Functieomschrijving

AI methods represent a quantifiable scientific alternative to the traditional art authentication methods. The Zurich based startup Art Recognition AG has developed an AI algorithm to authenticate artworks and detect forgeries. To improve the prototype and make it commercially viable, Art Recognition has partnered up with the Cognitive Science & AI Department (CSAI) at Tilburg University (the Netherlands) which already has extensive experience with using computer vision/AI methods in the artistic context. CSAI performs computational research in the domains of Artificial Intelligence and Cognitive Science and runs educational programs on Cognitive Science & Artificial Intelligence and Data Science and Society. The rapid expansion of our programs offers opportunities for young researchers to contribute to our program and to set up and expand their own research.

Art Recognition and the AI Department at Tilburg University invite applications for a 2-year postdoctoral position funded from the Eurostars-2 joint program with co-funding from the European Union Horizon 2020 research and innovation program.

The selected candidate will contribute to the development of next generation AI algorithm applied to art authentication. The candidate will be hosted in the AI Department at Tilburg University and will occasionally travel to Zurich.

Functie-eisen

  • Experience in Deep Learning algorithms;
  • Proficient with using python and relevant platforms (Tensorflow, Google Cloud Platform);
  • Strong track record of research publications in top tier conferences and journals;
  • Interest in working at the frontier of data science and art;
  • Good communication skills and ability to cooperate.

Conditions

The postdoctoral researcher will be employed at Tilburg University. We offer:

  • A 0.8 fte position; The start date of the employment is negotiable, but preferably as soon as possible. If your desired start date is still subject to the corona measures, it is possible to start working remotely.
