The Getty Conservation Institute (GCI), works internationally to advance conservation practice in the visual arts, broadly interpreted to include objects, collections, architecture, and sites. It serves the conservation community through scientific research, education and training, model field projects, and the broad dissemination of the results of both its own work and the work of others in the field.
The GCI is pleased to announce a new employment opportunity for emerging conservation professionals: GCI Professional Fellowships. Made possible through onetime funding, the GCI is making available three Professional Fellowships, each of three-year duration, from June 2017 to May 2020. The successful candidates will work at the Getty Center in Los Angeles, California.

Professional development will be encouraged and assisted through participation in professional meetings, conferences, or workshops. Fellows’ research outcomes will be disseminated through publications and conference presentations.
