Studentship at University of Leeds and British Museum

PhD Studentship: Breaking the cycle of self-destruction: developing
remedial conservation treatments for iron-tannate dyed museum objects

Extended deadline for application: 31 July 2013

Applications are invited for a fully funded AHRC Collaborative
Doctoral Partnership PhD studentship, to be undertaken at the
University of Leeds (School of Design) and the British Museum
(Department of Conservation and Scientific Research).


This project endeavours to develop and adapt chemical stabilisation
methods into practical conservation treatments which could
effectively halt the autocatalytic deterioration by arresting the
metal ion redox cycle using antioxidants and deacidification agents.

The full stipend is available to UK students or EU students who have
lived in the UK for 3 years prior to the award. Other Overseas
students may also be eligible if they fulfil a range of residency
requirements stipulated on the AHRC guidance.


For informal enquiries, please contact Chris Carr
<c.carr<-at->leeds<.>ac<.>uk>, Richard Blackburn <ccdrsb<-at->leeds<.>ac<.>uk> and
Marei Hacke <mhacke<-at->thebritishmuseum<.>ac<.>uk>.

Application is by Curriculum Vitae and covering letter including a
statement concerning the applicant's eligibility for this
studentship and contact details for two referees. Applications
should be submitted to designphd<-at->leeds<.>ac<.>uk
