The INTeractive RObotics Research Network, INTRO, a 4-year EU funded Initial Training Network (ITN) in the Marie-Curie People Programme (FP7) coordinated by the University of Umea, Sweden is offering 10 research positions (8 PhD student positions starting in 2010 and 2 post-doctoral positions starting in 2011) in the interdisciplinary areas of Interactive Robotics; Cooperative Robot Learning, Cognitive Human-Robot Interaction (HRI) and Intelligent Interface Design.
INTRO aims to create a new generation of robotic researchers with a broad understanding of the research and technologies needed to build intelligent robots that function in close interaction with humans in unstructured, changing “real word” conditions. The training has a strong multidisciplinary approach complemented by specialized domain knowledge. Young researchers will work closely with industries, endowing them with insight and understanding of the industrial product life-cycle and valuable hands-on experience of top-level industrial robot development.
Academic and industrial partners in this network are coming from Sweden, Israel, Germany, Belgium, France and UK.
