[robotics-worldwide] [jobs] Postdoctoral position in UI / AR / VR at IIT, Italy

Nikhil Deshpande
************************************
Postdoc in User Interface / Augmented Reality / Virtual Reality development
at the Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia, Italy
************************************

The Advanced Robotics Research Line at 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 user interfaces for haptic teleoperation of complex robotic
systems using augmented and/or virtual reality systems.

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.
