Postdoctoral positions on industrial exoskeleton development.

The Advanced Robotics Research Line at Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia, 
an English-language research Institute, is seeking to appoint highly 
motivated full-time post-docs who will have a leading research role in 
developing industrial exoskeletons.

The selected candidates will join an interdisciplinary team and have the 
opportunity to pursue research within the project “Sistemi Cibernetici 
Collaborativi – Exoskeletons” in partnership with INAIL (“Istituto 
Nazionale per l'Assicurazione contro gli Infortuni sul Lavoro” - 
National Insurance Institute for Workplace Accidents) CUP J32F17000950005.

This project aims at the development of a full-body exoskeleton to 
assist workers performing manual tasks. There will be an important focus 
towards the industrial needs from different areas, including, but not 
limited to, automotive, logistics and construction. The project will be 
developed within an inter-disciplinary group, including not only experts 
in robotics and exoskeletons, but also professionals in bioengineering 
and ergonomics.
