IIT was established in 2003 and successfully created a large-scale infrastructure in Genova, a network of 10 state-of-the-art laboratories countrywide and recruited an international staff of about 1100 people from more than 50 countries. IIT's research endeavour focuses on high-tech and innovation, representing the forefront of technology with possible application from medicine to industry, computer science, robotics, life sciences and nanobiotechnologies.

The Department of Advanced Robotics at Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia, an English-language research Institute, is looking for an international strongly motivated full-time junior/senior post-doc with a key research role in the area of mechanical design in the Robo-Mate European project.

The selected candidate will join an interdisciplinary team and have the opportunity to pursue research within the Robo-Mate (Intelligent exoskeleton based on human-robot interaction for manipulation of heavy goods in Europe’s factories of the future) European project in partnership with a consortium encompassing twelve leading universities, research institutes and companies in Europe (http://www.robo-mate.eu/). The Robo-Mate project is funded under the 7th Research Framework Programme of the European Commission (FP7-2013-NMP-ICT-FOF, Grant Agreement n° 608979).

The goal of Robo-Mate is the development of a user-friendly intelligent light or mid-weight human-robotic exoskeleton for manual handling work in different industries. The device will be deployable within half a day and will not require task-specific programming. The newly developed exoskeleton will be highly flexible and used directly in craft or mass production or in auxiliary processes.

We are looking for a highly motivated, outstanding young scientist with a background and PhD in Robotics or Mechanical Engineering and an excellent, well established publication record in mechanical design.
