The Institute for Robotics and Cognitive Systems (www.rob.uni-luebeck.de) at
the University of Lübeck has 1 open PhD position in the area of medical
robotics and navigation.
The position will be part of the PhD program at the Graduate School for
Computing in Medicine and Life Sciences (www.gradschool.uni-luebeck.de). The
PhD position is funded for 3 years with a scholarship of 1250 EUR per month,
with possible increase.
Image guidance is a key prerequisite for precise, minimally invasive
interventions. However, tissue deformation frequently causes artifacts and must
be considered during navigation.
The project aims at combining different image modalities to compensate for the
deformation, e.g., estimate the tissue deformation caused by instruments or
probes. The project is a highly interdisciplinary effort with partners from
computer science, biomedical engineering, and medicine.
For further information regarding the project, please contact Prof. Dr.
Alexander Schlaefer ([hidden email]).
Students with a master's degree in computer science, mathematics, physics or
engineering are invited to apply for admission. Outstanding grades, a strong
background in signal and image processing, very good programming skills,
excellent analytical skills and a hands-on approach to problem solving are
expected. Experience in biomedical research is a plus.
A full application consists of: (1) a detailed CV, (2) a statement of
motivation, (3) degree certificates and grade transcripts.
Please, submit your application via email to [hidden email].
The application deadline is May 2, 2011. The ideal starting date is June 1,
