Senior Conservation Scientist: conservation of modern materials (Canadian Conservation Institute)

logo CCI

Further recent consultations about issues related to modern collections re-affirmed that plastics are of top concern to clients. As a response, CCI is opening a senior conservation scientist position to help lead its efforts in the conservation of modern materials. This position will identify strategic issues related to synthetic polymers (and potentially other materials found prevalently in modern/contemporary cultural heritage) and will develop and lead new research projects in response to these issues. This position will provide expert advice and services and will deal with complex inquiries or requests from external or internal clients to provide authoritative scientific expertise, interpretation and results based on research and testing. This position will communicate concepts, ideas and research results to national and international client groups, scientists, conservators, other heritage professionals and non-technical individuals through written reports and publications or oral communications.
