4yr PhD studentship in 3D Mass Digitization/Metadata for Cutural Heritage

PhD studentship opportunity: Mass digitization and metadata enrichment of 3D cultural heritage artefacts by automatic and user-based metadata acquisition

Applications are invited for a four year fully-funded PhD studentship within EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Science and Engineering in Arts, Heritage and Archaeology (SEAHA – . The studentship comprises a one-year MRes based at UCL, London, followed by three years PhD study at the University of Brighton, in collaboration with the Fraunhofer Institute for Computer Graphics Research (Darmstadt, Germany) and the Brighton Royal Pavilion and Museums. The project will look at the state-of-the-art ‘conveyor belt’ approach to high fidelity 3D digitization of complex cultural artefacts. Effective management and exploration of collections depends on the acquisition not just of the artefacts themselves, but also of semantic metadata, providing annotation of, and linkage between, acquired assets in the collection. This PhD project aims to explore the potential for the application of mass digitization technology in cultural heritage organisations, and to develop tools and techniques for the enrichment of collections with metadata by automatic and user-based acquisition.

Application deadline: open until filled, for Sep 22 start on MRes at UCL.
