============================================
PhD openings in Robotics and Autonomous Systems
Department of Informatics, Bioengineering, Robotics and Systems Engineering
University of Genoa, Italy
============================================

Dear all,
In the context of the Robotics and Autonomous Systems curriculum of the 
PhD Program in Bioengineering and Robotics, I would like to advertise 
the following themes:

============================================
Theme 6: Robotics for Intervention
Goals:
- Cooperative control of free floating intervention AUVs
- Cooperative control of mobile manipulators
- Dynamic control of arm-vehicle systems

Available hardware for the experimental results:
- a crawler mobile manipulator for outdoor environments, two youBot 
platforms, and two floating underwater manipulators currently developed 
for the MARIS national project.

============================================
Theme 9: Cooperative Robotics for the Smart Factory
Goals:
- Investigate modular kinematic structures intrinsically exhibiting 
self-organizing properties (in terms of their reconfiguration and 
relevant motion control)
- Develop cooperation capabilities (with other robotic agents, as well 
as with humans during manipulation, assembly, transportation, etc.)
- bi-manual control in the context of Reconfigurable Interactive 
Manufacturing Cell

Available hardware for the experimental results:
- two youBot platforms and a Baxter bi-manual robotic system

============================================
Requirements for both themes:
Applicants are expected to have strong background and experience in at 
least one of the following topics: mechatronics, control theory, 
robotics. The candidates must have: strong programming skills (C/C++, 
Matlab/Simulink); attitude to problem solving, to conduct experiments, 
and finally be motivated to work within a research team in collaborative 
projects.

============================================
