Logo Metropolitan Museum of Art

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. As part of a collaboration with Rutgers University, the Research Associate will have access to advanced mass spectrometry equipment at Rutgers University. Primary responsibilities & duties: Collaborates with Scientist in Charge and Associate Research Scientist to plan NICS research work; Conducts analyses by techniques such as GCMS, MALDI, LCMS, Raman, FTIR, and others as appropriate, to investigate works of art in collaboration with NICS partners.
