programme of internships to teach and extend core skills in the
cultural heritage sector. Following the success of our first two
internships earlier this year, we are now offering one conservation
internship to provide essential experience for those hoping to
undertake further study to qualify as a conservator. This internship
is available for 10 weeks full-time from May to July 2013. A stipend
of UKP3,000 is attached to the internship.

This is an exciting opportunity to work on unique material in the
University of Edinburgh Archive


in particular to preserve a newly accessioned and important
collection of material relating to the significant Scottish
folklorist, poet, writer and political activist Hamish Henderson.
Wider experience of working in the archive and higher education
sectors will also be offered.

This internship is specifically intended for those who intend to
apply for a relevant conservation qualification. To apply for the
internship, please provide the following:
