[robotics-worldwide] [jobs] Postdoc in Quadrupedal Locomotion at IIT, Italy

Claudio Semini
Postdoc in Quadruped Locomotion at IIT, Genova

The Advanced Robotics Research Line and the Dynamic Legged Systems lab
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 of 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: (1) integration of a
new hydraulic quadruped field robot; (2) development of a novel
dexterous robotic manipulator arm for grasping and manipulation of
objects; (3) development and integration of a novel master hand
exoskeleton device for haptic tele-manipulation; and (4) development of
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 August 31, 2017.
