IPI is seeking a 12-15 month intern to assist in developing content
for an online print identification resource, Graphics Atlas,


The internship will begin in spring/summer 2014, 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.

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 March 1, 2014

Applicants must submit a resume, cover letter, and three references
(names and contact information only).  Please email application
materials to Alice Carver-Kubik <ackpph<-a t->rit< . >edu>.
