We will also be working on a major longterm and ongoing historic

archival materials and custom fabrication of housing and boxes.

Applicants must either be currently enrolled in a program leading to
a diploma or degree in a conservation or relevant museum collections
care field, have completed appropriate studies within the past three
years, or are 'Pre-Program' applicants pursuing a graduate
conservation program, but need to accrue the needed 800-1200 hours
of experience prior to applying--in which case this is a great place
to accumulate some of those 100's requisite hours.  Many of our
previous interns have gone on to have wonderful successes in this
highly competitive field.

Applicants may send letter of interest and CV by May 5, 2014.
