Conservation Internship offered at National Archives

The National Archives, in conjunction with the Valuation Office and the Heritage Council, is offering a nine-month internship in paper conservation to a graduate in paper or archives conservation who graduated in 2013 or 2014.

The internship is intended to give valuable practical experience of work with archival collections, in this case a large (c11,00-item) collection of mid-19th century maps, which needs cleaning, consolidation and flattening in preparation for use by researchers. The intern will be employed by the Valuation Office and will work with an experienced conservator at the National Archives premises in Bishop Street, Dublin, over a 37-hour week from October.

Deadline for applications is 4 September.
