Dear all,

The Wellcome EPSRC Centre for Interventional and Surgical Sciences is
seeking a post-doctoral research associate in Computer-Assisted
Interventions, for a 2+1 years appointment. Application closing date is
18th October 2017, and we are looking for a starting date in early 2018.

The Post-Doctoral Research Associate (PDRA) will be part of a vibrant team
that develops robots and algorithms for regenerative medical interventions
in confined spaces. More specifically, the funded project pertains to the
development of a micro-surgical robot for the implantation of
sight-restoring stem cells to the retina. This specific position aims at
developing the computer vision tools that enable image-guided delivery of
the said stem cells. The PDRA can be involved in the design and development
of real-time algorithms for tool segmentation, retinal image analysis,
multi-modal image registration, and the overall framework that provides the
computer-aided assistance during the robotic intervention. The PDRA will
have the opportunity to be involved in all aspects of algorithm
development, testing, and deployment to the operating theatre.

More information and application procedure can be found here:

You can personally contact me for informal inquires too.

Kind regards,
