Full Time Marie Curie Early Stage Researcher Position in the fields of real-time Computer Graphics, Computer Vision and HCI for Cultural Heritage
Applications are invited from candidates who possess the necessary qualifications in order to fill one (1) full time Marie Curie Early Stage Researcher Fellow Position within the Institute of Computer Science at the Foundation for Research and Technology Hellas (FORTH) in the fields of Computer Graphics, Computer Vision and Human Computer Interaction (HCI) for Cultural Heritage:
The selected Marie Curie Early Stage Researcher (ESR) will work within the ITN-Digital Cultural Heritage (ITN-DCH) Marie Curie ITN Programme for 30 months. ITN- DCH is a major EU funded programme which brings together fourteen (14) leading European partners in a transnational network, aiming at implementing a multidisciplinary and intersectorial research and training programme between the academic and the industrial project partners. The Early stage researcher will perform research in the areas of mobile mixed reality, real-time computer graphics and interactive virtual characters.
Cultural Heritage (CH) is an integral element of Europe and vital for the creation of a common European identity and one of the greatest assets for steering Europe’s social, economic development and job creation. However, the current research training activities in CH are fragmented and mostly design to be of a single-discipline, failing to cover the whole lifecycle of Digital Cultural Heritage (DCH) research, which is by nature a multi- disciplinary and intersectorial research agenda. ITN-DCH aims for the first time worldwide that top universities, research centers, industries and CH stakeholders, end-users and standardized bodies will collaborate to train the next generation of researchers in DCH. The project aims to analyze, design, research, develop and validate an innovative multi-disciplinary and intersectoral research training framework that covers the whole lifecycle of digital CH research for a cost–effective preservation, documentation, protection and presentation of CH. ITN-DCH targets innovations that covers all aspects of CH ranging from tangible (books, newspapers, images, drawings, manuscripts, uniforms, maps, artifacts, archaeological sites, monuments) to intangible content (e.g., music, performing arts, folklore, theatrical performances) and their inter-relationships. The project aims to boost the added value of CH assets by re-using them in real application environments (protection of CH, education, tourism industry, advertising, fashion, films, music, publishing, video games and TV) through research on (i) new personalized, interactive, mixed and augmented reality enabled e- services, (ii) new recommendations in data acquisition, (iii) new forms of representations (3D/4D) of both tangible /intangible assets and (iv) interoperable metadata forms that allow easy data exchange and archiving. One Early-Stage Researcher (ESR) will be recruited by the host organization of the Foundation of Research and Technology Hellas, Institute of Computer Science, Heraklion, Crete, Greece (FORTH).
