Paper conservation internship
The Denison University Museum
Granville, OH

The Denison University Museum in Granville, OH seeks a paper
conservation intern for a summer project working on the prints and
drawings collection.  The collection consists of over 1000 items,
primarily 19th and 20th century American and European prints and
drawings by artists such as Winslow Homer, Rockwell Kent, Honore
Daumier and Pablo Picasso.

The summer project is part of a large project to stabilize and
rehouse the above collection.  The intern will carry out
documentation and minor treatment (i.e. hinge and tape removal,
surface cleaning, and remounting) on the items.   The intern will
have the opportunity to assist and oversee the work of Denison
undergraduate students who will also be working on the project.
Along with the stabilization and rehousing project, the intern may
also be able to participate in other conservation treatment

The intern will work with the Museum's Curator of Collections, with
appropriate training and supervision by paper conservators from the
Intermuseum Conservation Association,


a regional, non-profit art conservation center in Cleveland, Ohio.
The internship will be for 12 weeks and a stipend of $4,340 and
housing will be provided. The internship should start in mid-May,
but is flexible.

Candidates should have experience with paper conservation, through a
recognized conservation graduate program or other related
experience. Current and recent students of the programs are
encouraged to apply. Candidates must be eligible to work in the U.S.
Deadline for application is Feb. 29, 2008; a decision will be made
in early March. Interested candidates should mail or fax a resume,
cover letter, and list of three references to:
