Provides advanced analytical support and scientific research and analysis toward the improvement of the Museum’s understanding, methods, and strategies to prevent degradation of collections due to environmental factors. This work will be performed in the Preventive Conservation Science Laboratory under the supervision of the Environmental Research Scientist. Environmental factors include but are not limited to the off-gassing of materials used to store, display, or transport collections, pollutants, temperature, humidity, particulates, vibration, and light. Initial focus will be to improve the field’s methods for establishing whether display, storage, and transport materials are acceptable for use near art collections using advanced analytical liquid and gas phase chromatographic technics such as gas chromatography mass spectrometry and ion chromatography. In addition, x-ray diffraction, x-ray fluorescence, infrared, and UV-visible spectroscopy will be utilized.
