Rijksmuseum Amsterdam
1) PhD in Analytical Methodology Development for the Study of Oil Paintings
to develop new methodologies and strategies optimized for heterogeneous paint systems and minuscule paint samples. He/she will elaborate and push at their limits new analytical approaches based on synchrotron (UV/visible synchrotron spectroscopy and imaging, and tomographic analyses), nano-infrared and free-electron laser (FEL) to reveal micro- and nanoscale structure of aged oil paint systems.

2) PhD in Analytical and Organic Chemistry on Cleaning of Modern Oil Paintings
The PhD project will focus on powdery, underbound and delaminating modern oil paints. The degradation mechanisms involved will be investigated and the effect of novel polyfunctional nanomaterials on the chemical and physical condition of these sensitive paints will be assessed using well-defined model oil paint systems developed and synthesized by the candidate. These model systems will be chemically characterized before and after treatment with the novel nanomaterials. Potential analytical techniques for this study are 3D Optical Microscopy (Hirox), SEM/EDX, ATR-FTIR, Raman, OCT, AFM and various mass spectrometric techniques.

The emergence of public data generation can bring a paradigm shift to the field of heritage science. While visitors to museums, historic houses and sites engage with heritage, the increasing portability and availability of sensors might mean that they could also contribute to measurement, assessment and even chemical analysis of heritage materials, objects and sites. This offers an opportunity to monitor change and gather more information at greater rates and at a lower cost, while sharing heritage science with the public.

The project will provide a critical analysis of a previously overlooked and diffuse epistemic community of early 19th century scholars who saw geography as an international comparative project rooted in the humanities and polite learning. This perspective was promoted by, inter alia, John Britton, William Brockedon, William Huttmann, George Long, George Cecil Renouard, William Henry Smyth, Thomas Watts, and Henry Yule. From the perspective of these individuals, geography was naturally associated with antiquarianism, archaeology, the study of classical and ancient civilisations, the analysis and translation of classical, oriental and modern languages, and the investigation of religious beliefs.
