The application for a 2 years post-doc position is open at the University of Perugia in the research group of Chemistry for Cultural Heritage.
Research grant title: Study of the transformation mechanisms of materials used in the figurative arts
Specific functions and research tasks assigned: Synthesis and characterization of inorganic pigments, preparation of pictorial reproductions, accelerated aging of materials in controlled conditions, the study of the chemical-physical transformations induced with aging through molecular spectroscopic techniques (IR, Raman, UV-VIS-NIR point and mapping/imaging,) and analytical techniques based on X-rays from traditional sources and synchrotron radiation (XRD, XRF, XANES etc.). The fellow will use the knowledge acquired by participating in diagnostic campaigns in the activities of the IPERION-HS project.
Skills required in the scientific-professional CV: Good knowledge of at least one of the IR, Raman and UV-VIS-NIR spectroscopy techniques and of their use in the study of solid samples, with the ability to interpret the obtained spectral information. Any experience in analytical X-ray-based methods produced by traditional sources and/or synchrotron radiation will be positively evaluated.
Titles required: PhD or master’s degree+ at least 3 years of experience in Chemistry, Material Sciences, Physics, Heritage Science
Duration: 1+1 years
Net Salary per month: 1492 euro (gross salary per year: 25000 euro)
Deadline: December 11, 2023
