Gallery and Stoke Potteries Museum are seeking expressions of
interest for conservation professional placements who wish to take
advantage of a unique professional development opportunity through
contributing to the conservation of the Staffordshire Hoard.

Conservation professionals with specific skills sets in the
conservation of metalwork, archaeological conservation and
Anglo-Saxon metalwork are being sought to work with the Hoard
conservation team.

It is hoped that the invited conservator will be able to inform and
enhance the conservation work. They will work with the conservation
team to help expand their conservation knowledge on specific aspects
of the conservation, construction and historical information.  The
invited conservator will also be expected to carry out written and
photographic documentation and practical conservation work.

An aim of the project is to engage with the public and participants
may asked to contribute to ongoing public engagement activity.

The Hoard conservation project is able to cover travel,
accommodation and subsistence.The closing date for receipt of
completed applications is March 31, 2013
