PhD Chemistry: Multifunctional magnetic nanocomposites for artefact conservation
You will contribute to a Leverhulme funded project on Multifunctional Magnetic Nanocomposites for Artefact Conservation. Based in Dr Serena Corr’s Functional Nanomaterials group, this project is in close collaboration with Dr Eleanor Schofield at the Mary Rose trust and Professor Rachel O’Reilly at the University of Warwick. You will work on the preparation and functionalization of magnetic nanoparticles which will form the core of a nanocomposite treatment agent to remove harmful chemicals from wooden artefacts recovered from the Mary Rose hull. You will be trained in all aspects of nanoparticle synthesis and surface functionalisation. You will work closely with a postdoctoral researcher also working on this project to fully characterise your materials and their effect on wooden samples taken from the Mary Rose. You will liaise frequently with other project partners and make visits to their labs.
