Fundamentals, Methods and Applications of State-of-the-Art Diagnostic Tools Using Optical, X-Ray and Particle Probes
This PhD Academy, which will be held on November 6-10, 2023 at the Venice International University, aims at providing a comprehensive overview of state-of-the-art analytical methodologies and diagnostic tools currently used within the heritage science domain, with a focus on pioneering methods exploiting optical, X-rays, lasers and particle probes (i.e., electrons, muons, protons, neutrons) generated by novel and/or conventional devices and accelerators along with their more recent applications to different kinds of heritage items (e.g. papyri, fossils, metals, glass, ceramics, manuscripts, paintings).
This PhD Academy will be led by:
To this aim, the PhD Academy will draw together experienced and emerging scholars from both hard sciences (e.g., physics, chemistry, engineering, material sciences, computer science…) and arts and humanities (archaeology, art history, art conservation and restoration). The program will also include a parallel training program in a range of Transversal Skills for developing participants’ academic careers and poster sessions to present their research projects.
This international PhD Academy is offered to PhD students, post-docs, and junior researchers with a background in material sciences, physics, chemistry, biology, geology, engineering, computer science, heritage science, archaeology, palaeontology, art history, art conservation and restoration. Open to candidates from all the VIU Member Institutions; applications from excellent candidates from non-member institutions will also be considered and evaluated.
