The Department of Advanced Computing Sciences (DACS) of Maastricht University and SwarmLab for Cognitive Robotics and Complex Intelligent Systems invite expressions of interest from postdoctoral researchers with an excellent track record of research to apply for Marie Skłodowska-Curie (MSCA) Postdoctoral Fellowships (HORIZON-MSCA-2024-PF-01-01) to be hosted at UM. The prestigious MSCA fellowship has a duration between 12 and 24 months and is provided to researchers of any nationality who wish to engage in R&I projects by either coming to Europe from any country in the world or moving within Europe.

Why UM?
The Department of Advanced Computing Sciences is Maastricht University’s largest and oldest department broadly covering the fields of artificial intelligence, data science, computer science, mathematics and robotics. Over 100 researchers work and study in the Department of Advanced Computing Sciences, whose roots trace back to 1987. The department’s staff teaches approximately 1200 bachelor’s and master’s students in 4 specialized study programmes in Computer Science, Data Science and Artificial Intelligence.
