The Old York Historical Society welcomes applicants for its Perkins Fellowship. The 2017 fellowship will concentrate on the curatorial research of 3-dimensional objects under consideration for deaccession. The project will include inventory management, provenance research, collections record management in PastPerfect and a final report and presentation of findings. The fellowship pays a $3000 stipend for a commitment of no less than 15 hours per week, 200 hours in total. Schedule can be flexible, must be agreed upon in advance. Most work will be carried out at the organization’s collection storage facility in Kittery, Maine but may also include some hours at the museum and archives in York Village, Maine. Candidates should have prior museum and/or decorative arts experience, must be able to work independently, and should be proficient in Excel.  Familiarity with PastPerfect is helpful, but not required. Preference will be given to graduate and post-graduate students. To apply, please send a letter of interest and resume to collectionsmanager@oldyork.org. Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis until a candidate is selected.
