West Lake Conservators

supported by a computer network and office manager.   Flexible hours
and an informal atmosphere create an appealing work environment.

Applicants must be willing to work on a broad range of art and
artifacts, both independently and in a team approach.  Mural
treatments and surveys offer occasional opportunity to travel.
Independent research and contributions to our field are encouraged.
Assistance with education of the public and hosted professional
workshops is required.

equivalent knowledge and abilities.  Computer skills are essential.
Salary is commensurate with experience. Benefits include health
