Dear prospective Candidates,

The Altair Robotics Laboratory of the University of Verona is looking for two new members to join the surgical robotics team to work within the ERC-ADG project ARS (Autonomous Robotic Surgery).

1. Real time reasoning and situation awareness in robotic surgery. This research will investigate the structure and the actual implementation of a real-time reasoning system that analyzes the data collected during simulated and real robotic interventions. The system should be able to compute the conditions determining the evolution of the surgical intervention, as well as identifying possible risk situations related to the patient conditions.

2.  Modeling and real time simulation of deformable anatomical environments.This research will analyze the best bio-mechanical model to represent a deformable organ, identify the most appropriate software formulation to implement the model and integrate the model into real-time anatomical simulator under development.

Applicants should submit the following documents:
- A short CV. Only CVs with considerable scientific achievements will be considered. Candidates should have an excellent track record of research; they should demonstrate the ability to grow into scientific/technological leadership roles.
- A statement on how the research topics will be addressed.
- A letter of presentation.
- Contacts of two supervisors/mentors who could act as references.

We offer a salary based on the candidate experience and capabilities and a state-of-the-art research environment, including a daVinci Research Kit.

Interested candidates should contact Paolo Fiorini (paolo.fiorini at univr.it<mailto:paolo.fiorini at univr.it>) as early as possible. Preliminary, in person interviews will be possible during ISMR19.
