For many years, The Ramesses III (KV 11) Publication and Conservation Project has been involved in the excavation, scientific study, and conservation of the tomb of Pharaoh Ramesses III located in the UNESCO World Heritage Site Valley of the Kings (modern-day Luxor, Egypt). The aim of the project is to preserve the cultural assets, eventually making them fully accessible to the public again. To this end, an international and interdisciplinary team is working on the preservation of the rear area of the tomb, which has been severely affected by water damage.
For the 2024 season, we are looking for 2nd semester conservation/restoration science students who would like to complete a several-week-long internship in Egypt (Luxor), to help in the conservation of KV 11. Appropriate technical training is desirable, but not necessary. Those interested in this opportunity are asked to send the following documents in German or English by September 30th, 2023:
- Certificates and testimonials/letters of recommendation
- Letter of motivation (max. 2 pages, Arial, single line spacing)
The internship will not only offer valuable conservation experience and training, but also participation in an Egyptian-German field school, where knowledge exchange with Egyptian students of conservation sciences will be possible. The work will be led by Dr. Anke Weber (project and field director) and Prof. Dr. Mansour el Nouby (Luxor University).
Costs for flights, transport, accommodation, and meals will be covered by the project through funding from the Gerda Henkel Foundation. The internship is unpaid and there is no provision for remuneration for the interns, but a certificate will be issued at the end of the participation period, which certifies qualifications in the field work in all areas performed.
Successful applicants will be invited to a virtual interview in October and informed of their participation in the project by October 31st, 2023. Various documents will then be requested for the Egyptian security documentation process in order to give participants access to the closed part of KV 11. This includes scans of current passports (valid for at least 1.5 years), passport photos, and CVs in English and Arabic. If the candidates are suitable, a longer-term cooperation can be promised for the future.
