Dear colleague,

Applications are invited from candidates who possess the necessary
qualifications in order to fill one (1) full time Marie S. Curie Early
Stage Researcher (ESR) Fellow Position in the newly established UNESCO
Chair on Digital Cultural Heritage / Digital Heritage Research Lab of
the Cyprus University of Technology (CUT -
https://www.digitalheritagelab.eu/) in the research field of *Enrichment
of 3D volumetric objects with Metadata and Semantics in Cultural
Heritage*: The selected Marie S. Curie ESR will work for thirty six (36)
months within the H2020 Initial Training Network CHANGE Marie S. Curie
ITN Project (http://change-itn.eu/), an EU-funded programme bringing
together eight (8) leading European Institutions as full beneficiaries
and ten (10) other as partners in a transnational network, aiming at
implementing a multidisciplinary and intersectorial research and
training programme between academic, research and the industrial partners.


Cultural Heritage (CH) is an integral element of Europe, 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 designed as single-discipline, failing to cover the whole
lifecycle of Digital Cultural Heritage (DCH) research, which is by
nature a multi-disciplinary and intersectorial agenda. The CHANGE
project will train a new generation of early stage researchers towards a
common goal, namely the assessment of changes in tangible cultural
heritage objects and their monitoring in the atmosphere and/or during
their conservation treatment, using multimodal imaging techniques to
complement more traditional analytical techniques. Their research will
consist in optimising capture of data and their analysis, visualisation
and management, to ensure a better documentation and long-term
preservation of our common European cultural heritage. This work will be
carried out within an interdisciplinary environment involving five (5)
CH and four (4) ICT *beneficiary institutions* as well as nine (9) CH,
ICT and industrial *partners *from eight (8) EU countries.

For more details about the fellowship, such as salary, other benefits
and how to submit an application, please see the attachment to this email.

Thanks in advance for forwarding this email in your networks and
email-lists, as well as sharing the call on your Social Media.
