        Subject: Job Opportunity: Research Software Engineer/ 3D Virtual Research Environments

PURE3D is looking for a research software engineer (holding an Master’s or
PhD) to join the project for 28 months, full time, starting in September
2021, based at the Faculty of Arts & Social Sciences, Maastricht University.
This is an exciting opportunity to join a dynamic research team and
collaborate with diverse stakeholders in the Netherlands and beyond,
including The Common Lab Research Infrastructure for the Arts and Humanities
(CLARIAH), the Data Archiving and Networked Services (DANS), as well as the
4D research Lab at the University of Amsterdam, Erfgoed Leiden en Omstreken,
Gemeente Maastricht, Nederlands Mijnmuseum, and Museum van Bommel van Dam.

PURE3D will address the challenges of access and long-term preservation of
3D scholarship by developing:

An access infrastructure for viewing interactive 3D models (from single
objects to virtual worlds) within the context of a scholarly publication
format (3D Scholarly Editions);

A preservation repository to deposit raw files, which, due to their size,
format, lack of standards etc., are typically inaccessible to researchers
beyond the original creators;

A conceptual and methodological framework for valorising and evaluating 3D

A centre of excellence for researchers embarking on 3D scholarship.
