The Philadelphia Museum of Art (PMA) invites applications for a two-year Andrew W. Mellon Foundation Postdoctoral Fellowship in Scientific Research, which begins September 2021 and ends August 2023. The fellowship will provide the opportunity to gain working knowledge of and proficiency in the scientific research and instrumental analysis of cultural heritage materials within a museum setting. During the first year, the Fellow will be introduced to the workings of the PMA, including those of the curatorial and conservation divisions. The Fellow will be incorporated into the daily activities of the Department and will receive instruction on the proper usage of core analytical instruments (FTIR, Py-GCMS, Raman, SEM-EDS/WDS, and XRF). In the second year, the Fellow will develop original research focused on the PMA’s collections culminating in work of publishable quality.
