        Subject: AFF, Maynooth U (Ireland) seeking an Augmented Reality Developer


We are seeking a developer with experience in mobile app development, 
and especially Augmented Reality technologies. This position provides an 
exciting opportunity for a creative and dedicated individual to join a 
vibrant team and contribute to the development of a novel way of 
teaching and learning history in the classroom.

Contested Memories: The Battle of Mount Street Bridge 3D visualisation 
project created a virtual world utilising Unity 3D as a means to better 
understand this iconic battle of the Easter Rising. Funded by the Andrew 
W. Mellon Foundation, and created in partnership with the Humanities 
Virtual Worlds Consortium, the project explored how to use 3D 
technologies in answering research questions that cannot be addressed 
using more traditional methods and approaches.

This follow-on project, funded by PRTLI5, builds on previous work to 
develop a mobile application to be used at schools as an Augmented/Mixed 
reality application implementing image recognition to trigger multimedia 
content related to the battle. We are seeking a developer to join a 
project team that includes individuals with expertise in history, user 
testing and evaluation, digital heritage, and interaction design to 
collaboratively design the Augmented Reality App.

This position provides an exciting opportunity for a creative and 
dedicated individual to contribute to the development of a novel way of 
teaching and learning by using emerging technologies combined with 
physical interactions. The App (mobile Web, Native or Hybrid) will be 
delivered for iOS and/or Android operating systems.

Maynooth University is committed to a strategy in which the primary 
University goals of excellent research and scholarship and outstanding 
education are interlinked and equally valued.
