****************************************************************
Call for Fully Funded PhD Positions for Legged Robot Control
Advanced Robotics(ADVR), Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (IIT) 
****************************************************************

There are several fully funded phD positions, jointly offered by the University of Genoa and Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (Italian Institute of Technology, IIT).

I am particularly seeking highly motivated applicants to the following two subjects (Theme 8 and Theme 11):
* Theme 8. Legged Robot Control: Whole-body Falling-over Recovery Control for Humanoids 
   - whole-body sensing algorithm using proprioceptive sensors (e.g., joint torque sensors, encoders and IMU) and exteroception (e.g., force-torque sensors and stereo vision), and
  - motion planning and control for recovering action of the entire body using robust dynamic control schemes.
* Theme 11. Robot Interaction Control: Whole-body Multiple Contact Physical Interaction Control of a Hybrid Legged/Wheeled Robot Platform
   - dynamic whole-body control strategy of hybrid robotic platform to guarantee agile responses and high dexterity to cope with multi contacts of dual arm and four legs and the high kinematic redundancy.
***********************************************
IIT (in Genova, Italy) is an English language institute; international applications are encouraged and will receive support with visa issues, etc. The Advanced Robotics (ADVR) Research Line offers state-of-the-art robot platforms and a top-level interdisciplinary research environment focused on robotics. 
The successful applicant will be fully funded for three years phD course on the focused research theme.
