Depends a lot on who you're working for and what shows are coming up! You'll probably be going to the Clark's research library frequently, so you'll have an awesome opportunity to learn a lot about the theme of whatever shows might be coming up. You potentially may be asked to help with miscellaneous organizational, administrative, or writing tasks (e.g. wall labels, Excel spreadsheets, correspondence, etc.). While these may not seem as interesting as research, they are really good ways to better understand all the small tasks and huge amount of effort that goes into putting on a museum exhibition.
