Postgraduate Internship in Object Conservation
Peabody Museum
Harvard University

The Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology is offering a
one-year postgraduate internship in object conservation beginning in
September 2001.  The position provides opportunity to work with the
museum's extensive material culture collections.  The intern will
focus on the study, documentation, and treatment of objects and
textiles for in-house exhibitions, loans, collection-specific
condition assessments, and for selected research priorities.
Independent study and research will be strongly encouraged and
supported through University resources and travel assistance.  There
will be opportunities to participate and collaborate with
anthropology department and museum staff members in the
implementation of museum-wide preservation initiatives.

The internship includes a stipend of $20,000 for the year, with
University benefits and health insurance, and a $3,000 travel and
analytical research supplement.  Candidates should be recent
graduates of recognized conservation training programs with
appropriate specialization, or have equivalent experience.  (E-mail
inquiries only; applications materials by mail).  Application
deadline is April 18, 2001.  Harvard University is an equal
opportunity employer committed to diversity.

Interested candidates should send a letter of interest, curriculum
vitae, official academic transcript of graduate courses, and
reference letters from three conservation professionals to:
