Opportunities

SEAHA will support your career along three typical paths. We have started recruitment for our 2015/2016 studentships, please continue to check the website over the coming weeks for new opportunities. Information on how to apply can be found in the project adverts below. You may also wish to consider registering your interest by sending an email to the SEAHA Manager.

Current opportunities available to start in 2015:


‘Comparison of painting lining methods for historic house environments’

An excellent opportunity for a student wishing to develop skills in a range of mechanical and spectroscopic techniques, including digital image correlation, dynamic mechanical analysis, nuclear magnetic resonance and near infrared spectroscopy. This project will be jointly supervised by UCL Department of History of Art , UCL Institute for Sustainable Heritage, EH Collections Conservation Team and LaVision UK Ltd. Please click above for full details.

‘Spectrally dependent light sensitivity of modern materials’

This is an exciting project for candidates looking to build knowledge and skills in material and polymer science, illumination technologies, radiometry, photometry and colorimetry, as well as the conduct of colour appearance experiments with groups of observers and statistical analysis of experimental data. This project will be jointly supervised by the UCL Institute for Sustainable Heritage, UCL Department of Civil, Environmental and Geomatic Engineering, Philips Research and the V&A. Please click above for full details.

‘Extracting epidemiological data from collections’

This is an exceptionally exciting project for candidates looking to explore the potential of state-of-the-art digitisation, data capture and analysis, modelling and computational image analysis methods. This project will be jointly supervised by the UCL Institute for Sustainable Heritage, department of Civil, Environmental and Geomatic Engineering at UCL, The Getty Conservation Institute and English Heritage. Please click above for full details.

‘Strain modelling in historical tapestries’

This studentship will investigate cutting edge real-time in-situ tri-axial strain monitoring sensors to provide data to inform analytical modelling of tapestries using Finite Elements and explicit mathematical formulations together with modern Dynamic Equilibrium methods used in fabric simulations. The project will be jointly supervised by the UCL Department of Civil, Environmental & Geomatic Engineering , UCL Institute for Sustainable Heritage, Historic Royal Palaces and IBM T.J. Watson Research Center. Please click above for full details.

‘Hyperspectral imaging for heritage: From books to bricks’

This is an exciting project for candidates looking to build knowledge and skills in material science, spectroscopic techniques, product development (equipment and technique), and the use of non-standard software for visualising and interpreting hyperspectral data. The successful candidate will have a first or upper-second degree in engineering, material science, conservation science, chemistry, physics (or related aspects of science and/or engineering), and a keen interest in cultural heritage. Candidates with proven experience in the use of hyperspectral imaging in other fields may also be considered from disciplines such as geography, environment sciences, or astrophysics. This challenging interdisciplinary project will enable you to seek employment in any number of multidisciplinary environments: from academia to industry. Please click above for full details.
