In the context of An International Research Infrastructure for Heritage Science, a multi-year program funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation at the Netherlands Institute for Conservation+Art+Science+ (NICAS), six one-year positions are available for outstanding early-career researchers working on the material aspects of cultural heritage who have an open mind and a strong interest in interdisciplinary collaboration.

The purpose of the Research Associates is to make a contribution to the development of an international research infrastructure for heritage science. This infrastructure should encourage dialogue about the study, presentation, and preservation of cultural heritage and contribute to the academic discourse about knowledge-based conservation and collection management strategies. It will thus strengthen the bonds between researchers working in museums, universities and heritage institutions worldwide. The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation enables candidates to research and draft a Road Map for Heritage Science in the object categories of Book, paper and photographic materials; Contemporary Art; Glass, ceramics, stone, metals (objects); Painting; Textiles; Wood and Furniture.
