*Two Senior Post-Docs @ PRISMA Lab & ICAROS Center in Naples*

The PRISMA Lab and ICAROS Center at the University of Naples Federico II 
are seeking to recruit *_two senior postdoctoral research fellows_* that 
will have a key research role in one of the following areas:

•    Automatic control with particular focus on manipulation control, 
human-robot interaction, teleoperation control, shared control and 
haptics for surgical and rehabilitation robotics
•    Vision control of surgical systems, with knowledge in image 
processing, machine Learning and deep learning, deformations modeling 
applied to medical images
•    Augmented reality and virtual reality, 3D model technology from 
medical images for pre-operative planning

The successful candidates will conduct their research at the ICAROS 
Center and PRISMA Lab in the field of medical robotics. We are looking 
for highly-motivated young scientists with a background and PhD in 
automatic control and/or robotics and computer science, preferably with 
at least two years of experience abroad, and a well-established 
publication record on these topics:

•    Automation in surgical robotics
•    Interaction control and shared control in medical robotics
•    Grasping and manipulation
• 3D scene reconstruction, virtual reality and augmented reality for 
robot-aided surgery

Strong competencies in C/C++/ROS programming and MATLAB are essential.

Qualified potential applicants holding a PhD degree should provide the 
following material:

1.    Cover letter briefly describing their background and career plans
2. CV
3.    Link to their research web-site
4.    List of publications
5.    Date of availability
6.    Names and contact information of at least two references

All documents should be submitted via email as a single compressed/pdf 
file to *Prof. Bruno Siciliano **_siciliano at unina.it_* with the subject: 
POSTDOC CANDIDATE (Medical Robotics)

*About PRISMA Lab and ICAROS Center*
University of Naples Federico II is the third oldest university in Italy 
and the oldest public university in Europe. The School of Engineering, 
with a population of 9,000 students, is the oldest in Italy and 
celebrated its second centennial since the foundation by King Gioacchino 
Murat in 1811. The PRISMA team operates in the Department of Electrical 
Engineering and Information Technology, where since almost 30 years is 
conducting research in robotics. Current interests include force 
control, visual servoing, dual-arm/hand manipulation, human-robot 
interaction, aerial robotics and surgical robotics. The team has gained 
world-wide recognition and is currently engaged in six projects 
supported by the European Community. See www.prisma.unina.it, 
www.icaros.unina.it/ for further information.

*About Naples*
Naples is the third largest city in Italy, and is the capital of the 
Campania region. World-known for its rich history, art, culture, 
architecture, music and gastronomy, Naples is a lively, exciting and 
bustling city on the southwest coast in a gorgeous gulf, and is 
surrounded by attractive tourist and archaeological sites such as Capri, 
Ischia, Amalfi Coast, Pompei, Ercolano, Mount Vesuvius.

*Salary and Duration*
The positions are full time and will be paid according to the current 
Italian scheme. Salary will be determined depending on the level of 
experience and research seniority of the individual candidate. Duration 
will be initially for one year with the option to extend for two more 
years, depending on work record. Positions are available immediately and 
will remain open until a suitable number of strongly qualified 
candidates are selected.
