Internships at Dorset Archives Service

Dorset Archives Service

Dorset Archives Service expects to be advertising soon for at least
one, and probably two full-time, eighteen month conservation
internship posts. The work will be a mixture of paper and parchment
treatments on material from the sixteenth century to the present.
Training for the posts will be provided, within a framework designed
to assist conservators working towards eventual accreditation.
Additional relevant external training and CPD opportunities will
sought as they arise.

The posts will depend on finalising financial support from external
sources and should become available by September 2000.  The
Preservation Services Division within Dorset Archives consists of a
state-of-the-art conservation laboratory, with automated diagnostic
recording and reporting systems, and a fully equipped modern
reprographics unit with microfilming, film processing and digital
copying facilities.  The interns will gain experience in the work of
all sections of the Division.

If you have just completed a relevant conservation degree or higher
diploma, or have appropriate experience, and are interested in
receiving further information about the vacancies, please send your
name, address and contact details, preferably with a short
description of your qualifications and experience, to:
