may be of interest to recipients of this list:

The effectiveness of different stone consolidants for the
conservation of stone buildings.
Director of Studies: Dr D. Halsey

Overview:  An important method for conserving our built heritage is
the application of various products to consolidate deteriorated
stone masonry. The success of these treatments depends on several
factors and is often hard to predict.  This project examines the
effectiveness of various consolidants with special reference to the
physical properties of the stone and the influence of temperature
and moisture conditions.

Applicants should have a minimum of an upper second degree in a
science or engineering discipline.  Knowledge of building
conservation, statistics and computing skills would be an advantage.

The studentships attract an annual bursary of 5,500 pounds sterling
payable quarterly in advance. There may also be opportunity for
students to undertake paid tutorial / lecture work where
appropriate.  Research students are expected to register for, and
actively pursue a MPhil / PhD--all fees are paid for by BERU in this

Closing date for Applications is Wednesday 15 April 1998. For full
