The three PhDs are as follows:

AHRC funded CDP with the British Museum: “The conservation and interpretation of vitreous materials in museums collections – a non-invasive investigation”
Deadline 13th March
Details of the project and how to apply can be found in

AHRC funded CDP with the National Gallery: “Conservation varnishes at the National Gallery: studying their optical and material properties”
Deadline 13th March
Details of the project and how to apply can be found in

“Remote Laser spectroscopy at standoff distances”
Deadline 24th March
Unlike the previous two projects, international students can apply for this project. This is an instrumentation oriented project
Details of the project and how to apply can be found in

The deadlines for the following PhD studentships are fast approaching so be sure to apply soon.
