The Dynamic Legged Systems lab is constantly looking for enthusiastic students and professionals who would like to contribute to the efforts of the group in the development of the state-of-the-art quadruped robots. In case there aren't any positions available feel free to write an email with an open application to firstname.lastname@example.org
PhD positions overview
All PhD positions at IIT-DLS are performed under the double affiliation between IIT and the University of Genova (UniGE).
Every year, the Dynamic Legged Systems lab has open PhD positions in the PhD Program Bioengineering and Robotics (Curriculum: Advanced and Humanoid Robotics (Code 8635)) of the Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (IIT), a research institute that uses English as main language. All the positions are fully funded.
To join the DLS lab the prospective PhD student should apply for those positions that have Claudio Semini in the list of the supervisors. In the 2021 application round there is only one position with theme number 29 in the curriculum .
Open PhD positions
Curriculum: Advanced and Humanoid Robotics (Code 8635, theme 29)
DLS is currently working on the implementation of computer vision (CV) algorithms for a range of diverse applications for quadruped robots (stair climbing, terrain mapping, obstacle avoidance, visual servoing (VS), automatic sensor calibration, state estimation, among others). Autonomous legged robots are required to handle a wide range of tasks in complex environments.
Current CV algorithms are not robust in dynamic environments, however, using CV is critical to improving autonomy. It is well known that video images provide rich information about the environment which is critical for localization in environments without a priori maps. For example, such uncertainty in environment would be expected in monitoring a disaster scene.
PhD application guidelines
In addition to the official online application, interested candidates should send their CV, a letter of motivation, the research theme and the university transcripts to email@example.com, and firstname.lastname@example.org, including the tag [PHD2021] in the email's subject line.
**Attention**: For a valid application, it is required that you fill the "Università Degli Studi Di Genova online application". All PhD courses at IIT are organized in collaboration with the University of Genoa. Information on the official PhD call and the full details and information on the application procedure are published here:
