Duties and Responsibilities

Applicants are invited to apply for the position of Research Associate in an internationally leading research centre in medical image computing and image-guided interventions. 

The post is funded for 2 years in the first instance, and is available immediately. 

The aim of the research is to develop novel software-based technologies for guiding minimally invasive surgery. The role is widely scoped with opportunities to enhance the capabilities of our laparoscopic liver surgery system, and to deliver a new platform for clinical molecular imaging.

Key Requirements

Experience in the design, development and validation of surgical software and guidance systems, strong collaborative software engineering skills using languages such as C++, and a record of publishing in high-impact, peer-reviewed academic journals are essential. 

Experience with relevant open source software toolkits, such as ITK and MITK, GPU programming using CUDA or OpenCL and working closely with clinicians in a hospital environment, are highly desirable but not essential. Applicants must have a PhD, or expect to receive the award of PhD before the post is taken up or have equivalent experience and must also be able to demonstrate strong mathematical and problem solving skills.
