Detail information about job Research Assistants/Associates in Robotic Vision and Navigation x 2. Terms and conditions vacancy
The Hamlyn Centre for Robotic Surgery in association with Department of Computing, Faculty of Engineering/Department of Surgery and Cancer, Faculty of Medicine
Fixed term positions up to 30th September 2018
Research Assistant salary: £32,380 to £34,040 per annum
Research Associate salary: £36,800 to £44,220 per annum
Applicants are invited to apply for two new vacancies at either Research Assistant (pre-doctoral) or Research Associate (post-doctoral) level for medical robot vision and navigation. The Hamlyn Centre is dedicated to developing safe, effective and accessible imaging, sensing and robotics technologies that can reshape the future of healthcare. Focusing on technological innovation but with a strong emphasis on clinical translation and direct patient benefit with a global impact, the centre is at the forefront of research in imaging, sensing and robotics for addressing global health challenges associated with demographic, environment, social and economic changes.
The positions are created by a major EPSRC Manufacturing in Healthcare Technologies grant to the Centre for developing novel robotic platform for creating personalised stent graft for endovascular intervention. The project involves the development of a new stent-graft sewing robot incorporating cooperative control combined with a real-time vision system for automatic 3D manufacturing. The project is to be carried out by a multidisciplinary team with complementary research skills in robotics, sensing, imaging, and endovascular intervention.
We are looking for outstanding applicants in any of the following areas of research:
- Robotic vision, particularly in real-time 3D vision systems;
- Medical image computing and image guided intervention, particularly for cardio-vascular procedures;
- Statistical shape modelling and ideally with combined skills in computational fluid dynamics simulation and analysis.
Experience in system integration and practical clinical/in vivo deployment would be an advantage.
For a Research Assistant level position you must have a Masters degree (or equivalent) in Electronic Engineering, Computer Science, Biomedical Engineering, Physics, Chemistry/Biochemistry, or a related discipline. For a Research Associate position you must have a PhD degree (or equivalent) in related disciplines. You will need to have considerable experience in interdisciplinary research and managing large integrated development projects.
Applicants with strong experience and a proven track record in one or more of the above research areas are encouraged to apply. A high level of analytical and computing skills is required. Preference will be given to applicants with a proven research record and publications in relevant areas. Applicants must be fluent in English. The position is based at the South Kensington campus.
