation Fellowships and Scientific Research Fellowships 2020-2021

There are two types of Conservation Fellowships: junior and senior. Junior fellows work closely with Met staff to receive training in scientific research and conservation practices. Senior fellows work on a specific research project that makes use of the Museum's collection and/or resources.

Recent master's graduates, PhD candidates, postdoctoral scholars, and senior scientists and researchers are eligible to apply. We encourage applications from those with a background in, but not limited to, conservation, conservation science, chemistry/physical chemistry, botany, and earth sciences/geology.

The application deadline date is December 6, 2019 for all application materials including letters of recommendation.

Research Scholarship in Photograph Conservation 2020-2022

The Research Scholar in Photograph Conservation works on-site in the Sherman Fairchild Center for Works on Paper and Photograph Conservation. The Research Scholar conducts a research project based on the Museum's resources and its collections of photographs, in addition to participating in the preservation- and exhibition-related activities of the Photograph Conservation lab.

The Research Scholar is expected to have a graduate degree in conservation or equivalent experience and should be completely committed to the conservation of photographs as his or her area of specialization.

The application deadline date is December 6, 2019 for all application materials including letters of recommendation.
