Internship

Internee at workThe advanced practical and theoretical internship in the conservation of easel paintings is tenable for one year in the first instance, though interns may be invited to extend the internship for a further second year.

Applicants should be recent graduates from a recognised easel paintings conservation training programme.

The internships are designed to allow concentration on practical studio work, but with opportunities for research work, depending on current projects at the Institute.

The internships are funded, and internees receive a maintenance grant. 

Terms at the Hamilton Kerr Institute are up to 15 weeks long and interns are required to attend the Institute during term time between 0900-1700 Monday to Friday every other week and 0900-1700 Monday to Thursday on alternate weeks.
