Each of the 15 research positions in the DNA-Robotics consortium will be filled by candidates that are in the first four years of their research career and without a PhD degree at the time of recruitment. Furthermore, our candidates must not have lived in the country of the partner employing the candidate for more than 12 months in the last 3 years. Therefore, each of recruited candidates will be moving to a new country.

In the list below, you’ll find an overview of the projects. As the recruited researchers take turn to introduce themselves on our blog, you’ll find a link to their introduction in the list.
