The Metropolitan Museum of Art and its Department of Scientific Research (DSR) have established a pilot program, the Network Initiative for Conservation Science (NICS) that will advance research and scholarship in art history, archaeology, conservation, and science by sharing the Museum’s scientific instrumentation, expertise, and resources with a core group of partner institutions. The program will create a network of collaborating museums, most of which do not currently have widespread access to a state-of-the-art scientific research facility The Research Associate is a postdoctoral level scientist who conducts research in support of art historical and conservation studies under the supervision of the Associate Research Scientist. As part of a collaboration with Rutgers University, the Research Associate will have access to advanced mass spectrometry equipment at Rutgers University and will be jointly supervised by Professor Gene Hall, in the Department of Chemistry.
