The Humanoid & Human Centred Mechatronics Lab of the Advanced Robotics Research Lines at IIT is seeking to appoint an outstanding intern with a strong ambition to pursue a research career.

We are looking for highly motivated scientists with an MSc in Electrical/Mechanical/Control Engineering.

The Humanoids group is currently one of the world leading research labs in the development of humanoid robotics, legged robots and new actuation systems ranging from series compliant actuators to actuators with variable compliance and damping characteristics. The successful candidate will develop/investigate a novel joint actuation and elastic transmission system and their associate control schemes and eventually demonstrate energy-efficient operation using energy storage capacity elements, and energy recycling techniques.


The successful applicant is expected to have a strong background in mechanical design and/or control theory as well as robot kinematics and dynamics. Experience with real hardware is highly desirable.
At the time of the application, the prospected candidate is about to take a Master’s Degree in a relevant subject area or has recently obtained it within the past six months.
For further information please contact: Dr. Navvab Kashiri (navvab.kashiri at iit.it).

Interested applicants should submit their CV electronically outlining experience and qualifications, a statement about the research area of interest as well as the names of at least two referees to Navvab Kashiri (navvab.kashiri at iit.it), quoting [HHCM-INTERNSHIP] in the email subject.

Please apply before November 21, 2016.
