[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
J32F17000950005.

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.
