Call for Expression of interest for one position of Scientist or Engineer in the IESL Photonics group for Heritage Science

Position Description

We are seeking one Scientist (Physics, Maths, Computer Sciences) or Engineer, MSc holder or higher, in spectral imaging, data acquisition and processing, with background in RTD projects. The candidate will participate in the R&D activities of FORTH-IESL in the context of PERCEIVE project “Perceptive Enhanced Realities of Colored collEctions through artificial Intelligence and Virtual Experiences” funded under HORIZON-CL2-2021-HERITAGE-01-04, and will work on Hyperspectral imaging data acquisition and processing related aspects. 


Role and Responsibilities

Responsibly carrying out activities related to the PERCEIVE collaborative research project. Namely:

  • Research into VIS/NIR hyperspectral imaging data processing.
  • Instrumental setup, data acquisition, processing, analysis and interpretation.
  • Design and management of a digital services platform.
  • Optimisation of data workflows in the entire data life cycle from capturing, processing, analyzing (including semantics), interlinking data to assure the quality of services.
  • Dissemination of achievements in international journals and conferences.

In parallel, to be involved in research and service activities related to the application of Hyperspectral imaging to the documentation and characterization of artworks and archaeological objects.
