Based at The Historic Scotland Conservation Centre, currently at
South Gyle, Edinburgh, you will play an important part in the
'Preventive Conservation and Science' Unit (PCS), to develop a high
quality scientifically based research and advisory service in
support of wide-ranging research activities. You will primarily be
involved in conducting research into the traditional materials used
in Scotland's built heritage stock, the performance and decay of
traditional buildings and the factors that cause material
deterioration. You will also explore remedial actions that can aid
conservation. You will play a major part in the development of an
in-house service and a network of external collaborative partners.
Your research will inform scientists, conservators, practitioners
and home-owners of best methods to maintain traditionally
constructed buildings. Travel throughout Scotland will be required.

You should have a higher degree in a scientific discipline related
to building materials or conservation and the knowledge and skills
to carry out research and analysis in material decay processes. You
should be able to address a range of audiences and issues, and
demonstrate experience of building and promoting collaborative
research projects. Experience of X-ray diffraction, FT-IR or Raman
Spectroscopy would be an advantage. You should have good
communication skills, discretion and the ability to work without
supervision, as well as part of a team.
