The Smithsonian Institution’s Museum Conservation Institute (MCI) is currently accepting applications for a variety of internship positions.

Among these is a position for a student with graduate-level experience/training in archives, records, and information management and an interest in materials science or conservation to assist with the organization of MCI’s Mecklenburg Materials Archive. The candidate will review the research notes, correspondence, publication drafts, and other documentary and library materials related to the Archive and to assist in determining an appropriate inventory and cataloguing protocol for the organization of these materials.

In addition, MCI is offering a variety of other short-term internship opportunities to work on research and conservation projects with staff members. The internships are for the 2015 summer term, but consideration will be given to projects at other times during the year.  The MCI prefers applicants currently enrolled in conservation training programs or graduate students in related subjects.
