CYENS Centre of Excellence (formerly known as RISE) is the Research Centre of Excellence in Cyprus focusing on Interactive media, Smart systems and Emerging technologies aiming to empower knowledge and technology transfer in the region. It is a joint venture between the three public universities of Cyprus - University of Cyprus, Cyprus University of Technology, and Open University of Cyprus, the Municipality of Nicosia, and two renowned international partners, the Max Planck Institute for Informatics, Germany, and, the University College London, United Kingdom. This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme H2020-WIDESPREAD-01-2016-2017 (Teaming Phase 2) under grant agreement No. 739578, as well as from the Cypriot Government, local and international partners, and other sponsors.

The Centre conducts excellent, internationally competitive scientific research in the areas of visual sciences, human factors and design, communication, and artificial intelligence delivered by high-calibre multidisciplinary research teams. CYENS engages in knowledge transfer and innovation activities aiming to bridge the gap between scientific research and STEM-led innovation and entrepreneurship.

The successful candidate will be a member of the Museum Lab MRG (https://museumlab.cyens.org.cy/ ). The Museum Lab is dedicated to the exploration of emerging technologies inside and outside museums and other heritage sites. We are an interdisciplinary team with expertise in museum studies, history, arts, archaeology, photography and new technologies such as 360 photography/video, photogrammetry, 3D modelling and AR/VR.

The Museum Lab is currently involved in three projects that require development of web applications and on which the successful candidate is expected to work on. More specifically, the first project includes the development of an architectural heritage app with geo-location and real-time interaction; the second project demands the development of an interactive map based on Google maps which will require the organisation of historical data into a database or an API and will include timely diagrams and overlays; and the third project will require the development of a dedicated platform for hosting online educational games.
