Image Permanence Institute (IPI) is seeking a fifteen-month intern
to assist in developing content for an online print identification
resource, Graphics Atlas


The internship will begin between May 1, 2013 and June 1, 2013,
depending on availability of the selected applicant. The Graphics
Atlas internship is a paid position sponsored by a grant from The
Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, with a monthly stipend of $1200.

About IPI: The Image Permanence Institute is a recognized world
leader in the development and deployment of sustainable practices
for the preservation of images and cultural property. IPI
accomplishes this through a balanced program of research, education,
products and services that meet the needs of individuals, companies,
and institutions. IPI's Graphics Atlas is a sophisticated, online
print identification and characterization resource

The intern's primary responsibilities will be to conduct research on
photographic processes, history and technologies and to develop
written content for Graphics Atlas. The intern will also help
prepare outreach materials to extend the audience of the website.
The intern will gain thorough knowledge of documentation and imaging
techniques, the history and techniques of photographic processes,
types and mechanisms of deterioration associated with each process,
and will come away with a deep understanding of print identification
through hands-on interaction with IPI's prolific study collection,
library and microscopy facilities.

Qualifications/Skills: Bachelor's degree minimum education is
required. Applicants should be working towards or considering a
career in archives, library sciences, photograph conservation,
preservation, history, or related fields. Applicants should have
excellent research and writing skills, an interest in photographic
processes and technology, be self motivated and able to work
independently as well as collaboratively. Some knowledge of
photographic history and processes is preferred, but not required.

Application deadline is April 1, 2013. Applicants must submit a
resume, cover letter, and three references. Please email application
