The Department of Advanced Robotics at Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (IIT), an English-language research Institute placed in Genoa, Italy, is looking for TWO highly motivated full-time INTERNSHIPS in the area of robotics and computer vision. The selected applicant will join the Advanced Industrial Automation Laboratory and have the opportunity to pursue research within the FP7 European Robotic Challenge (EuroC) project funded by the European Commission under the No. 608849.

Job 1:

We are looking for a highly motivated scientist with a background in Robotics and/or computer science. He/she will be in charge of the development of various ROS packages (URDF, motion planning, communication) to be used on an integrated robotic platforms (mobile platform, robotic arm).

      What required:

·         Proficiency with ROS (ROS-I) packages: MoveIt!, Gazebo…

·         Experience in C++, Python programming.

·         Affinity with experimental and industrial robotics

·         Scientific curiosity, large autonomy and ability to work independently

·         A good team player
