Image-Guided Medical Robotics group, a collaboration between the
Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Massachusetts General Hospital and
Brigham and Women's Hospital currently has an opening to join our dynamic
team that is developing image-guided robots for accurate and efficient tumor


Requirements include a Ph.D. in computer science, mechanical engineering, or
electrical engineering.  A solid background in medical image processing and
algorithm development is essential, including past experience with
implementation on robotic systems.  Strong experimental skills and
proficiency with Matlab, Simulink, and C/C++ is also required. Expertise in
control theory is desirable. 
Future research work will involve registration, segmentation and developing
user interfaces for controlling robots using information in the medical
imaging data. There will be a large focus on developing systems that are
appropriate for clinical use.


The position is available from January, 2011, for a period of 12 months,
with a possible extension for an additional 6-12 months.


Applicants should send a cover letter that briefly describes their
background and career plans, a CV, and the names and contact information for
