3 X Research Assistants/Research Associates in Image Guided Surgery and Robotics
Hamlyn Centre for Robotic Surgery, Imperial College London, UK
Closing date: Extended to 3rd January 2013
Applicants are invited to apply for 3 new vacancies in image guided surgery and robotics at either Research Assistant (pre-doctoral) or Research Associate (post-doctoral) level. These posts are jointly funded by the Department of Health and the Wellcome Trust. The purpose of the project is to develop the next generation robot assisted microscopic image guided endoluminal surgery. It involves the development of a novel microscopic surgical platform with a greater degree of precision and accuracy for cancer surgery through integrated sensing, probe-based microscopic imaging and robotic intra-operative guidance.
We are looking for candidates with strong expertise in ANY of the following areas
o Medical robotics particularly in the design and implementation of flexible, articulated robot for minimally invasive surgery;
o Image guided surgery particularly in surgical vision, intra-operative registration, augmented reality and real-time visualisation/navigation systems;
o Novel surgical instrument design, miniaturisation and integration of sensing for minimally invasive surgery.
Preference will be given to applicants with a proven research record and publications in relevant areas. Applicants must be fluent in English. The positions are based at the Hamlyn Centre, which has dedicated engineering and clinical research facilities at the South Kensington campus and St Mary's campus of Imperial College.
For an informal discussion please contact Karen Kerr email: k.kerr at imperial.ac.uk.
