-This job offer is part of the Workshop "Artificial Intelligence for the characterization of technical traditions" and is part of a project that aims to develop a systematic method to discriminate ceramic craft techniques from the 3D imaging of Neolithic ceramic remains, based on the use of mathematical methods and Artificial Intelligence. The porosities observed in the shards thanks to 3D imaging may result from the trapping of air bubbles in the ceramic paste during shaping and/or from the disappearance, during firing, of organic materials (mainly vegetable fibers). The analysis of 3D images will allow to better characterize the different types of pores and to propose a classification in order to segment the most significant objects for the reconstruction of the shaping processes.


- Development of software for signal reconstruction in X-ray tomography
- Reconstruction of tomographic data sets (objects: Neolithic pottery)
- Development of innovative methods for data processing (tomographic images): use of artificial intelligence tools (Machine Learning, etc.) in order to automate processing (such as segmentation of objects, like porosity, mineral inclusions and other elements contained in the pottery) and to facilitate the identification of relevant information for the characterization of mounting techniques
- Publication of results in international journals


- Extensive knowledge of applied mathematics and Machine Learning
- Experience in X-ray tomography data acquisition and reconstruction
- Experience in X-ray tomography data processing and analysis
- Knowledge in prehistoric archaeology and particularly in ceramology
- Experience in the study of ceramic artifacts from the Neolithic period, and in particular technical traditions
- Mastery of computer languages in signal processing (Python, Matlab) and statistical processing (R)
- Writing of scientific articles in mathematical and archaeological journals
- Mastery of English: oral and written expression and comprehension level C1 (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages)

Work Context

The Engineer will be based in Nice at CEPAM (CNRS-UMR 7364, Université Côte d'Azur - SJA3; 24, avenue des Diables Bleus 06300 Nice). CEPAM (Cultures - Environments. Prehistory, Antiquity, Middle Ages) is a joint CNRS - UCA research unit that develops research on the knowledge of past societies, their modes of operation, their evolution and their relationship with the environment. https://www.cepam.cnrs.fr/
The engineer will be part of a dynamic team and will work in collaboration with researchers, engineers and students from Master to post-doctorate.
