Applications are being sought for a SEAHA fully-funded studentship: An optimised system for Multispectral Imaging of Documentary Material

This exciting cross-disciplinary project focuses on the multispectral imaging of documents to enhance the reading of lost text, corrections and watermarks. The project aims to develop standards for capturing and processing multispectral imaging in libraries, archives, galleries and museums; these standards do not currently exist. The student will work with conservators, archivists and industry specialists. The project will be supervised jointly by UCL Medical Physics and Biomedical Engineering and UCL Centre for Digital Humanities, R B Toth Associates, British Library and London Metropolitan Archives.

The project is part of the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Science and Engineering in Arts, Heritage and Archaeology.

More details of the studentship and how to apply are available here. The application deadline is midnight on 1 April 2015.
