Description:Applicants are invited to apply for a new vacancy in surgical vision for optical biopsy during image guided surgery and robotically assisted intervention. The position has been created due to an exciting new strategic partnership between the Hamlyn Centre and Mauna Kea Technologies for developing the next generation computer vision techniques for the use of optical biopsy based on the MKT Cellvizio technology platform. The goal of this position is to develop novel vision navigation and re-targeting capabilities to improve the optical biopsy procedure and make it completely intuitive to clinicians of all specialties.

We are looking for candidates with strong expertise in the following areas:

  • 3D computer vision, particularly in Structure-from-Motion and SLAM (simultaneous localisation and mapping)
  • Image guided surgery, particularly in intra-operative registration, augmented reality and real-time visualisation/navigation systems.

Eligibility: Applicants should have a PhD degree (or be near to completion) in Computing, Engineering, Physics or other relevant subject with practical experience in real-world applications. Candidates without a PhD will be appointed at Research Assistant level.

Preference will be given to applicants with a proven research record and publications in computer vision and medical image computing. Applicants must be fluent in English and can work effectively in a multidisciplinary research environment. The positions are based at the Hamlyn Centre, which has dedicated engineering and clinical research facilities at the South Kensington Campus and the St Mary’s Campus.

The Hamlyn Centre is dedicated to developing safe, effective and accessible imaging, sensing and robotics technologies that can reshape the future of healthcare. Focusing on technological innovation but with a strong emphasis on clinical translation and direct patient benefit with a global impact, the centre is at the forefront of research in imaging, sensing and robotics for addressing global health challenges associated with demographic, environment, social and economic changes.
