15 early-stage researcher positions available within the COBRA Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network

A call for applications is open for 15 three-year contracts offered to early-stage researchers (ESRs) wishing to enrol as PhD students in the framework of the Conversational Brains (COBRA) project.

15 early-stage researcher positions available within the COBRA Marie Sklodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network

COBRA is a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network funded by the European Commission within the Horizon 2020 programme. It aims to train ESRs to accurately characterize and model the linguistic, cognitive and brain mechanisms that allow conversation to unfold in both human-human and human-machine interactions.

The network comprises ten academic research centers on language, cognition and the human brain, and four industrial partners in web-based speech technology, conversational agents and social robots, in ten countries.

The partners’ combined expertise and high complementarity will allow COBRA to offer ESRs an excellent training programme as well as very strong exposure to the non-academic sector.

Deadline for submission of applications: 31 March 2020
