Position: Research Fellow - Signal and Image Processing for Art Investigation (EPSRC ARTICT)
Institution: University College London
Department: Electronic & Electrical Engineering
Location: London, United Kingdom
Duties: As part of our work in Signal and Image Processing in Support of Art Investigation, Conservation and Preservation, the UCL Electronic & Electrical Engineering Department invites applications for a Research Fellow in Signal and Image Processing for Art Investigation. The scope of this project is to develop novel signal processing, image processing and machine learning algorithms, leveraging multi-dimensional datasets such as X-Ray Fluorescence (XRF) and Hyper-Spectral Imaging (HSI) datacubes, to support the technical study, conservation and preservation of Old Masters paintings
Requirements: Applicants should have a PhD degree (or be about to submit) in a relevant subject area, such as Mathematics, Electronic & Electrical Engineering or Computer Science, or similar experience demonstrated via publications in international journals/conferences or patents. A strong (first or upper second class) undergraduate degree in a relevant subject as above is also required. Knowledge of Signal Analysis and Processing, Image Analysis or Processing, and/or Machine Learning is essential, as are strong programming skills in Matlab, Python or other relevant programming languages. Candidates should have knowledge of general research techniques and effective written and verbal communication skills. A familiarity with the general challenges arising in Cultural Heritage/Heritage Science is desirable

The scope of this project is to develop novel signal processing, image processing and machine learning algorithms, leveraging multi-dimensional datasets such as X-Ray Fluorescence (XRF) and Hyper-Spectral Imaging (HSI) datacubes, to support the technical study, conservation and preservation of Old Masters paintings. The Research Fellow will actively lead the design and development of algorithms to characterize the materials present in a painting based on XRF data, HSI data or a combination of XRF and HSI data as well as developing algorithms to identify, characterize or reveal concealed features present in a painting based on XRF and HSI data, such as underdrawings, concealed designs or pentimenti. We are looking for a talented postdoctoral researcher to join our team and help us fulfill the project's goals, producing quality research, leading to high-quality research papers in high-ranked journals. The successful candidate will work within an established research team led by Dr Miguel Rodrigues. They will be expected to contribute to drafting research bids and proposals related to the topics of this project, for submission to research councils in the UK and elsewhere as well as present work at project meetings, international workshops and conferences. The position is available from October 2019 for 24 months in the first instance. Further funding to support the post may be available. Key Requirements Applicants should have a PhD degree (or be about to submit) in a relevant subject area, such as Mathematics, Electronic & Electrical Engineering or Computer Science, or similar experience demonstrated via publications in international journals / conferences or patents.
