This research group has a strong interdisciplinary character, being comprised by researchers from two different areas in Universitat de València: cultural heritage and computer science. Our main common effort is SILKNOW, a 3-year research project funded within the H2020 program, dealing with the application of various digital technologies (artificial intelligence, semantic web, big data, ontologies, 3D printing, and advanced visualization tools) to European silk heritage from the 15th to the 19th centuries. It applies next-generation computing research to the needs of diverse users: museums, education, tourism, creative industries, media…, thus preserving the tangible and intangible heritage associated with silk. Based on records from existing catalogues, it aims to produce digital modelling of weaving techniques, through automatic visual recognition, as well as multilingual and semantically enriched access to digital data.

The University of Valencia is implementing since 2017 the Human Resources Strategy for Researchers (HRS4R),this seal recognizes the University’s ability to attract talent, create a favourable work conditions, encourage research and enhance the careers of researchers in Europe: https://www.uv.es/uvweb/research-service/en/uv-research/human-resources-strategy-researchers-1286005500771.html

We are open to collaboration with researchers interested in interdisciplinary approaches to textile heritage, especially if this involves the use of ICT and digital humanities, broadly considered. While a doctoral degree would be desirable, candidates in the pre-doctoral level can also apply for collaboration with us. Although most communication within the project takes place in English, a working knowledge of Spanish is greatly encouraged, too, but not mandatory.

Documents to be submitted by the candidates:

- CV.

- Proposal of research work to develop within our group, clearly indicating the links to our current work, and possible future perspectives of development.

- A sample of a few publications in pdf.
