[robotics-worldwide] [jobs] Postdoc in Legged Robot Locomotion at IIT, Italy (deadline 30/Nov)

Claudio Semini
Postdoc in Legged Robot Locomotion at IIT, Genova

The Advanced Robotics Research Line and the Dynamic Legged Systems lab
<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__dls.iit.it_&d=DwIDaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=kmPvoZvKm4jIKG4JxesXZarrkWeXSIO6xv6wYijhUEE&s=7h5d9ccVzKv6lPh_hYsP8eNvXYGCnqNHMnFds4Ic05E&e=> of Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia, an
English-language research institute, is seeking a highly motivated,
full-time post-doc, who will have a leading research role in the
development of Locomotion Strategies for a Quadrupedal Field Robot. Info
about the quadruped robot: www.iit.it/hyq

The selected candidate will join an interdisciplinary team and have the
opportunity to pursue research within the project “Sistemi Cibernetici
Collaborativi – Teleoperation” in collaboration with INAIL (“Istituto
Nazionale per l'Assicurazione contro gli Infortuni sul Lavoro” -
National Institute for Insurance against Workplace Injuries) CUP

The project will create the next-generation, collaborative master-slave
teleoperation system for intuitive operation in hazard-prone industries,
with the aim of reducing risks to workers’ health and safety.
Specifically, the objectives of the project are the development and
system integration of: (1) a hydraulic quadruped field robot; (2) a
novel dexterous robotic manipulator arm for grasping and manipulation of
objects; (3) a novel master hand exoskeleton device for haptic
tele-manipulation; and (4) a novel user interaction interfaces for
intuitive teleoperation using augmented reality and virtual reality
systems. The project will be developed within an inter-disciplinary
group (robotics, engineering, and ergonomics), in close collaboration
with end-users.

Further details about the position and the application procedure can be
found at the below link. The deadline for applications is November 30, 2017.


Best regards,
Claudio Semini
