The J. Paul Getty Museum seeks to inspire curiosity about, and enjoyment and understanding of, the visual arts by collecting, conserving, exhibiting, and interpreting works of art of outstanding quality and historical importance and is one of four programs of the J. Paul Getty Trust. The Museum operates two sites, the Getty Villa in Malibu, which exhibits its collection of Greek and Roman antiquities, and the Getty Center in Brentwood, which displays its collections of European art: Medieval and Renaissance illuminated manuscripts, paintings, sculpture, decorative arts, drawings to 1900, and photography to the present day (including non-European works). The Museum mounts approximately 25 temporary exhibitions a year across its two sites; maintains an annual permanent gallery improvement program and offers wide-ranging and ambitious programming for its visitors.
The J. Paul Getty Museum seeks a qualified Associate Conservator to join the Department of Antiquities Conservation located at the Getty Villa. The ideal candidate will have a background in archaeological conservation and in the technical study of works of art, as well as experience in exhibition conservation and installation. A demonstrated knowledge of ancient materials and technologies and a desire to conduct technical research will be an asset. Preference will be given to candidates who are proficient using portable analytical equipment, 3D scanners, and laser cleaning, and who have a keen interest in following innovations in conservation science and their applications. A collegial and engaged team member, the Associate Conservator will work closely with other Getty Villa conservators and mount makers, as well as with curators and other Museum staff across two campuses. The Associate Conservator will take part in implementing the Museum's exhibition program, special conservation projects, and the ongoing study, maintenance and treatment of the permanent collection.
