We seek outstanding postdoctoral applicants to strengthen this expanding research group. A fully-funded position starting between November 2018 and January 2019 for the duration of one year, with possible extension, is available. We are looking for goal-oriented candidates with proven experience in mechanical design and control of surgical robots and advanced instrumentation. Candidates in the possession of a PhD in engineering on topics such as surgical robotics, medical image processing, design of medical devices, human-robot interaction, mechatronics or general robotics can apply.
The successful candidate will take a leading role in the work on robotic micro-surgery, both in ophthalmological, ENT or skull-base surgery and tackle both hard and software challenges. He/she will support PhD students active in these fields and will get the opportunity to identify new contributions in the respective fields. The successful candidate will have a large responsibility for these particular projects, but is also expected to pro-actively engage and collaborate with parallel activities in the research group.
Applications should contain a C.V., a cover letter describing research interests and goals, a full list of publications, copies of up to three relevant papers, and names and contact information for at least three references (expected to provide letters of recommendation).
