Post-Doc opening in physical human-robot interaction

The Human-Robot Interfaces and physical Interactions Research Line (HRI2 lab) of Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (IIT), is looking for a highly motivated and ambitious postdoctoral researcher to conduct studies on dynamic modelling of humans during physical interactions with collaborative robots and the external world.

The project will take advantage of the powerful robotics tools (e.g., humanoids theory) for the analysis and synthesis of human movements and interactions.

The successful candidates will work on the ERC project Ergo-Lean GA 850932, which aims to improve human ergonomics in highly dynamic human-robot-environment interactions. The HRI2 Lab is known for its cutting-edge research in the areas of human-robot interaction and collaboration, teleoperation, and assistive robotics. More information is available at www.hri.iit.it<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__www.hri.iit.it_&d=DwIFAg&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=uc3yHk8pMvbxwlNZ_E7eYU0HVsMzeBm03p9IkUkqYOk&s=gwVGu4wvEC6yDtaFTV2sHjRE0owdgDzuYtw4_zuDbmE&e= >

The ideal candidate must have a PhD degree and a strong background in human biomechanics or humanoid robot kinematic and dynamic modelling, and/or physical human-robot interaction.
The successful candidate should have:

  *   Strong skills on C++ and Python
  *   Experience with ROS
  *   Confidence with version control tools (specifically git)
  *   Good communication skills and ability/willingness to integrate within a multidisciplinary international research group
  *   Good knowledge of written and spoken English.

The salary will depend on qualifications and experience and will include additional health benefits.

To apply please send electronically your detailed CV, university transcripts and cover letter outlining motivation, experience and qualifications for the post and name and contacts of 2 referees to applications at iit.it<mailto:selezioni at iit.it> and arash.ajoudani at iit.it<mailto:arash.ajoudani at iit.it> by December 26th, 2019 stating "HRII-PD-EL CB 77867" in the subject of the e-mail.
