Dear All,

Apologies for cross posting

The DART project has advertised 3 funded PhD opportunities on their website:
addition to jobs.ac.uk and FindAPhD

DART is a 3 year multidisciplinary research project looking at how to
improve heritage remote sensing. It will do this be increasing the
understanding of the dynamic interaction between soils, vegetation and
archaeological residues and how these affect detection with sensing devices.
This requires understanding how the archaeology differs from, and
dynamically interacts with, the localised soils and vegetation and how these
differences can be detected. Data fusion techniques will be utilised to
determine the factors that lead to contrast detection, the impact these
factors will have on the sensor spectrum and the nature of any contrast
dynamics. This knowledge will be distilled into domain ontologies which will
become the core reasoning framework for decision support tools. The 3 PhD
studentships offer a fantastic opportunity to work on a multi-disciplinary
project combining industry and governmental organisations and researchers
from archaeology, soil science, remote sensing and computer science.

We would be grateful if you could pass these details over to students,
colleagues or other relevant institutions and networks. A flyer is available
which can be posted on your institutional noticeboard

Best wishes and many thanks


Lidka: could you please forward via AARG. Thanks Ant
