The BU BioRobotics Lab is moving to Children's Hospital Boston in Spring
2010. In anticipation of this move, the following positions are available
immediately. 
 
Postdoctoral Fellow (Robot Control) ­ This position is to develop and
implement real-time control algorithms for complex medical robotic systems.
It is expected that the successful candidate will have a PhD in mechanical
engineering, electrical engineering or computer science. It is also expected
that the candidate will have hands-on experience in controller
implementation.
 
Postdoctoral Fellow (Image Processing) ­ This position is to develop
real-time algorithms using open-architecture 3D ultrasound systems to enable
robot navigation within the body. It is expected that the successful
candidate will have a PhD in electrical engineering or computer science and
have experience in medical image processing.
 
Robot Programmer ­ This position is to implement real-time control
algorithms for complex medical robotic systems. The successful candidate
will possess experience with robot control and the ability to thrive in a
research environment.
 
Our Lab's mission is to embed creative young engineers and scientists in one
of the world's leading pediatric hospitals. This ensures that we work on
clinically important problems and enables us to rapidly transition
engineering prototypes to a clinical setting for testing. More information
on our projects can be found at:

Qualified applicants should respond by email as soon as possible to Prof.
Pierre Dupont (Pierre.Dupont at childrens.harvard.edu) with a description of
their qualifications, academic background, PhD thesis, publications, career
goals and availability. The initial appointments will be for one year with
the possibility of extension. Postdoctoral appointments will be made through
Harvard Medical School.
