Leverhulme Trust Fully Funded Studentship

July 19, 2017

Fellowship

University of Glasgow College of Arts, United Kingdom

Location of fellowship:Lieu du bourse : Glasgow, UK

Description :
From the Golden Age to the Digital Age: Modelling and Monitoring Historic Tapestries
Leverhulme Trust Fully Funded Studentship

We are recruiting a highly motivated PhD student to take part in an exciting interdisciplinary project between the Centre for Textile Conservation and Technical Art History and the School of Engineering at the University of Glasgow, funded by the Leverhulme Trust with additional funding from the Textile Conservation Foundation and the University of Glasgow.

Start Date: It is hoped that the three-year studentship will start in September/October 2017.

Funding: The Leverhulme Trust Scholarship will cover

– home tuition fees for UK and EU applicants

– and will provide maintenance costs for three years at 14,553 GBP per year.

This studentship is open to international, home and EU applicants, but will only cover tuition fees to the home & EU level.

Project context: Many rich collections of tapestries survive and are displayed in museums and historic houses but they are often in poor condition and in need of extensive conservation treatment. The selection of tapestry support and display techniques is still largely based on experience and intuition. This study will enable conservators, curators and conservation scientists to base decisions in a more complete understanding of material properties when treating these complex objects, using computational modelling and strain monitoring techniques to gain data on tapestry properties and behaviour. The project offers exciting opportunities to work on site in a world-class museum environment at the Burrell Collection, and at one of Scotland?s most popular historic sites, Stirling Castle. The project has already started and initial results look very exciting. Continue reading…
