Two PhD positions (with scholarships) are available at the PSPC-lab 
<http://www.pspc.unige.it> of the Department of Informatics, 
Bioengineering, Robotics, and System Engineering 
<http://www.dibris.unige.it>, University of Genoa, on the following themes:

1) _/Deep architectures for seeing in depth: Sensorimotor associations 
through bidirectional couplings between visual and motor primitives/_. 
[Curriculum "Bioengineering and Bioelectronics" - THEME 5 
<http://www.dibris.unige.it/media/PhD%20Program%20in%20BioRob%20Bioengineering%20and%20Bioelectronics%20v4.pdf>]

2) _/Distributed neuromorphic representations of the 
visual-somatosensory peripersonal space/_. [ Curriculum "Cognitive 
Robotics, Interaction and Rehabilitation Technologies" - THEME 15 
<http://www.dibris.unige.it/media/PhD%20Program%20in%20BioRob%20Cognitive%20Robotics%20v4.pdf>] 


The proposed research projects, focused on "sensorimotor integration 
paradigms in the peripersonal space", will provide the opportunity to 
work on neural modeling, visual psychophysics, interaction technologies, 
robotics, or a combination of them.
Experimental, modeling, and theoretical approaches might be pursued with 
a different accent according to personal attitude.

The call has been issued under the joint UniGe-IIT PhD Course on 
"Bioengineering and Robotics".
Full details on the call and the application procedure are available at: 
http://www.studenti.unige.it/postlaurea/dottorati/XXIX/bandoGeneraleEN

The PSPC-lab is based at the Department of Informatics, Bioengineering, 
Robotics, and System Engineering of the University of Genoa, Italy. The 
newly established inter-school department (at the intersection between 
the School of Science and the Polytechnic School) offers an excellent 
multidisciplinary, interactive and collaborative research environment 
combining expertise in computer vision, computational neuroscience, 
neuromorphic computing, robotics and mechatronics.

Successful applicants should have a good honors degree in computer 
science, engineering, physical sciences, cognitive science, or related 
disciplines.
An open mind and enthusiasm for interdisciplinary research are required.

*Online application available from August 5, 2013 at 12:00 to September 
20, 2013 at 12:00 (italian time)*

It is highly recommended that prospective students contact Silvio P. 
Sabatini (silvio.sabatini at unige.it) or Fabio Solari 
(fabio.solari at unige.it) _well ahead of the deadline_ in case of 
questions about the research themes, or doubts about the application 
procedure.
