Project descriptions

LArcHer is an interdisciplinary research project led by ICREA Research Professor Inés Domingo. LArcHer project aims at pioneering a new and more comprehensive way of understanding one of Europe’s most extraordinary bodies of prehistoric art, awarded Unesco World Heritage status in 1998: Levantine rock art (LRA). The ground-breaking nature of the project relies on combining a multidisciplinary (Archaeology, Heritage Science and IT) and multiscale approach (from microanalysis to landscape perspectives) to gain a holistic view of this art. It also aims at closing existing gaps between science and heritage mainstreams, to better understand the values and threats affecting this tradition and bring about a change in the way we understand, care, use and manage this millenary legacy. One of the key aims of this project, related to this position, is to explore the changing geographies and location patterns of Levantine rock art, and its relationship to the natural and cultural surrounding landscapes and build a database management system to facilitate comparative analysis. We also aim at experimenting with cutting-edge IT for rock art recording to lead LRA virtualization.

Responsibilities and tasks within the project: the successful applicant will be expected to:

  • Design and development of GIS applications to manage project data
  • Cartographic map production and spatial data analysis for project deliverables
  • Collect field data and manage spatial data (archaeology, natural resources and environmental information)
  • Prepare site and artifacts 3D models for project deliverables.
  • Explore new formulas to obtain more detailed, objective, metrically accurate and comprehensive documentation of this heritage, for research, conservation and dissemination.
  • Adapt site and artifacts 3D models for online visualization
  • Management tasks for LArcHer project (max. 10% of the time) including drafting applications for permits and formal reports, among others.
  • Collaborate in the presentation of project results in international and national conferences and publications.
