The Smithsonian Institution's Freer Gallery of Art and Arthur M.
Sackler Gallery, the national museum of Asian Art for the United
States, is offering internships in the field of Chinese painting
conservation.  The intern will receive training in traditional
Chinese painting conservation working under the guidance of
specialists in the Department of Conservation and Scientific
Research.  Training may entail any of a number of aspects of
treatment, such as dying and preparing repair papers, applying
backing papers and patches, repairing creases, and studying mounting
styles and methods. While candidates with no prior experience in
East Asian painting conservation will be considered, the candidates
must have knowledge of the ethical and professional principles that
apply to the conservation of works of art and demonstrate a
commitment to a career in conservation.

Applications for internships of three to six months in length will
be accepted.  A starting date for the internship period may be
proposed for any time within the twelve months following the
application deadline date.  Interns will receive a stipend of $2,000
per month plus some funding for travel expenses to and from
Washington, D.C.  This internship is made possible by a grant from
the Henry Luce Foundation.  For further information, call
202-357-4880, ext. 266, or send email to dcsr [at] asia__si__edu.

Application deadline: June 30, 2000.  Applications should include a
letter of interest, a curriculum vitae, the names and addresses of
three references, and be sent to the following address:
