2 Postdoctoral Positions in Medical Robotics at Boston Children's Hospital, Harvard Medical School

We are seeking highly motivated researchers for the following projects: 

Robotic Catheters – This project involves creating novel robotic catheters to perform heart valve repair procedures. Important components of this project include the development of modeling and control algorithms, the design and integration of multi-modal sensing and tools as well as system evaluation through animal trials. Experience in medical robot modeling and prototyping is preferred. It is expected that the successful candidates will hold a PhD in engineering, physics or computer science.

Robotic Implants - This project involves creating robots that reside inside the body to modulate physiological functions, e.g., through application of forces or control of flow rates. Strong prototyping and system integration skills are needed. Experience in medical robotics is a plus. The ability to work collaboratively with clinicians is also important. It is expected that the successful candidates will hold a PhD in engineering, physics or computer science. 

Our Lab's mission is to embed creative young engineers and scientists in the #1 US pediatric hospital. This ensures that we work on clinically important problems and enables us to rapidly transition engineering prototypes to a clinical setting for testing. More information on our lab can be found at: https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__robotics.tch.harvard.edu&d=CwIGaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=2p44Zj-QfVpYx8i_Cku-s3RSfk0THo_heqOXx8gS-MY&s=haz62zjXGlYE3ftI6dlr0rY1iK3TiTPgErEtOoekSnc&e= 

Qualified applicants should respond by email as soon as possible to Prof. Pierre Dupont (Pierre.Dupont at childrens.harvard.edu) with a description of their qualifications, academic background, PhD thesis, publications, career goals and availability. They should specify which position they are interested in and include pdf’s of up to 3 publications. Initial appointments will be for one year with the possibility of extension. Postdoctoral appointments will be made through Harvard Medical School.
