Closes:      17th July 2014
Job Ref: 1421367

Main Purpose of the Post:

UCL was recently awarded £10million to develop better tools and imaging techniques that will improve the success of surgery and other therapies on unborn babies in collaboration with KU Leuven, Great Ormond Street Hospital and University College London Hospital.

 

The successful candidate will design and develop an API to control and
drive the hardware components stemming from the project. This will require
wrapping the low-level hardware drivers into a high-level C++ library and
automating the different necessary hardware controls, e.g. calibration
pipeline, feedback loops, etc. The position does not require experience of
electronics development although understanding of the basis would be a plus.

 

In addition, the candidate will work on the integration of the existing
software building blocks into clinically usable software application. The main
challenge being to design lean graphical user interfaces to allow the
clinicians to drive the surgical platform.

 

The overall objective of the project is to go from bench to bedside to
first in-man clinical trials, the candidate will also contribute to other
software development and will ensure scalability of the designed software.

 

Key Requirements

The successful candidate will hold a PhD in medical imaging, computer
science or a closely related subject or have equivalent industry
experience. They will have strong expertise in object-oriented software
development in C++ and Python as well as the ability to work in
cross-platform environments (Mac OS, Linux, Windows, 32/64 bits setups)
with various compilers (e.g.
clang, icc, gcc, Visual C++). They will also have practical experience
of algorithm and cross-platform software development for medical image
computing, digital image processing and/or computer vision.

In order to be considered for a grade 8, the successful candidate will have significant experience within the field
