The Preservation Society of Charleston is seeking a paid spring intern who will work for three months developing a website that will serve as a central information resource in historic preservation and sustainability for Charleston and the lowcountry region. The internship is funded in part by the Post and Courier Foundation and is designed to implement recommendations of the 2008 City of Charleston Preservation Plan and the 2010 Charleston Green Committee’s Green Plan. General information about green preservation, as well as best practices, case studies and technical information will be brought together from various sources. The development of Charleston-specific content based on work that is being done by partner organizations will also be included in the site.

The intern should have completed graduate-level training in historic preservation, and have a strong interest in issues related to sustainability and architecture in a preservation context. Graphics and web-design skills will also be required. The intern will have an opportunity to present the project at the state historic preservation conference as well as at the Society’s membership meeting in May.

This is a paid internship from February 15th through May 13th, 2011. Total stipend for the three-month period will be $7,500.
