- During the current year, there are 68 positions available in the “Leonardo Labs” – the new research & development facilities of Leonardo – open to researchers on an international basis. All the profile objectives of the call can be found at www.leonardocompany.com
- Roberto Cingolani, Chief Technology & Innovation Officer at Leonardo: “Through the opening of the international recruitment call, we begin to build the team of talents and innovators that will accelerate Leonardo's sustainable growth in the coming decades"
Leonardo has started its recruitment call for young talents for “Leonardo Labs”, the new research & development corporate laboratories focused on innovation in Leonardo's traditional sectors and the development of new long-term technologies.
In the current year, 68 positions, subdivided into six different areas of activities, are open. All the details on the profiles available can be found, from today, on the Leonardo website: www.leonardocompany.com/LeonardoLabs-CallToRecruit
The recruitment process is addressed to young researchers – with a STEM degree and/or PhD and proven skills – who will join the following research areas: 36 positions in Artificial Intelligence and Autonomous Intelligent System, 15 in Big Data Analytics, 6 in High Performance Computing, 4 in Electrification of Aeronautical Platforms, 5 in Materials and Structures, and 2 in Quantum Technologies. The researchers, the Leonardo Research Fellows, will be part of teams structured in Leonardo Labs’ six sites in Milan, Turin, Genoa, Rome, Naples and Taranto.
“The Leonardo Labs comes from Leonardo’s desire to be on the edge of digital innovation and beyond, to move up the market demand and thus improve the products and services offered to customers. With the opening of the international recruitment call, today we aim to provide ourselves with those resources and talents that will guarantee us a long-term sustainable growth perspective, increasing Leonardo’s competitiveness and, where possible, anticipating innovation”, explains Roberto Cingolani, Chief Technology & Innovation Officer at Leonardo.
The innovation strategy, an action defined within the “Leonardo 2030 Masterplan”, of Leonardo Labs provides six inter-divisional programmes dedicated to developing technologies and skills that are transversal to the corporate business areas. These facilities will involve the best skills on an international scale, of the AD&S sector, of the related business ecosystem, of young people and of the local communities. The Leonardo Labs will be a catalyst for local entities, allowing Leonardo to centralise the development of enabling technologies to fully exploit the innovation front. The Leonardo Labs will be, if necessary, created with selected external technological partners.
Each laboratory is dedicated to a specific application area and includes, within it, different lines of research such as big data, high performance calculation and simulation, artificial intelligence and autonomous systems (uncrewed), quantum technologies, electric mobility, materials and structures.
The Leonardo Labs’ new structures are being built in the proximity of Leonardo’s main industrial sites in Italy and abroad, with the aim of facilitating technology transfer and maximising the benefits for the surrounding territories, consolidating collaboration with local institutions. The Genoa area will host one of the most powerful existing computers that will significantly strengthen Leonardo and national capabilities in super-computing, big data and in the development of Artificial Intelligence applications.
The laboratories will also allow a continuous flow of talents to ensure flexibility and renewal, both of skills and professional abilities, on the basis of an internationally adopted model through which young international external researchers will work together with experts and researchers across Leonardo’s Divisions.
