University of Lincoln
Research students in Conservation Science work in multidisciplinary teams, often with archaeologists, historians and museum curators adding their chemical expertise to help address materials degradation using fundamental scientific approaches. Innovative analytical approaches and research chemistry are used to discover the complex reaction mechanisms that accompany the degradation of buildings. You will engage in the work of the Historical and Ancient Materials Research Group which is currently involved in collaborative projects with major organisations including the Royal Botanic Gardens (Kew), the Natural History Museum and the National Museum of Wales. You will have access to a range of training programmes to support you in your independent investigations and an impressive array of techniques for elemental, molecular and materials analysis, including facilities for controlled ageing and forced degradation of materials.
A minimum 2.1 in a relevant degree.
Example research areas include: materials degradation; chemical speciation of ancient and historical artefacts; in-situ measurement; stabilisation and de-toxification of museum; collections.
