Commitment & contract: Postdoc – Duration 24 months
At IIT we work enthusiastically to develop human-centered Science and Technology to tackle some of the most pressing societal challenges of our times and transfer these technologies to the production system and society. Our Genoa headquarters are strictly interconnected with the other 11 centers around Italy and two outstations based in the US. We promote excellence in basic and applied research such as neuroscience and cognition, humanoid technologies and robotics, nanotechnology, materials for a truly multidisciplinary scientific experience.
The Soft Biorobotics Perception Research Line is led by Dr. Lucia Beccai. You will be working in a multicultural and multi-disciplinary group and collaborate with the team to carry out common research within outstanding facilities.
The post is based on a research project funded by the European Union's Horizon Europe Research and Innovation Programme entitled “Morphing Computerized mats with Embodied Sensing and Artificial Intelligence - MOZART” - (Grant Agreement No. 101069536, https://mozart-robotics.eu/) coordinated by ITU Copenhagen in which SBRP is a Partner. MOZART project aims to develop general-purpose, AI-powered robot technology for the handling of soft objects with specific demonstrators in the food processing industry. The focus is on the implementation of a new generation of soft robotics that can work side-by-side with humans and complement the workforce pushing the boundaries of food industry towards economic, social, and environmental sustainability.
For this post, the research aim is to design, fabricate and test innovative fully integrated sensing solutions for food manipulation.
