The Maryland Archaeological Conservation Laboratory (MAC Lab) is
offering a twelve month internship in archaeological object
conservation from September 2003 to August 2004.  This is the second
of two internships supported by a grant from the Institute of Museum

Maryland Department of Housing and Community Development, and is the
State's central repository for all archaeological collections.  The
intern will work with the Chief and Lead Conservators on collection
assessments, object examination and treatment, environmental
monitoring, photo and x-ray documentation, materials ID and

waste management, and data base use.  Objects in the collections
come from terrestrial and marine excavations covering Maryland's
9,000 year history. The intern will be required to present a paper
at the Washington Conservation Guild annual student presentations.

Applicants will be accepted for the following:

    *   Experience in conservation before beginning a formal
        conservation training course, or

    *   Required practical experience to complete a conservation
        degree, or

        from terrestrial and marine sites.
