The Image Permanence Institute (IPI), a recognized leader in the
development and deployment of sustainable practices for the
preservation of images and cultural property, is seeking a
Preservation Environment Specialist to join their staff.  Candidates
should have experience in the field of preservation and a strong
interest in preventive conservation, managing the environment for
preservation, and sustainable energy practices. Presentation,
writing, and project management skills are required. Knowledge of
mechanical system operation and/or research methods is very
desirable.

The Preservation Environment Specialist will work with IPI staff to
provide information on best practices in managing the storage
environment in collecting institutions. The job requires on- and
off-site consultation, development and presentation of workshops,
seminars, webinars, and conference presentations on IPI's
environmental projects, the role of mechanical systems in providing
an appropriate storage environment, and balancing sustainable energy
practices with collection preservation. The candidate must have the
ability to prepare articles on these subjects for both peer-reviewed
journals and practical educational publications. Potential research
activities include the design and implementation of scientific
experiments, evaluation and analysis of resulting data, and
preparation of reports.

Candidates should have an advanced degree or equivalent experience
in Library Science, Archives Management, Museum Studies,
Conservation, Material Science, or Engineering. Five years relevant
experience in the museum, library, archive, or conservation field
focused on collection care and preservation is preferred. This
position involves frequent travel both nationally and
internationally.
