The Department of Heritage is seeking to fill a full-time (100%) vacancy for a doctoral scholarship holder in the area of image analysis for painting conservation.
- You prepare a doctoral thesis in the field of deformation behaviour of paintings, based on experimental research and image analysis of 4D datasets.
- Your main task concerning image analysis consists of looking for optimised methods to process and analyse 4D CT-datasets, including the application of innovative reconstruction algorithms.
- The experimental work consists of designing and executing tests in which the deformation of painting samples is measured under the influence of the interaction with moisture, eg. using micro-CT or other radiographic or microscopic techniques, possibly in combination with dilatometry.
- You publish scientific articles related to the research project of the assignment.
Profile and requirements
- You hold a master degree in science, engineering, heritage conservation or another relevant academic discipline. Students in the final year of their degree can also apply.
- You have experience in image processing and analysis and you are motivated to explore and investigate problems of painting conservation, OR you have a strong background in conservation of paintings and you are motivated to develop your skills in digital image analysis and CT techniques.
- You can submit outstanding academic results.
- Your academic qualities comply with the requirements stipulated in the university's policy.
