Monitoring of the surface appearance of daguerreotypes during their first tarnishing, electrolytic cleaning and possible re-tarnishing after treatment
A new, European Union funded PhD position at the University of Amsterdam is now open for applications. The focus of this research will not so much be the conservation of daguerreotypes, but rather developing and applying imaging techniques and data science to monitoring changes in the appearance of daguerreotypes (and other shiny metal surfaces).
This is a position within the EU-funded Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions, Initial Training Network project entitled ‘Cultural Heritage Analysis for New Generations’ (CHANGE). The PhD is supervised by Prof. Robert G. Erdmann (University of Amsterdam) and co-supervised by Dr Christian Degrigny (HES SO) and Martin Jürgens (Rijksmuseum).
