Olin Conservation, Inc., (OCI) headquartered in Great Falls, VA, is
contemplating a post graduate position to assist with current mural
and painting conservation projects in the DC area. The position will
be for six months (September 2012 - February 2013), with the
possibility of extension.

The anticipated work may include the following:

    In studio, structural treatment--canvas murals;

    On-site cleaning, structural work  and inpainting--canvas

    On site stabilization, filling and inpainting--fresco secco
    murals and numerous other projects including easel paintings.

The position, if awarded, will be as a Contract Laborer, with hourly
compensation based on experience and ability. Benefits are not
provided to Contract Laborers. Extension of the position is not
guaranteed, however, if extended, the position would evolve into
Employee status. OCI maintains Workers Compensation insurance
coverage on all staff, employees and contract laborers. Site work
requires PPE (protective equipment). Projects entail work from
scaffolding and involve non-typical apparatus. This will necessitate
knowledge of scaffolding and equipment, or a willingness to be
trained in safe operation. Certain projects require OSHA or other
types of specialized training.  Our work requires us to bring the
conservation lab to the site: Candidates with the ability to perform
detailed and objective conservation, who also possess the energy and
agility necessary for physically demanding site work, are likely to
excel. Applications are being accepted into July, 2012, with a
decision by August, 2012. Candidates will be asked to provide
resumes and references, and must be able to comply with Form I-9
