The British Museum is seeking a Mellon Foundation Postdoctoral Research Fellow to join the Scientific Research department. The main purpose of the role is to combine and analyse 3D datasets from X-ray CT scanning and multiband photogrammetry of ancient Egyptian animal mummies, enhancing their understanding and promoting effective storage and display. The Fellowship offers an exciting opportunity for an early career researcher with a doctorate in a science discipline (computational imaging or imaging science preferred) to apply non-invasive scientific imaging to ancient Egyptian animal mummies. The 3D datasets will help explore both the external appearance of the mummies and the remains lying within the wrappings and further our understanding of the fascinating link between humans and animals in ancient Egyptian society. A key aspect of this role will be the development of a computational approach to combining surface and volumetric 3D image datasets.
