A Doctoral Research Fellowship (SKO 1017) in Conservation/Conservation Science is available at the Department of Archaeology, Conservation and History, University of Oslo.
The applicant is asked to propose a project under the heading: “Imaging-based documentation and analysis for change monitoring of novel dry-cleaning restoration/conservation methods for unvarnished paintings”. The proposed project should focus on the study of dirt and soot removal from unvarnished oil paintings on canvas, specifically those by Edvard Munch (1863-1944). The candidate is to develop representative paint mock-ups for documentation and novel cleaning tests, and to perform relevant accelerated aging and testing followed by documentation. Main supervisor will be Professor Tine Frøysaker, University of Oslo.
Co-supervisors will be Professor Jon Yngve Hardeberg, NTNU, and Assistant Professor Edith Joseph, Hes-so – Haute Ecole Spécialisée de Suisse occidentale.
