  Postdoctoral position in visuomotor control of catching and throwing –
  Rome, Italy


A postdoctoral position is available in the group led by Prof. Andrea 
d’Avella (a.davella at hsantalucia.it) in the Laboratory of Neuromotor 
Physiology directed by Prof. Francesco Lacquaniti, at the Santa Lucia 
Foundation in Rome, Italy. The researcher will be involved in ongoing 
studies performed under the interdisciplinary project CogIMon, funded by 
the H2020 program of the European Union. The project CogIMon aims at a 
step change in human-robot interaction, and comprises leading robotics, 
computational neuroscience, and human motor control European research 

Research will be focused on investigating strategies for prediction, 
coordination, and control during interactive human-human and human-robot 
catching and throwing. Experiments are conducted with real balls in a 
large motion capture setup and with virtual balls in an immersive 
multisensory virtual environment where ball impact is rendered with a 
haptic device, and human and robotic agents are simulated.

Applicants should have a PhD degree in a relevant discipline, a real 
interest in human sensorimotor control, and strong quantitative and 
programming skills. Experience with collection and analysis of 
experimental data, psychophysics in virtual environments, computer 
graphics and avatar animation are valuable assets.

Salary will be commensurate with experience. Applicants should provide a 
statement of research interests, a curriculum vitae, and contact 
information for references. The position is available starting on May 
1^st 2017 and open until filled.
