Postdoctoral fellow in medical robotics

The Surgical Mechatronics Laboratory (SML) is a part of the Robotics Institute at Carnegie Mellon University, and conducts research in robotics for surgical and other biomedical applications, with a focus on systems with minimal obtrusiveness with regard to clinical workflow, small footprint, ease of use, and low cost.  The SML has active collaborations with surgeons and other clinicians from the University of Pittsburgh, Johns Hopkins University, and Allegheny General Hospital.

Job description:
The SML has an immediate opening for a postdoctoral fellow in medical robotics with an annual contract.  You will be directly responsible for numerous aspects of development of an electromagnetic tracker system for handheld surgical robotics, with emphasis on implementing C++ real-time code in embedded Linux, including Kalman filter development for rejection of metallic interference.  This is an open hardware project, see https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__github.com_robmacl_ilemt-5Fhw_wiki&d=DwIFAw&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=2GAzD5gO6fi2T0z9PvY0zEdu7wlFVNFuCnt_-34GQvc&s=rqu0XSyipCVTK1FD7df0bWKVsyDFA3dNht3DcA3rJA4&e=  for additional information.  You will collaborate with a team of graduate and undergraduate students, research staff, and clinicians, and will also be involved in various aspects of the Micron project, which deals with handheld robotic systems for accuracy enhancement in ophthalmic microsurgery and microneurosurgery.


  *   Ph.D. in computer science or engineering
  *   Strong C++ coding skills. Linux experience a big plus
  *   Experience in robotics and/or applied control, including Kalman filtering
  *   Electronics skills are a plus

This position is available immediately.  Interested candidates should send a CV, list of references, and relevant publications (as a single PDF file), and also a C++ code sample of at least 5000 lines. Contact Prof. Cameron Riviere (camr at ri.cmu.edu).
