Melting neuroscience and robotics - PhD fellowships
Deadline September 20th noon (Italian Time/CET)

A few selected PhD fellowships are offered at the Robotics, Brain and
Cognitive Sciences Department (RBCS) of the Italian Institute of Technology
in Genoa, Italy, addressing aspects of neuroscience and robotics from a
scientific, technological and social perspective.

The fellowships  are offered within the curriculum of "Cognitive Robotics,
Interaction and Rehabilitation Technologies" of the  PhD program
"Bioengineering and Robotics" organized jointly by IIT and the University of
Genoa.

If your goal is to learn how to work in a true multidisciplinary environment
in close contact with engineers, biologists, psychologists, mathematicians,
physicists, medical doctors, look at the RBCS Web-Site
<http://www.iit.it/rbcs>  to see our history and current activities and
infrastructure, browse through the description of the individual research
themes
<http://www.biomedica.ingegneria.unige.it/media/PhD%20Program%20in%20BioRob%
20Cognitive%20Robotics%20v4.pdf>  offered this year to find what you like
most and send your application after reading carefully the rather
complicated application procedures <http://www.iit.it/phdschool>  (the first
selection criterion is to be able to provide all documents in the right
format before the deadline on September 20th, 2013 noon (Italian time/CET). 

For general questions regarding the research environment at RBCS send a
message to me (giulio.sandini at iit.it)  and for specific questions regarding
the individual themes you can find the reference in the description of the
individual research themes
<http://www.biomedica.ingegneria.unige.it/media/PhD%20Program%20in%20BioRob%
20Cognitive%20Robotics%20v4.pdf> .
For questions regarding the application procedure write to Anastasia
Bruzzone (anastasia.bruzzone at iit.it)

Hope you like what we plan to do (and what we have done already).
