[MCN-L] Great #musetech opportunity for graduate students

2019-10-09 Thread Greg Albers
Hello all,

Every year the Getty offers a couple dozen paid internships for current or 
recent graduate students across many of our programs and departments. 
Applications for the 2020–2021 season are now open. I wanted to highlight the 
seven below which offer the chance to do leading edge work in some of the 
foundational areas of museum technology, and with some of the sector’s best 
people. :)

To graduate students, I hope you’ll consider applying. And to graduate program 
professors, I hope you’ll consider passing these on to your students and 
colleagues. Full information on the internships and application process can be 
found at https://www.getty.edu/foundation/initiatives/current/gradinterns/. 
Deadline is November 1.


2020–21 Getty Graduate Internships:

Digital and Print Publications (Getty Publications)
As the publisher serving all Getty programs, Getty Publications produces 30-35 
print titles per year and an increasing number of web-based open access 
publications. This internship will provide in-depth experience in the creation, 
distribution, and marketing of digital publications as well as grounding in the 
traditional editorial functions involved in art publishing. Our intern will 
work closely with the Digital Publications Manager and editorial staff and will 
collaborate with colleagues across the Getty Trust, including the Museum, 
Conservation Institute, and Research Institute. Typical projects range from 
exhibition and collection catalogues to scholarly books on art conservation and 
history; duties include the coordination of assets and metadata, copyediting 
and manuscript preparation, project coordination, image rights clearances, and 
user testing. The position also provides exposure to trends in the museum and 
publishing technology fields, including user-centered design, the digital 
humanities, and open source software development. Candidates should be 
organized, detail-oriented, and have strong written and verbal communication 

Collection Management Systems (Getty Digital)
The intern in Collection Management Systems will gain intensive experience with 
preserving the Getty’s unique collections and assets in digital format, which 
include archives of artists, galleries and art historians and audio/video 
artworks and documentation as well as websites, institutional born-digital 
records, and research data. The intern’s primary responsibilities will likely 
include troubleshooting and testing workflows for getting content of all types 
into a managed system, and researching future options for video reformatting, 
with other projects assigned according to the intern’s particular skills and 
interests. Specific tasks may include developing preservation plans for file 
characterization, migration and normalization, assessing technical metadata for 
digital assets, and participating in the drafting of policies and procedures 
related to digital preservation.

Cultural Heritage Data Management (Getty Digital)
The intern will gain a thorough knowledge of the institution’s work by 
creating, extracting, transforming, enhancing and publishing our knowledge to 
enable research and the development of end-user applications. The primary 
responsibilities are to assist with the automation of processing content into 
Linked Open Data, to assist the community in the transformation of their data 
in the same way, knowledge extraction from textual content such as materials or 
provenance statements, reconciliation of names, and integration of the results 
into collection management systems including Arches, ArchivesSpace, or TMS. 
Candidates must have at least rudimentary understanding of the Python 
programming language or the willingness to transfer existing knowledge. 
Learning opportunities include data engineering, linked open data, machine 
learning, natural language processing, cultural heritage data management. 
Networking opportunities include working with partner museums around the world, 
engaging with systems vendors, and participating with international data 

Collection Information & Access (Getty Museum)
MUST <3 DATA. The Collection Information & Access (CI) department aims to 
expand access to and enhance understanding of the Museum's art collection by 
managing, safeguarding and disseminating documentary, interpretive, and 
administrative information about the Museum's art collection and its care. This 
internship will introduce the intern to all aspects of the collection data 
workflow--from inception as it enters our systems to public presentations--and 
provide opportunities for hands-on experience collaborating on projects with 
our team and colleagues around the Getty. Areas of work may include: data 
analysis and reconciliation; data integrity management; data transformation; 
administration/support of The Museum System (TMS), our collection management 
software; data visualization and statistical reporting. Projects will be
