In the spirit of the doctoral School on Bioengineering and Robotics the PhD Program for the curriculum "Cognitive Robotics, Interaction and Rehabilitation Technologies" provides interdisciplinary training at the interface between technology and life-sciences. The general objective of the program is to form scientists and research technologists capable of working in multidisciplinary teams on projects where human factors play a crucial role in technological development and design.

The 5 fellowships offered this year by the Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia as part of this curriculum will be assigned to the best applicants to one of the six themes offered within the curriculum, that can be found at the following address under the "Cognitive Robotics Interaction Rehabilitation technologies" Research themes: https://www.iit.it/phd-school/phd-school-genoa

Here you can find the direct link to the list of themes in: List of Themes (PDF): https://www.iit.it/phd-school-docs/phd-2020/722-cognitive-robotics-interaction-rehabilitation-technologies/file

The deadline for the application is at 12:00 (Italian time) of the 15th June 2020

The interested applicants can find more details on the application and unofficial tip & tricks page to the application process: https://www.iit.it/phd-school/phd-school-admission-guide

All IIT units involved in this curriculum are located in the "Erzelli" site of the Italian Institute of Technology and share research facilities including, besides two iCub humanoid Robots, a fully equipped motion capture room with simultaneous electromyography recording and force-platforms, a Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation Lab, an Electrophysiology Lab for EEG recording and meeting rooms.

The ideal candidates are students with a higher level university degree willing to invest extra time and effort in blending into a multidisciplinary team composed of neuroscientists, engineers, psychologists, physicists working together to investigate brain functions and realize intelligent machines, rehabilitation protocols and advanced prosthesis.

Interested applicants are encouraged to contact the perspective tutors for clarifications before submitting their application. International applications are encouraged and will receive logistic support with visa issues and relocation.

Within this curriculum, RBCS Robotics, Brain and Cognitive Sciences department sponsors:
*) Autonomous learning in human-robot interaction: towards transparent robot symbiosis in skill acquisition
*) The role of social signals in human-robot interaction in group
*) Cortical networks for affective communication in human robot interaction
*) Altered reality for rehabilitation and training of low-vision individuals
