Information Session: Friday, October 28th at 2pm EST – Register Now
There are two types of Conservation and Scientific Research Fellowships: junior and senior. Junior fellows are those applicants who have recently completed graduate-level training. They work closely with Met staff to receive training in scientific research and conservation practices. Senior fellows are well-established professionals with at least eight years of experience in the field and a proven publication record, or those who have their PhD in hand by the deadline date. They propose and work on a specific research project that makes use of the Museum’s collection and/or resources.
Recent master’s graduates, PhD candidates, postdoctoral scholars, and senior scientists and researchers are eligible to apply. We encourage applications from those with a background in, but not limited to, conservation, conservation science, chemistry/physical chemistry, botany, and earth sciences/geology.
The fellowship period is September 1 through August 31. All fellows must be in residence at The Met for the entire fellowship period. Junior fellows receive a stipend of $42,000. Senior fellows receive a stipend of $52,000. All fellows also receive an additional $6,000 for travel.
All applications, including letters of recommendation, must be received by Friday, December 2 at 5:00 p.m.
EST / 10:00 p.m. GMT.
