Multiple engineering positions for Advanced Robotic Teleoperation
development at the Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia, Italy
The Advanced Robotics Research Line at IIT, Istituto Italiano di
Tecnologia, an English-language research Institute, is building an
interdisciplinary team of highly motivated, full-time junior/senior
engineers with key development roles in mechanical design, mechatronics,
embedded systems, software development, and augmented and virtual reality
user interfaces.

The selected candidates will join a motivated, inter-disciplinary group of
researchers and engineers, and have the opportunity to pursue research and
development within the project “Sistemi Cibernetici Collaborativi –
Teleoperation” in collaboration with INAIL (“Istituto Nazionale per
l'Assicurazione contro gli Infortuni sul Lavoro” - National Institute for
Insurance against Workplace Injuries, Italy) CUP J32F17000950005.

The project will develop a novel, collaborative, master-slave teleoperation
hardware and software system targeting operation in hazard-prone
industries, with the aim of reducing risks to workers’ health and safety.
It will utilize, develop, and integrate advanced technologies in
tele-locomotion, tele-manipulation, and human-machine interaction. The
project will be developed within an inter-disciplinary group (robotics,
engineering, and ergonomics), in close collaboration with end-users. The
objectives of the project are: (1) integration of a new hydraulic quadruped
field robot; (2) development of a novel dexterous robotic manipulator arm
for object grasping and manipulation; (3) development and integration of a
novel master hand exoskeleton device for haptic tele-manipulation; and (4)
development of novel user interaction interfaces for intuitive
teleoperation using augmented reality and virtual reality systems.

Details on the different positions and the application procedures are
available at the below link. The deadline for applications is August 31,
