Three internship positions in 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 seeking highly
motivated interns with key development roles in different areas including
mechatronics and software development for 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.

This project will develop new software and hardware systems as part of the
master station in advanced robotic teleoperation in high-risk industrial
environments with the aim of reducing risks to workers’ health and safety.
The project will use, develop, and integrate advanced technologies on
tele-locomotion and haptic tele-manipulation for robots providing an
immersive 3D user interaction experience. The project will build on the
strong existing technological capabilities in the group, acquired through
the successful implementation of various high-tech projects in this field.
The technical know-how of previous projects, including HyQ, WearHap, µRALP,
Robo-Mate, and WalkMan, will contribute to the development of an advanced,
intuitive teleoperation user interface.

Position 1: Mechatronics Intern Fellow

Position 2: Virtual Reality development Intern Fellow

Position 3: Augmented Reality development Intern Fellow

The successful candidates will be offered a 1-year contract with a highly
competitive salary commensurate with qualifications and experience.

Details on the positions and the application procedures are available at
the below link. The deadline for applications is November 9, 2017.
