Founded in 1973, NEDCC is the first independent conservation
laboratory in the United States to specialize exclusively in the
conservation and preservation of paper-based collections.  NEDCC has
a combined staff of 40 colleagues in the departments of paper,
photograph and book conservation, imaging and audio preservation and
preservation services.  These departments work jointly to provide
professional services for all paper based artifacts including works
of fine art, photographic materials, manuscript documents, maps,
architectural plans, books and non-paper based materials such as
parchment and papyri.  NEDCC also offers conservation expertise for
surveys, workshops, educational programs, publications, and Web
tools on preservation to help institutions and private collectors to
improve their collections care programs.  Professional training and
development of conservators is promoted at NEDCC by providing
advanced internships and grant funded Fellowships while also
supporting continuing education opportunities for its own
conservation staff.

Essential functions: The Assistant Paper Conservator will be
responsible for the treatment of a wide variety of artifacts: art on

historically valuable objects while working efficiently to maintain

benefits package is included.  The applicant must be legally
