Multimodal analytical imaging of Old Master Paintings: addressing the challenges of registration, mosaic construction and image resolution

The National Gallery, Scientific Department and the Imperial College London organiza a Collaborative Doctoral Partnership PhD studentship.
Applications are invited for a Collaborative Doctoral Partnership PhD studentship, to be undertaken at Imperial College London (Electrical and Electronic Engineering Department) and the National Gallery (Scientific Department). This studentship will be jointly supervised by Professor Pier Luigi Dragotti at Imperial College London (ICL) and Dr Catherine Higgitt at the National Gallery (NG). The studentship is for a three-year (full-time) project entitled ‘Multimodal analytical imaging of Old Master Paintings: addressing the challenges of registration, mosaic construction and image resolution’, to commence on 1 October 2019. The student may also apply to the Student Development Fund (see below) to allow a (remunerated) placement of up to 6 months duration at the National Gallery during the PhD to further develop and expand their skills. The student will spend concentrated periods of time both at Imperial College London and at the National Gallery. This is an exciting interdisciplinary project involving close collaboration between engineers with expertise in signal and image processing, conservation scientists, conservators and curators. The student will also have the opportunity to interact with researchers involved in an EPSRC-funded joint-research project between ICL, NG and University College London.

Interested applicants should contact the main supervisors Professor Pier Luigi Dragotti (p.dragotti@imperial.ac.uk) and Dr Catherine Higgitt (catherine.higgitt@ng-london.org.uk) ideally by 15th June 2019 and they should include in the email a covering letter and their CV.
