The Dynamic Legged Systems Lab (DLS Lab) at Istituto Italiano di 
Tecnologia (IIT)
is looking for a full time


with proven experience in programming (mostly C and C++).

The flagship platform of the DLS lab is the Hydraulic Quadruped robot 
HyQ (http://www.iit.it/hyq). This fully torque-controlled hydraulically 
actuated quadruped robot can navigate over rough terrain and perform 
highly dynamic tasks such as jumping and running with a variety of 
gaits. More recently the robot demonstrated its capability to perceive 
the environment, plan footholds and navigate over challenging terrain 
where reactive gaits would fail. HyQ is a unique top-level research 
platform that is designed for unstructured environments, e.g. outdoors, 
accident and disaster sites, etc.

The successful candidate will be responsible for developing software in 
the area of embedded systems, communication and networking as well as 
higher level applications such as graphical interfaces to support the 
different projects within the DLS Lab.

The salary will depend on qualifications and experience and will include 
additional health benefits.

To apply please send electronically your detailed CV, university 
transcripts and cover letter outlining motivation, experience and 
qualifications for the post to selezioni at iit.it by January 15th, 2015 
stating “DLSLab SW Eng” in the subject of the e-mail.
