Ph.D. Openings on Endoscopic and Surgical Vision
WEB: http://ranger.uta.edu/~gianluca/research/ 

The ASTRA Robotics and Vision Lab at The University of Texas at 
Arlington, led by Prof. Gian-Luca Mariottini, has open positions in Fall 
2015 for exceptional Ph.D. candidates in Endoscopic and Surgical Vision.

Endoscopic cameras are widely adopted in many areas of medical robotics, 
e.g., for minimally-invasive robotic surgery or for cancer screening. As 
such, surgical vision is growing in popularity and is more an integral 
part of every endeavour in robotic surgery.
The general research areas for this application include:
- Computer Vision
- Machine Learning
- Vision-based Robotics

The ASTRA Robotics and Vision Lab conducts highly-interdisciplinary 
research in collaborates with several medical centers, academic and 
government institutions, as well as industry. The ASTRA Lab has also 
access to top facilities (a daVinci robot, endoscopes, etc.) For more 
information on the various research projects at the ASTRA Robotics and 
Vision, please visit:http://ranger.uta.edu/~gianluca/research/ 

We seek exceptional candidates with the following:
- B.S. or M.S. in Computer-Science, Electrical, or Mechanical Engineering.
- Strong mathematical background.
- Strong programming skills (C/C++, MATLAB).
- Previous expertise in any of the aforementioned areas (highly 
- Previous publications (Recommended but not required)

UT Arlington is located in the Dallas-Ft Worth metro area, 20 minutes 
from a major international airport, and offers competitive salaries for
