One Ph.D. Position in Chemistry on Protection of Ancient Manuscript


CCHT-IIT funds one scholarship for a Ph.D. position available in the Joint PhD Program in Chemistry of the Università Ca’ Foscari – Venezia  and Università degli Studi di Trieste. The joint research aims at developing protective materials for Cultural Heritage preservation. The position holder will focus on Ancient Manuscripts: degradation assessment for the development of protective coatings (C/11).The recipient of the scholarship will develop the project under the supervision of the Center Coordinator, Arianna Traviglia, in Venice, together with a supervisor at the Department of Molecular Sciences and Nanosystems of the Università Ca’ Foscari Venezia.

In details, the research program will focus on the study of ancient manuscripts, intended as composite objects made of paper, inks and additional constituents such as metals, wood and leather. The PhD student will analyse manuscripts by means of several non-invasive techniques in order to clarify their conservation status and degradation mechanisms and develop adequate solutions for their protection.
