Hackerman 112, 3400 N. Charles St., Baltimore, MD 21218, USA

The Laboratory for Computational Sensing and Robotics (LCSR) at the Johns
Hopkins University (JHU) is seeking applicants for a Postdoctoral Research
Fellow position that is immediately available.

The position involves work on a collaborative project with the Surgical
Planning Laboratory at the Department of Radiology of Brigham and Women's
Hospital: development of a clinically optimized 4DOF prototype actuated
robot (slave system) for MR-guided prostate needle intervention. The
candidate will have excellent collaborative opportunities with a diverse
group of multidisciplinary researchers from medical robotics, medical
imaging, image processing, computational mechanics, image modeling, and

Applicants should have a PhD degree in engineering (mechanical, electrical,
robotics, or mechatronics), or a closely related field. Relevant experience
and skills in mechanical design (including CAD software), medical robotics,
medical instrumentation, as well as multi-platform computer programming
skills (MATLAB and/or C++) are essential. Research experience (academic or
industrial) in the MRI-compatible systems would be highly beneficial. Good
communication and writing skills and a willingness to work in a
multidisciplinary collaborative environment are required.

The position is expected to be for 12 months and has the potential to be
extended for suitably qualified candidates if skills, interest, performance,
and budget allow. This position is immediately available and will start at a
mutually agreed upon date. All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply.

Each applicant should include a cover letter highlighting his/her
suitability for this position, three references, up to three selected
preprints/reprints most relevant to this position, and a recent curriculum
vitae. For information about the application process, contact Dr. Iulian
Iordachita ( <mailto:iordachita at jhu.edu> iordachita at jhu.edu). JHU is an
equal opportunity employer.
