The Wiersma Lab (https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__wiersmalab.uchicago.edu&d=DwIBaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=MtOT3OTmDutILwydFBGvsAzapXDB_EvrpG97q6pu5gg&s=WMb9MWCW_--oNMXeOsPn8VLGL3QCzMeDY4rL_bePMAI&e=) has a Postdoctoral Fellow
opening for a NIH funded project on the development of a real-time robotic
head motion stabilization system based on 6DoF inverse kinematic robotics.
This project will be used for early clinical trial studies involving
precise patient positioning during stereotactic brain radiosurgery. During
the project the Postdoctorial Fellow will be expected to:

- Play a leading role in the design, construction, and clinical
implementation of the robotic device
- Provide leadership and mentoring to graduate and undergraduate students
- Publish papers in peer reviewed scientific journals and present at

It is expected that the successful candidate will have the following

- Hold a PhD in computer science, engineering, or physics
- Have hands on experience in the design and construction of multi-DoF
robotic systems
- Custom linear actuator design, construction, and control including
feedback mechanisms
- Robotic programming experience in C, python, or another suitable language

Qualified applicants should respond by e-mail as soon as possible to Dr.
Wiersma (rwiersma at uchicago.edu) with their CV and availability. The initial
appointment will be for one year with the possibility of extension. The
postdoc would be employed under the Biological Sciences Division (
