Research Associate in Image-Guided Ophthalmic Surgery
Research Associate in Image-Guided Ophthalmic vacancy for candidate with skills in medical image processing to develop medical imaging algorithms for intraoperatively assisting in retinal stem cell delivery.
This is an exciting opportunity for a researcher with skills in medical image processing to join an internationally leading university research group.
The goal of this project is to develop image guidance algorithms for manual and robotic ophthalmic surgery. The end goal of the research is to use the developed algorithms in the operating theatre to guide the placement of sight-restoring stem cells. The Post-Doctoral Research Associate (PDRA) will be involved in the design and development of real-time non-rigid registration algorithms that combine pre-operatively acquired OCT volumes with intraoperative microscopy images to visualise subcutaneous information through augmented reality. The PDRA will be responsible for algorithm development, testing, and deployment to the operating theatre.
The postholder will be employed by the Institute of Ophthalmology, and will closely collaborate with the Translational Imaging Group (TIG) of the Centre for Medical Image Computing, having access to TIGs software frameworks and computational resources.
Closing date for applications: 21st February 2017
