Advanced Paper Conservation Fellowship
Intermuseum Conservation Association

The Intermuseum Conservation Association (ICA) is offering one
advanced one-year fellowship in paper conservation.  This internship
is supported by ICA's Mellon Conservation Training Grant Endowment
funds and has a flexible starting date.  The fellow will have the
opportunity to work with ICA conservation staff on a wide variety of
paper based materials including historical documents, maps, and
contemporary art from the collections of the Association's 32 member
institutions as well as varied not-for-profit public institutions,
private and corporate clients.  Duties include in-lab and on-site
examinations, treatments, and collection surveys as well as writing
reports and cost estimates and interacting with clients.  Research
projects are supported and encouraged.

The ICA is located in a newly renovated historic building on the
near West Side of downtown Cleveland.  The facility's spacious
state-of-the-art workspaces and equipment allow staff to perform a
wide range of conservation and preservation services.  ICA's
Cleveland location provides convenient access to the cultural
resources of the city such as The Cleveland Museum of Art, Case
Western Reserve University, The Cleveland Institute of Art, and the
Cleveland Public Library. This is an exciting time for all involved
and is a great opportunity for the growth of the organization as
well as professional growth for staff and interns.  For more
