Internship at Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County

From: Tania Collas <tcollas>
Date: Friday, November 7, 2003
Conservation graduate student internship
Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County

A conservation graduate student internship is offered for the summer
of 2004 at the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County.  The
Natural History Museum boasts extensive, distinguished collections
in the fields of anthropology, botany, history, paleontology,
mineralogy, as well as most of the zoological disciplines.  Located
in Exposition Park, just south of the University of Southern
California, the Natural History Museum is close to a number of other
museums and cultural attractions.

The internship will focus on preventive conservation for special
groups of artifacts and specimens within the museum's archaeology,
ethnography, history, mineralogy, and zoological collections.
Conservation projects will include rehousing and treating artifacts
and specimens for their safe storage.  Aspects of the internship may
be tailored to fit with the intern's particular interests.  All work
will be carried out under the direct supervision of the conservator.

A modest salary and travel expenses will be provided for the intern
pending funding.  Note that full funding was secured for the
previous two summer internships.  Applicants must be graduate
students currently enrolled in a conservation degree program and
must be U.S. citizens or have U.S. residency.  Both first and second
year graduate students are invited to apply.

Please send a letter of interest, a CV, and two references no later
than December 31, 2003 to:

    Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County
