The Anatomical Division of NMHM is looking for volunteer(s) with experience in creating textured 3-D models using data from laser scans, CT, micro CT and photographs to assist the museum in developing digital images of pathological skeletal specimens for educational and research use.
The volunteer will work with museum staff to develop protocols and carry out all phases of work for 3-D digitization of skeletal specimens and ultimately produce a series of 3-D models using data from surface laser and CT scans. This work builds upon the initial phase of the museum's paleopathology and skeletal anatomy digitization project and will facilitate long-term planning for the project into the future in order to make this material available for the wider educational and research community. The volunteer will gain experience and exposure to the field of paleopathology by working with one of the world's largest skeletal pathology collections.
