*Post Doc* position in *Biomedical Robotics and Modeling for Biomedical
Applications*
at the Center for Micro-BioRobotics (CMBR) of the *Italian Institute of
Technology (IIT)*

*Deadline* for applications: April 15th, 2016

*Description*
The major objective of this research area is to develop novel robotics
solutions for biomedical applications. At the component level, we aim at
investigating novel tools (e.g. flexible and controllable tools) featuring
enhanced operation through tissue and anatomical cavities. To this purpose,
we strongly adopt model-based design. At the system level, we aim at
developing robotic platforms improving current medical approaches. At both
levels, we also pursue the synergy between robot-assisted therapy and
nanotechnology-related solutions.
These research activities are performed in a fully equipped lab including a
robotic manipulator (Kuka LWR IV+), haptic interfaces (Sigma7, Phantoms),
optical and electromagnetic trackers (Polaris Spectra, Aurora), an
ultrasound system (Philips iU22) as well as complementary h/w and s/w tools
(for scientific computing, solid modeling and multi-physics simulations).
Based on targeted applications, research activities can leverage the
excellent CMBR facilities, as well as collaborations. International
applications are encouraged.

*Requirements*
We are looking for a scientist with the following competences/skills:
•	Sound background and working experience in mechatronics/robotics;
•	Proficiency in computer-aided design, enabling device
prototyping/fabrication;
•	Strong competencies in programming (C/C++, ROS), in particular in the
control of robotic manipulators/devices;
•	Competencies in numerical modeling (MATLAB, commercial packages) of rigid
and deformable systems;
•	Basic knowledge of materials and fabrication processes functional to
design/prototyping.
All the above competences/skills are highly desirable but not all are
strictly mandatory. Strong organizational skills, creativity, motivation and
communication skills (oral and written) are highly required.
The prospective candidate has a Ph.D. in Mechatronics, Mechanical/Aerospace
Engineering, Robotics or related fields.
