Under the scientific supervision of Prof Francesco Mondada (EPFL) and Dr Alberto Piatti (IDSIA and DFA).

We are looking for an outstanding Ph.D. student with excellent mathematical, technical and/or educational skills, as well as basic reading and listening skills in Italian. The applicant should have a Bachelor and a Master degree in either Engineering, Mathematics, Robotics or Educational sciences. The research project aims at analysing the impact of continuing education using  educational robotics tools for the development of the computational thinking skills of pre-primary, primary and lower secondary school teachers, at studying the relationship between the computational thinking skills of the teachers and the skills of their pupils and, in general, at developing efficient curricula and robotics tools for teacher education in educational robotics. The PhD student will work together with the Educational Robotics Group at SUPSI (IDSIA and DFA) and with the Laboratoire de Systèmes Robotiques (LSRO) of the EPFL. The workplace will be located in Lausanne during the first year, and in Locarno, Lugano-Manno or Lausanne in the following years, depending on the profile of the candidate and on the detailed research schedule.
 
The position is funded by the University of Applied Sciences of Southern Switzerland. The initial appointment will be for 3 years, with possible prolongation by one year. The PhD student will be employed at SUPSI and matriculated at the EPFL. SUPSI and EPFL offer an international and stimulating environment.
