 Employer: The University of Twente.

 

 

JOB DESCRIPTION


The Surgical Robotics Laboratory in the Department of Biomechanical Engineering (Faculty of Engineering Technology at the University of Twente, The Netherlands has an opening for a Post-doctoral fellow within the research area of Surgical Robotics.

 

Research project description


Minimally invasive surgery has revolutionized medicine by enabling interventions without large incisions, thereby significantly improving clinical outcomes. Such surgical techniques include insertions of needles, catheters, and micro-robots. For effective medical diagnosis and treatment, the device must reach its intended target. In order to increase the targeting accuracy of the procedure and improve clinical outcomes, the goal of this research project is to develop methods for modeling and controlling a range soft/flexible surgical devices and medical microrobots, as they interact and navigate through the body. Techniques would be developed to track and control the path of the novel devices using images (MR and ultrasound imaging modalities).

The present project will be conducted within the Surgical Robotics Laboratory (http://www.surgicalroboticslab.nl) and the Department of Biomechanical Engineering (https://people.utwente.nl/s.misra). In addition there are excellent opportunities for collaboration with the University Medical Centre Groningen, and several institutions abroad.
