Internship in paper conservation

From: Karen Potje <kpotje>
Date: Thursday, August 3, 2000
The Conservation/Preservation Department of the Canadian Centre for
Architecture (CCA), a museum and study centre devoted to the art of
architecture and its history, is pleased to announce a twelve-month
internship in paper conservation funded by the Getty Grant Program
(Los Angeles).

The intern will focus on two projects:

    1.  The intern will examine, document, and carry out the
        intensive conservation treatment of a large collection of
        19th-century architectural drawings. He/she will also
        participate in a comparative technical examination of the
        materials and techniques of the drawings.

    2.  The intern will take responsibility for the loan or
        exhibition of a body of objects from the modern era.  He/she
        will deal not only with the conservation and preservation
        issues but also with all conservation administration
        procedures for the loan or exhibition.

The intern will also take part in the day-to-day operations of the
Conservation Department and will be expected to participate in
professional activities such as conferences, workshops, and visits
to other institutions.

Candidates will be considered who are recent graduates (maximum
three years since graduation) of a recognized training program.
Knowledge of both English and French are assets.

Applications for the internship should include the following

    *   Curriculum vitae;

    *   Three letters of recommendation from conservation
        professionals familiar with the applicant's work;

    *   Letter of application indicating applicant's interest and
        intent in applying for the internship.

Selection of candidates to be interviewed will be made by committee.
Candidates to be interviewed may be asked to submit a portfolio of
conservation projects.

The above material should be sent by October 1, 2000 to:

    Director, Human Resources
    Canadian Centre for Architecture,
    1920, rue Baile
    Montreal, Quebec H3H 2S6
