Dear roboticists,
There are two openings at the postdoctoral level to work on robotics at IIT. Please check the full call text at (and the summary below):

1) https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__www.iit.it_careers_openings_opening_424-2Dpost-2Ddoctoral-2Dposition-2Din-2Dmaterials-2Dscience-2Dapplied-2Dto-2Drobotics&d=DwIFAg&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=rFoTAh9aBeXojSybAwoPX3aweSpFuhXYcsj-nRqkD0w&s=6Nuduir_WXSKoL_y7qCnNxWxd0QsrBSXOmP_cm6hZAg&e= 

The research program aims at the development of a new generation robots based on biodegradable materials to fabricate robot structural parts and elastic energy storage buffers and actuation transmission elements. Tuning of mechanical properties will be explored through variable compositions of polymeric materials and their composites, and modular geometries of such materials achieved through multi-material printing using additive manufacturing.  Material compositions and geometries will target to intrinsic embodiment of specific desired stiffness/damping levels ratio as well as their modulation as a function of the component compression with the goal to embed specific dynamic properties and behaviours in the robot bodies.
