Archaeological Conservation Summer Internships
Deadline December 15, 2016

The Agora Excavations Conservation Laboratory of the American School of Classical Studies at Athens is offering 2-3 Archaeological Conservation Internships for the 2017 summer excavation season. The Conservation Laboratory functions as an integral part of the American School of Classical Studies at Athens' Agora Excavations. Its aim is to support the excavations by providing services that contribute to the study and understanding of the site.

Under the supervision and guidance of the Agora Conservation staff, interns will carry out general conservation duties including: examination and analysis of artifacts; documentation; cleaning; reconstruction; restoration; and photography of artifacts from the current excavation and from storage. In this way, students will be able to work with a variety of materials including ceramics, stone, glass, copper alloys, iron, lead, bone and occasionally ivory and wood. An introduction to the re-treatment, preventive and long-term care of archaeological collections will also be provided.

Applicants must currently be enrolled in a graduate or equivalent conservation program or they must have recently completed their studies in conservation. All successful candidates are responsible for their travel arrangements to and from Athens, Greece and are required to obtain their own medical insurance for the duration of their internship. Housing and a modest stipend are provided for each intern during their internship.

Applicants will complete an online application. The online application form can be accessed through the following link:
