    The IT University of Copenhagen is accepting applications for a post-doc position as part of the Horizon 2020 project entitled “Meaningful Personalization of Hybrid Virtual Museum Experiences Through Gifting and Appropriation (The GIFT project)”

    From the position announcement:

    The IT University of Copenhagen invites highly motivated individuals to apply for a postdoc position starting on 1 September 2017 or soon thereafter for a duration of one year, with a possibility for extension.
    The position will form part of a Horizon 2020 project entitled “Meaningful Personalization of Hybrid Virtual Museum Experiences Through Gifting and Appropriation (The GIFT project)”, at the Center for Computer Games Research. The GIFT project aims to develop a framework with tools, theory, and best practice guidelines to guide the development of mobile apps for museums that facilitate personalized experiences of both digital and physical museum exhibitions, along with two prototypes of such applications.
    The project includes 6 European research partners beside ITU: Blast Theory (UK), NextGame (RS), University of Nottingham (UK), University of Uppsala (SE), European Foundation (NL) and Culture24 (UK). In addition, the project will work with representatives from museums in 8 countries: Denmark, UK, Netherlands, Spain, Italy, Norway, Serbia and the US.
    For more information, see the project website:
    Candidates for the positions will be expected to contribute to both the project’s outcome and research goals. The project’s outcome goals include:
    • Formulating a set of best practice guidelines for meaningful personalisation of hybrid virtual museum experiences, based on an action research process with a panel of museum partners;
    • Contribute to the design of prototypes for hybrid virtual museum experiences;
    • Study, validate and evaluate prototypes developed by project partners.
    In addition, the project has the following research goals:
    • Develop innovative approaches to the design of playful experiences with art and cultural heritage;
    • Formulate new perspectives on pervasive games and other playful experiences that incorporate both physical and virtual presence;
    • Propose new approaches for facilitating personalized experiences with cultural heritage, which aim to bridge or problematize the distances between audiences, and heritage, e.g. cultural, historical, ideological, aesthetic, or other.
    The postdoctoral researcher’s task is to contribute to the development of the overall GIFT framework by consolidating knowledge from design experiments and action research into design guidelines that can be used by museum professionals and designers. The researcher’s main task is to help to turn project’s research results into actionable guidelines for designers and other practitioners. This may entail both practical design work as well as studying and reviewing experimental results from other parts of the GIFT project. In addition, the candidate may be asked to contribute to developing new proposals for external funding. We seek a highly motivated candidate with interest in researching and designing for museums and other cultural institutions. Experience with applications for research funding is also valued. Technical competencies with relevant technologies (e.g. mobile application development, mixed reality/augmented reality applications, etc.) is a plus but is not necessary. The candidate is expected to do research resulting in one or more publications at a high international level, including the project’s planned midway symposium, final conference, and anthology. The project is based on a strong international team with an ambitious publication strategy and great interest in supporting younger researchers to succeed with their research. The project team aims to develop several high-quality co-authored publications, to which the postdoctoral researcher is expected to contribute.
