Internship Opportunities

Conservation in progress

Sharing our knowledge of glass conservation is an important aspect of the Museum’s mission. Our conservation team regularly presents their research and experiences at conservation conferences and to the general public. We also lecture at colleges and universities, including graduate-level conservation training programs, and regularly teach workshops for conservators already in the field.

In addition, we often have conservation interns in the lab. Most of our interns are international and come from conservation training programs that allow students to specialize in specific materials, like glass (or glass and ceramics). Because our internships are treatment focused, we only accept graduate or post-graduate interns with some experience treating glass objects. Internships generally last about three months, but can be longer or shorter depending on individual circumstances.
