Curatorial Internship

We are pleased to launch our curatorial internship scheme, which is part-funded by the American Friends of the Arts in Ireland (AFAI). The objective of this new initiative is to offer practical museum training experience to a recent graduate or postgraduate interested in pursuing a career in the arts and museum sector. The programme will start by offering a short internship (part-time) of 4 months working with the Curator of Western Collections. The exact focus of the project will be dependent on the successful applicant’s academic background, professional skills and interests, however the intern will be expected to assist with the on-going cataloguing of the Library’s Western print collection.
