Language requirement: English


The Automation, Robotics and System Control (ARSControl)
Laboratory at the University of Modena and Reggio
Emilia ( http://www.arscontrol.org ) 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 PAN-ROBOTS
( http://cordis.europa.eu/search/index.cfm?fuseaction=proj.document&PJ_LANG=EN&PJ_RCN=13144274&pid=371&q=066797B6D3F374AB2E1221B33F072842&type=adv ),
and is concerned with studying mobile robotic localization and
mapping using laser scanners integrated with vision system.

Candidates must have a strong research record and a solid
background in Vision system with application to robotics. The
task will be:

 Object recognition and classification, map building
and data fusion, in the context of mobile robots moving in
industrial environments.

Experience with vision system, robotics, and control system is highly

How to apply

Please send your CV and letters of recommendation to
Cesare Fantuzzi (cesare.fantuzzi at unimore.it), and to
Lorenzo Sabattini (lorenzo.sabattini at unimore.it).
