Job: Postdoc position at the University of Verona, Italy
Duration: 1 years, renewable (by mutual consent) up to 3 years
Topics: Signal processing, robotics, and control
Language requirement: English
The Robotics Laboratory Altair at the University of Verona
(http://metropolis.sci.univr.it) is seeking applicants for a
postdoctoral position. The bulk of the research to be carried
out will be in the context of the EU FP7 project FILOSE
and is concerned with studying robotic fish sensing and locomotion.
The project aims at developing basic knowledge and
technical validation of the interaction between the fish
lateral line sensing and its muscular structure.
Candidates must have a strong research record and a solid
background in signal processing and filtering. The task will
be to analyze the data generated by the artificial lateral line,
to identify the hydrodynamic environment, and to control
the navigation behavior of the robotic fish. Experience
with control systems, robotics, and identification is highly
How to apply
Please send your CV and letters of recommendation to
Paolo Fiorini (paolo.fiorini at univr.it), and to
Maarja Kruusmaa (maarja.kruusmaa at biorobotics.ttu.ee).
If you have any questions related to the position, please
don't hesitate to contact prof. Fiorini by e-mail.
This is an excellent opportunity for someone interested in an
academic career and in professional growth. By working in this
project, you will be exposed to robotics applications related to
biology, microtechnology, mechatronics and control. Postdoc
salaries at UNIVR are competitive, and Verona is a great city to
live in. Knowledge of Italian is useful, but not necessary.
