The Biorobotics Lab at the University of Washington has a new opening for a
postdoctoral research Associate (Postdoc) for at least 1 year in the area
of surgical innovations.  The successful candidate will be embedded within
a team of engineering Ph.D. students and clinicians working at the
interface between engineering and medicine.  Currently we have a major
focus on procedural planning and surgical motion analysis, as well as
device development for procedures in the head and neck, collaborating with
a team of 5 surgeons from ENT and Neurosurgery on a weekly basis.
 Applicants should apply to https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__apply.interfolio.com_56560&d=DwIFaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=EZzxnOCpPxxGPpYEzptWAep5EZcrEhxh9sc7rORxXxY&s=7Plle6rB8FhuteKqSexyBuWHQTc53MNcaV7d9QVrD9o&e=.
