"FILMER SA RECHERCHE" Date limite: 10 mars 2014
Le Festival du Film de Chercheur est organisé par le CNRS et l’Université de Lorraine.
Le concours « Filmer sa recherche » se fonde sur la philosophie du Festival qui est la suivante : «
Faire connaître et comprendre la démarche du chercheur »
Mettre en avant et faire connaître les films qui montrent les personnels des laboratoires dans le
quotidien de leur recherche. La spécificité du Festival du Film de Chercheur est donc de présenter la
science en train de se faire, en privilégiant les aspects humains et les impacts sociétaux de cette
création. Ce Festival se préoccupe des films qui ont un lien direct avec la recherche et les chercheurs qu’ils soient les réalisateurs, les
producteurs ou les partenaires dans les opérations de production/réalisation.

Conservation Research Scientist for Yale Art Conservation Research Center (USA)
In its continuing effort to support the conservation of cultural property through scientific research and innovation, the Art Conservation
Research Center (ACRC), a part of the Center for Conservation and Preservation at Yale’s West Campus, seeks a full-time scientist to perform
research into the effects of light on museum, library, and archival materials. The research will primarily involve the use and further development
of the micro-fading technique pioneered at the ACRC. The development would include evaluating the limitations of the technique and
establishing protocols for its application to photographic print materials and manuscript inks. Other investigations would explore the chemistry
of light-induced color changes and the dark chemistry of light-sensitive residues in photographic prints. These investigations could become
collaborations with other scientists at Yale, other universities, and museum laboratories. In addition to this laboratory research, this position
will utilize the micro-fading tester to provide diagnostic services, examining Yale collection objects for their vulnerability to light damage. This
position reports to the Director of the Art Conservation Research Center.
