Hello All,

The Applied Research group at Intuitive Surgical has an opening for an internship in the area of augmented and mixed reality for robot-assisted surgery in 2019. Please see the job description and application details here: https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__careers.intuitivesurgical.com_jobs_182833-3Flang-3Den-2Dus&d=DwIGaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=k7gNdJB-YP3WlSier3tAwFtExc037-MRZ0Lc5s6XVRY&s=00mH8zFyM3QFq_t79YYo7NCXs22pVM6fsoizNvi8m6Q&e=

Job Title: Applied Research Intern

Department: Applied Research
Company Description:
Intuitive Surgical designs and manufactures state-of-the-art robot-assisted systems for use in minimally-invasive surgery. These systems are revolutionizing the way in which surgery is being done and offer a unique platform—that is being used routinely at hospitals worldwide—for exploring the potential of digital surgery. Joining Intuitive Surgical means joining a team dedicated to using technology to benefit patients by improving surgical efficacy and decreasing surgical invasiveness, with patient safety as our highest priority.


Must be concurrently enrolled in a degree-seeking program with an accredited university or enrolled in an upcoming program in the fall.

Primary Function of Position:

We are seeking a summer intern to join the Research team. The intern will assist in the implementation, documentation, and testing of the next generation product development environments.

Roles and Responsibilities:

·        Development and evaluation of high quality prototype concepts.

·        Development of novel Augmented Reality (AR) and Mixed Reality (MR) concepts to integrate with future products.

·        Development of a modular software framework to explore various AR and MR concepts on display technologies from various vendors.

·        Perform usability testing and generate reports that help guide the future development.

Skill/Job Requirements:

·        Computer science, Mechatronics, or Robotics focus.

·        Exposure to Virtual Reality (VR), Augmented Reality (AR) or Mixed Reality (MR) concepts, hardware, and tools.
