John Fell Fund Post-Doctoral Heritage Scientist

Historical & Philosophical Studies - UK Jobs

Job Details (corehr.com)

The Bodleian is seeking a John Fell Fund Post-doc Heritage Scientist to join the Conservation team at the Weston Library.  The Conservation and Collection Care department has 21 members of staff including book, paper and preventive conservators working to preserve, stabilize and improve access to the Bodleian Libraries’ collections through preventive activities, conservation treatments and research. The department also plays a significant role in supporting the ongoing programmes of digitization, exhibitions, public engagement and teaching.
The post will focus on the non-destructive, scientific analysis of selected Byzantine medieval illuminated manuscripts, and Japanese 17th and 18th centuries’ items, which are amongst Bodleian’s research priorities, aiming to solve questions about the adhesion problems presented by their painted media. Our goal is to gain deeper understanding of the chemical deterioration of the paints exhibiting adhesion and cracking issues, as well as their poor bond with the parchment and paper substrates on which they were applied. The characterisation of pigments used in these paints by instrumental analysis will inform our preservation methods to prolong the life of these and similar manuscripts, in particular, how to consolidate this media in a more efficient manner.
The Bodleian Libraries undertake a significant amount of scientific materials research on a yearly basis, since the start of our Heritage Science facility in 2013. Although this will not be the main focus of this post, we expect them to also carry out some analytical work in support of the research of our readers, academics, and University staff (Art History, English, Archaeology, Physics and Chemistry), using a number of instrumental methods such as hyperspectral imaging or Raman spectroscopy. For this area of their work, the Fell Fund post-doc’s will be working closely with Durham University’s “Team Pigment” (AHRC funded), whose main research purpose is to build a systematic study of pigment development by region and time, which is of prime importance for the Bodleian because of the large volume of ongoing research that focuses on our unique collections from this period, which are also directly linked to our Medieval and Renaissance collections. This work includes the use of high performance, portable spectroscopic instrumentation (Raman, X-Ray Diffraction).
This is a part-time, fixed-term position, working 22.5 hours per week for 12 months.
Oxford University offers generous pension schemes and annual leave entitlement, with an option to buy additional leave, family friendly benefits, and the University Club gym. We are able to offer a flexible working pattern, including the possibility of working both on site and remotely.
Our staff and students come from all over the world, and we proudly promote a friendly and inclusive culture. Diversity is positively encouraged, through diverse groups and champions, as well as a number of family-friendly policies, such as the right to apply for flexible working and support for staff returning from periods of extended absence, for example shared parental leave.
You will be required to upload your CV and a supporting statement as part of your online application. Your supporting statement should list each of the essential and desirable selection criteria, as listed in the job description, and explain how you meet each one. CV’s alone will not be considered.
Only applications received online by 12.00 midday (BST/GMT) on Monday 31 October 2022 can be considered. Interviews are expected to take place on Monday 21 November 2022.
