Marie Curie ER (post-doc) position at Telerobot: humanoid robotics and robot design   

RobotDoc (Robotics for Development of Cognition) is a multi-national doctoral training network for the interdisciplinary training on developmental cognitive robotics. The RobotDoc network consists of an excellent balance of academic and industrial partners, and of European and international laboratory leaders in developmental cognitive robotics. The network activities will have a significant impact on the career perspectives of the Fellows through training opportunities on industrial and academic research projects and skills. This network is funded by the European Union Marie Curie program ITN Initial Training Network.

TELEROBOT is a well-established robotics and industrial automation SME based in Genoa, Italy. TELEROBOT inherits an important tradition originated within the Finmeccanica group; over the years, its mission was to promote, commercialize and perform R&D in the field of advanced robotics by targeting ground, sea and space applications for the Italian as well as international markets. For further details please go to www.telerobot.it 

Experienced researchers (ER) must, at the time of recruitment, either be in possession of a doctoral degree, irrespective of the time taken to acquire it, or have at least four years of full-time equivalent research experience. This is measured from the date when they obtained the degree which formally allowed them to embark on a doctorate in the country in which the degree was obtained or in the host country (irrespective of whether or not a doctorate was envisaged).

The research experience of an experienced researcher recruited for initial training may not exceed 5 years at the time of the appointment. Applicants must not be nationals of the country of the institution in which they are applying. They must not have resided or carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc.) in the country there are applying to, for longer than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to their recruitment. In case of applicants that are nationals of the country of the institution in which they are applying, they are eligible only in case they have been (at the cut off) active in research in a third country for at least 3 years.


The Marie Curie ER scholarship will last 2 years and the work place will be in Genova, Italy. 

A mechanical/mechatronic engineering background will be strongly preferred. For further details please refer to http://ec.europa.eu/research/fp7/understanding/marie-curieinbrief/home_en.html or contact Dr Francesco Becchi (francesco.becchi at telerobot.it).


We aim to have all persons starting as soon as possible. You are advised to contact us  before February 22th 2010. Communication to the selected person will be given by March 1st .
