The Chester Beatty is pleased to offer a twelve-month internship in conservation. The scheme is co-funded by the Heritage Council and the generous support of the Chester Beatty’s Patrons. The internship offers the possibility of professional workplace experience within a prestigious institution.
The successful candidate will gain experience working in the busy Conservation Laboratory. He/She will work under the supervision of the Conservation Team. Practical projects will be assigned to fit in with the museum’s on-going treatment, exhibition and loan programmes and include the preparation of manuscripts and single folios for digitisation from across the collections.
If you are a recent graduate (2017-19) of a recognised book and/or paper conservation training programme and you are interested in joining the CBL conservation team then further information and details on how to apply are available to download via this pdf:
