Internship at Missouri Historical Society

From: Linda Landry <llandry>
Date: Monday, November 27, 2006
Summer Conservation Internship 2007
Missouri Historical Society,
St. Louis, MO

The Missouri Historical Society is seeking applications from
graduate-level conservation students for the Williams summer
internship in the Department of Conservation. The internship period
is eight (8) weeks. The stipend is $3,000 for eight weeks,
approximately 35 hours per week.

The conservation intern will assist the Objects Conservator in
preparing a range of objects for upcoming exhibitions including an
exhibit on the Disability Movement, an exhibit on Colonial French,
Spanish, and English presence in St. Louis, and an exhibit of the
Katherine Dunham dance and theater collection. Conservation projects
will include surveying objects slated for display, preparing exhibit
recommendations, and conducting conservation treatments.

The internship is open to students who have yet to decide on an area
of specialization, and also to those who may have established an
area of interest in general objects or ethnographic conservation.
This is a perfect opportunity for conservation students to gain
excellent practical experience in a fast-paced and intense history
museum setting. Start and completion dates are flexible.
Applications will be accepted after January 3, 2007 and until
February 15, 2007. An announcement of selection will be made by
March 15, 2007. Citizenship Requirements: Open to U.S. residents.
