Research Associate or Research Fellow – Ultrasound-based Needle Tracking
Research in the newly established Department of Surgical and Interventional Engineering within the School of Biomedical Engineering and Imaging Sciences focuses on translating novel real-time multimodal imaging modalities in conjunction with novel surgical instrumentation to clinical practice. As part of this endeavour, the GIFT-Surg (Guided Instrumentation for Fetal Therapy and Surgery) project is looking for a Research Associate or Research Fellow to complement their highly multidisciplinary team.
The post-holder will lead on the development of novel computational imaging algorithms for ultrasound-guided needle procedures exploiting novel hardware sensors. The post involves close and active collaboration with other researchers, engineers, and clinicians to understand clinical and technical requirements for a novel medical imaging device that is being developed for a first clinical study. Familiarity with ultrasound imaging is an integral and essential aspect of this post.
This post will be offered on a fixed-term contract for 2 years
