The National Museum of American History, Smithsonian Institution,
offers a unique opportunity to work on a project of historic
significance. The Star-Spangled Banner, the flag that flew over Ft.
McHenry and inspired the National Anthem, is being conserved in a
custom-built lab, on view to the public. The final phase of the
project involves preparing the 30' by 34' textile for exhibition.
This is an opportunity to be  involved in the preservation program
for a national icon and educate the public about your profession.

Successful applicants will have a knowledge of and experience with
textile conservation practices, with an emphasis on woolen textiles.
Position requires the ability to work while lying
down/sitting/standing for extended periods. Also requires ability to
move up to 60 pounds of fabric and equipment, and the ability to

These are time-limited positions, not to exceed 4 months. The
Smithsonian is an Equal Opportunity employer.
