Due to a cancellation of a student, one internship place will be
offered between June and November 2015 for 1-6 weeks.  (Length and
period to be discussed after application)

Applicants should be a BA, MA or PhD student in conservation during
the internship as a contract needs to be signed between the
universities before the internship commences.

This internship is designed to introduce basic urushi work and
conservation of urushi objects, depending on current projects and
curriculum at the university.

The university has various analytical equipments such as electron
microscopes, soft X-Ray and X-Ray CT scanner for medical treatments
at the medical study department.

Although from the middle of July to 15 September 2015, the
university itself is on summer holiday, there will be several
workshops related to Japanese craft work and study tours which can
be participated in (related costs need to be paid by yourself).

Applicants need to fund themselves for travel to and from Japan, and
other necessary costs during the internship.

Applicants don't have to be fluent in Japanese.  There will be
students who can support you in English to a certain degree.

    The university accommodation will be available for free if it
    meets our terms and conditions.

    Basic tools such as urushi brushes and spatulas will be provided
    to the intern, which can be taken back home.
