interest in teaching preventive conservation topics to
non-specialists.  Experience with CAP Assessments is a definite

independently plan and manage projects and to complete all needed
documentation.  The conservators also will identify and achieve new
initiatives and play a role in developing our overall program.

Our lab is located in the heart of the Twin Cities, between downtown
Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota.  NSCC was founded in 1997 to
give museums and private collectors greater access to conservation
resources.  Today, 500 institutional and private clients across the
country benefit from a facility that no single institution could
support.

Salary and benefits for these positions is commensurate with
experience. Interested candidates can mail, Fax: or e-mail a cover
letter including your salary requirements, CV, three professional
references and up to five work samples to include treatment reports,
survey reports and/or training curricula to:
