Two PhD openings are available in the Haptic and Interaction Technologies Lab (http://www.iit.it/en/advr-labs/haptic-and-interaction-technologies.html) in the Department of Advanced Robotics at the Italian Institute of Technology (IIT). IIT is an English language research Institute placed in Genoa, Italy. The positions are fully funded for 3 years and start in January 2014.
Application deadline: September, 20th 2013
List of PhD themes:
Theme 6:  Tactile sensing for robotic arms and dextrous hands
Theme 7: Wearable haptic systems for dexterous teleoperation and virtual Immersion
Detail descriptions of the themes are available at: http://www.iit.it/en/advr-labs/haptic-and-interaction-technologies/1638-phd-openings.html

The selected applicants will join an interdisciplinary group working on Haptic and Interaction Technologies and have the opportunity to pursue research within the WEARHAP (Wearable Haptics) European Commission project which is recently started in collaboration with a consortium of leading universities and research institutes in Europe.  Both PhD themes aim to produce innovative designs of wearable haptic feedback and tactile sensing devices. Young scientists holding excellent First/Master degrees in Mechanical / Electrical engineering, computer science, or other related fields are invited to apply for admission.
