This US-Dutch IRES project will provide international and highly interdisciplinary research experiences to three cohorts of 4 graduate and 1 undergraduate students who will travel to Amsterdam to conduct research in cultural heritage science at the Atelier Building and its associated partner institutions (the University of Amsterdam, the Delft University of Technology, the Rijksmuseum (RMA), the scientific research department of the Cultural Heritage Agency of The Netherlands (RCE) and the Netherlands Forensic Institute (NFI)) addressing three grand challenges at the interface of science and art. Collaborations with scientists at major US Museums such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the National Gallery in Washington DC, the Art Institute of Chicago and the Winterthur Museum and Garden will provide a broad interdisciplinary focus to the STEM cohort of students and an attractive set of questions related to important works of art. The partnership with CUNY and recruiting and advertising opportunities with professional societies such as the National Organization for the Professional Advancement of Black Chemists and Chemical Engineers (NOBCChE); the Society for Advancement of Chicanos/Hispanics and Native Americans in Science (SACNAS); as well as the American Institute for Conservation will extend these research opportunities to a diverse range of early-career scientists.
