Build a research career with impact with a prestigious QUT Vice-Chancellor’s Research Fellowship (VCRF). Three-year fixed-term fellowships are available in a range of areas including Medical Robotics.

QUT is a highly successful, energetic and innovative university that is backing its aspirations with a significant and continuing investment in people, state-of-the-art infrastructure and collaborative work environments.

The Australian Centre for Robotic Vision (ACRV) is developing the underlying science, and technologies that will enable robots to see — to understand their environment using the sense of vision, and to perform useful tasks in the complex, unstructured and dynamically changing environments in which we live and work. The Centre’s partners are Queensland University of Technology, University of Adelaide, Australian National University and Monash University. International partners include Oxford University, Imperial College, French Institute for Research in Computer Science and Automation (INRIA), Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich (ETHZ) and Georgia Institute of Technology.

The successful applicant will help establish, and contribute to, the medical and health robotics research program, create profile for the Centre and themselves through: publishing in high-quality refereed journals and conferences; the creation of technology demonstrators and industry engagement; proactive outreach programs.

The Research Fellow will contribute to the Centre focus area of Medical and Health Robotics, where they will be responsible for bridging the gap between engineering and computer science focused Research Fellows of the Centre and medical practitioners, such as surgeons. The Research Fellow will work on a number of new projects all related to the use of computer vision in medicine and health and will be required to project manage new research projects in addition to undertaking research. 

The research will be highly multi-disciplinary in nature, teaming biologists, surgeons and roboticists.
