The Heritage Conservation Centre (HCC) <URL:>
of the National Heritage Board is looking for a Textile Conservator

The post will involve intensive practical work on a large variety of

can be negotiated. It is hoped that the candidate will be able to
take up the post by the beginning of November 2000. Salary will be
