Curator Internship at Colonial Williamburg

Interested in the field of material culture? The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation is offering several curatorial internships in 2013. Thanks to a generous grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, three 3-month and one  12-month internship will be available.

Selected interns will work directly with a Colonial Williamsburg curator and focus on a specific aspect of study in the fields of fine art, decorative art, folk art, architectural collections or archaeological collections. This year, we are accepting applications for 3-month positions in ceramics and glass, furniture, and 19th century toys; and a joint 12-month position in prints and maps/paintings and drawings.

Applicants should be enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate program in a related field and have completed at least two years of academic credit.

For more information on how to apply for a Mellon internship and for details surrounding the internship program, please visit Colonial Williamsburg’s website, www.history.org/foundation/careers or http://www.history.org/history/museums/museum_internships.cfm. Job postings will be listed under “current opportunities” as Intern A-Curatorial and/or Intern A-Curatorial (3 month position).

Applications will be accepted until 5pm, Friday, February 8, 2013. Candidates will be notified in early April.
