Research Fellow in maritime cultural heritage:
Under the guidance of Dr Wesley Flannery you will be joining a team of 8 others working on coastal heritage governance issues. Specifically, you will contribute to the exciting PERICLES project comprising a strong interdisciplinary consortium across seven European states encompassing over 15 different disciplines.
Cultural heritage is at risk through diverse drivers, such as climate change, non-cultural heritage sensitive economic and spatial development (e.g. mass tourism), and demographic change (e.g. decline and aging in rural areas and lack of recruitment to sectors important to coastal and maritime cultural heritage such as inshore fisheries).
This project aims to develop effective mitigation options to ensure cultural heritage preservation by mapping, characterising and assessing the risks facing cultural heritage.
