******************************************
Engineers for Legged Robot Project at IIT, Genova
******************************************

The Advanced Robotics Department (ADVR) and the Dynamic Legged Systems 
(DLS) Research Lines at IIT, Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia, an 
English-language research Institute, are seeking two highly motivated, 
full-time engineers with key development roles in the areas of Software 
(1st position) and electronics, electrical and embedded systems (2nd 
position).

*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 of a tele-operated quadruped 
vehicle with manipulator in collaboration with INAIL (Italy’s National 
Institute for Insurance against Workplace Injuries). *
*Info about the quadruped robot: https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__dls.iit.it_robots-2A&d=DwIDaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=1ldO3kIhaWSATp1EHHCWlKRpYUUsEGoMHOdKkYEQW4w&s=bugT7bM9C6kxeVgmNkA6krI51xcUa8CsSxadts_QKss&e=

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 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 of a high performance 6-DOF 
force feedback master and integration of a hand exoskeleton for 
dexterous haptic tele-manipulation; and (4) development of novel user 
interaction interfaces for intuitive teleoperation using augmented and 
virtual reality systems.

Further details about the position and the application procedure can be 
found at the below links. The deadline for applications is March 4th, 2018.
