[robotics-worldwide] [jobs] PhD: Cognitive Robotics, Interaction and Rehabilitation Technologies

Giulio Sandini
Cognitive Robotics, Interaction and Rehabilitation Technologies - PhD fellowships
Deadline August 22nd  noon (Italian Time/CET)
A few selected PhD fellowships are offered at the Robotics, Brain and Cognitive Sciences Department (RBCS) of the Italian Institute of Technology in Genoa, Italy, addressing aspects of neuroscience and robotics from a scientific, technological and social perspective.The fellowships  are offered within the curriculum of "Cognitive Robotics, Interaction and Rehabilitation Technologies" of the  PhD program "Bioengineering and Robotics" organized jointly by IIT and the University of Genoa.
If your goal is to learn how to work in a true interdiscplinary environment in close contact with engineers, biologists, psychologists, mathematicians, physicists, medical doctors, look at the RBCS Web-Site<http://www.iit.it/rbcs> to see our history and current activities and infrastructure, browse through the description of the individual research themes<http://phd.dibris.unige.it/biorob/media/PhDProgramBioRobCognitiveRoboticsdapub.pdf> offered this year to find what you like most and send your application after reading carefully the rather complicated application procedures<http://www.iit.it/en/openings/phd-calls> (the first selection criterion is to be able to provide all documents in the right format before the deadline).

To apply, please visit the following link and follow the "online application" link:

For general questions regarding the research environment at RBCS send a message to me ([hidden email]<mailto:[hidden email]>)  and for specific questions regarding the individual themes you can find the reference in the description of the individual research themes<http://phd.dibris.unige.it/biorob/media/PhDProgramBioRobCognitiveRoboticsdapub.pdf>.
For questions regarding the application procedure write to Anastasia Bruzzone ([hidden email]<mailto:[hidden email]>)
Hope you like what we plan to do (and what we have done already).
