The Museum of Cultural History, University of Oslo, (KHM), and the University of Nottingham, are inviting applicants for a two year position as postdoctoral research fellowship in the project "Virtual Reconstruction, Interpretation and Preservation of the Oseberg Textiles" (TexRec). We are looking for an applicant who is attracted by developing new, bio-inspired materials for preservation of archaeological textiles. The postdoctoral fellow will develop bio-inspired/biomimetic materials to consolidate the fragile fibers. The focus would be on cellulose-based materials. This may include cellulose and its derivatives, chitosan, aminocelluloses, nanocellulose and other relevant materials. The developed materials are expected to be applied to textile objects in other collections, too.
