We are a research lab of the Department of Informatics, Bioengineering, Robotics, and Systems Engineering (DIBRIS) of the University of Genova (
The University of Genoa offers a highly collaborative and stimulating
research environment with excellent opportunities for interactions and
training, also in collaboration with local companies and the Italian
Institute of Technologies.

Established in May 2012, DIBRIS is a university structure where research and education are based on Computer Science and Technology, Bioengineering, Robotics, and Systems Engineering. The mission of DIBRIS is to promote and facilitate the creation (research), transmission (education), and technology transfer of knowledge in these areas at the national and international levels.

DIBRIS has a long-date experience coordinating international research projects, including FP7, H2020, and Horizon Europe.

The position involves no formal teaching (unless the candidate wants to). It does involve, however, lab mentoring.
The salary – is rather competitive, considering the lower cost of living in Italy compared to other Countries. Also note tax incentives for researchers residing abroad who move to Italy to conduct their research. Check at if you are eligible.
