RESEARCH PROJECT ASSISTANT: 3D COLOUR LASER SCANNING
UCL Museums and Collections have recently been awarded a grant from the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) to develop a conference and research workshops investigating the potential uses of 3D Laser scanning technologies in the contexts of museum object research, interpretation, exhibition and education.
We are seeking an enthusiastic project assistant to help us organise, run and develop the workshop, practical sessions and the conference. The post will involve liaising with key stakeholders, workshop participants and the relevant academic and museum communities. In addition the project assistant will play an active role in collating information disseminating from the various workshops with a view to summarising the main outcomes in an edited publication.

The aim of this project is to bring together museum conservators, educators, scientists and curators and other professionals interested in this technology and the implications across the heritage sector who are interested in exploring the value of using this technology to benefit museum workers, visitors and educators.
Although scanning technologies have been used in museums and in scientific and archaeological practices these events will explore the uses and advantages of using scanning techniques from reviewing the current range and uses of scanning in museums through to discussing the future implications for this technology with a stress on innovative and creative applications. The project will offer a workshop, some practical working groups and a conference exploring these themes.
