PhD studentship
2.5D and 3D Image Capture
University of West England (UWE)

The UWE Graduate School is offering a funded full-time PhD
studentship in 2.5D and 3D image capture and print in the cultural
heritage field: evaluation of current and developing technologies,
potential applications and practical workflows.

This is an AHRC funded Collaborative Doctoral Award (CDA) between
the Centre for Fine Print Research and the National Gallery in

The PhD student will examine this complex field by:

Identifying, simplifying and demonstrating how these new tools can
be efficiently and appropriately used in the day to day study,
documentation and presentation of cultural heritage objects,
concentrating particularly on issues and applications relevant to
the National Gallery and its collection.

This could include, for example, investigating what structural
changes occur in paintings over time, how they can be documented,
and how conservation treatments can affect these structural changes.

The student will determine the relevance of particular hardware and
software as well as establishing cost implications.

The PhD student will be based in Bristol, but will be working in
active collaboration with the National Gallery and will be expected
to undertake secondments to the National Gallery totalling around
six months over the three years of the project.
