The Netherlands Institute for Conservation+Art+Science+ (NICAS) welcomes outstanding early career researchers working on the material aspects of cultural heritage with an open mind and a strong interest in interdisciplinary collaboration.
In the context of 'An International Research Infrastructure for Heritage Science', a multi-year program funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, six one-year positions are available for outstanding early career researchers working on the material aspects of cultural heritage who have an open mind and a strong interest in interdisciplinary collaboration.
The purpose of the Research Associates is to make a contribution to the development of an international research infrastructure for heritage science. This infrastructure should encourage dialogue about the study, presentation and preservation of cultural heritage and contribute to academic discourse about knowledge-based conservation and collection management strategies. It will thus strengthen the bonds between researchers working in museums, universities and heritage institutions worldwide.
