Medical robotics and surgical instrumentation;
Surgical vision and image guided intervention/therapy;
Pervasive sensing and surgical implants;
Clinical application and innovation in robot assisted minimally invasive surgery.

The post will be appointed at the Lecturer level but, for outstanding candidates, a higher level may be considered and commensurate remuneration agreed. The post is full-time and the appointee will have laboratory and office facilities at both the South Kensington campus and St Mary's campus sites of the Hamlyn Centre, working in close collaboration with other staff and students of the Faculty of Engineering and Medicine. Overall accountability of the post will be to Professor Yang and Professor Darzi.
