My Lab (https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__stormlabuk.com_&d=DwIFAg&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=bo2nWrsSJzU561v8NBLXv2_j6S5urk1u0Xhf20Nrebo&s=kha9TVnjI0kSlmruwJsz3GV8gApWDVD-Wu085fyURH0&e=) in the School of Electronic and Electrical Engineering at the University of Leeds is looking for a highly motivated post-doctoral fellow with interest in surgical robotics.

The research activity is part of a major 5-year EPSRC Programme grant to the STORM Lab aiming to deliver ultrasonic devices for minimal access interventional surgery via a soft, flexible and compliant robotic manipulator through winding and convoluted pathways. This collaborative grant has partners at the Universities of Birmingham, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Southampton. The post-doctoral fellow will be integrated in a team of enthusiastic and highly motivated researchers and will also be able to pursue his/her own creative ideas.

The profile of the ideal candidate includes
- A PhD in one of the following disciplines: Mechanical Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, Computer Science, Electronic Engineering, or Robotics;
- Experience and a proven track-record in at least one of the following areas (with peer-reviewed publications in high-impact-factor journals): soft robots, continuum robots, continuum manipulators, capsule robots, surgical instrumentation, magnetic manipulation, robotic manipulators;

The position has a duration of two years and is renewable until 2023.

Deadline for application is Tuesday 30 October 2018 for a start date by the end of 2018.
