Research Assistant – Computer Assisted Interventions
Research in the newly established Department of Surgical and Interventional Engineering, focusing on developing novel image-guided surgical robots for micro-precise interventions. Two primary activities relating to Fetal Surgery, via the GIFT-Surg (Guided Instrumentation for Fetal Therapy and Surgery) project, an Vitreoretinal Surgery, via a set of grants and a strong collaboration with Moorfields Eye Hospital.
These projects are looking for a research assistant to complement their multidisciplinary team and undertake research on computer vision and visual servo control of robotically controlled surgical instruments.
The post involves close and active collaboration with researchers, engineers and clinicians to identify clinical requirements and to design and develop clinical-grade software that will address those.
You will design, develop and translate real-time modular software components for medical image processing, machine learning and visualisation, and also interface those with existing software and hardware components.
The successful candidate will have sound knowledge of machine learning, computer vision algorithms, robotics, control schemes and experience with using the C++ and Python programming languages.
