1 Post Doc in Digital Humanities (or Geomatics). 3D Modelling of the
Undeciphered Aegean Inscriptions (Cretan Hieroglyphic, Linear A and
Cypro-Minoan): Image Acquisition and Creation of Digital Corpus

The ERC project INSCRIBE (Invention of Scripts and their
Beginnings), based at the University of Bologna, Italy, is delighted
to advertise a new position in Digital Humanities, initially for 12
months. The contract is renewable for up to three years in total.

NB: the salary is not subject to full taxation rates.

The successful candidate will be responsible for the creation of 3D
models of the undeciphered Aegean inscriptions (Cretan Hieroglyphic,
Linear A and Cypro-Minoan), which date to the second millennium B.C.
Candidates are expected to have advanced expertise in laser scanning
techniques, RTI, and photogrammetry. The goal is the creation of a
