The Assistant Conservator will share in the wide variety of work

include a special grant-funded project to repair and conserve an
important series of 15th to 17th century records relating to the
Palatinate and Bishopric of Durham. These records are in a very
fragile state and will require paper, parchment and book
conservation, photographic recording and record keeping. There will

box making, other flat sheet paper repair, preventive rehousing,
environmental monitoring and exhibition mounting. Applicants should

conservation; training in binding and book conservation would be an
advantage. The post offers opportunities for those with experience,
or for newly qualified conservators wishing to extend their range of
skills; applications are welcomed from students qualifying this
