Position Detail

Computational Modeling for Directing Interventional and Surgical Therapies

Biomedical Engineering

One possibly two post-doctoral positions on projects focused on computational model-enhanced approaches for enhancing surgery in open, less invasive, and/or minimally invasive presentations is underway. This project involves the combination of computational models of soft tissue with intraoperative guidance and imaging technologies to create interactive displays to help navigate and localize surgical/interventional targets for navigation. In addition, within some projects, exploring locoregional therapeutic technologies is a direction in the investigation. Lastly, incorporating principles from interventional and surgical data science is also a direction to be investigated within the course of clinical bystander studies. The opportunity to translate research from the computer work-bench to the clinic is a primary goal within this work. The trainee must have excellent organizational skills. Opportunities to pursue grants and movement towards promotions are possible.

Qualifications: The position is for a post-doctoral research associate who has received a doctoral degree in biomedical-related area with expertise in image registration & processing, computer vision, computer modeling, numerical analysis, soft-tissue mechanics, bioelectric/biothermal/biomass transport, and/or three-dimensional digitization instrumentation. Good writing and communication skills are also needed. Coding and instrumentation skill sets are a must (preferred skill sets in python, C++). Willingness to work in the operating room for data collection is also desirable. 

Potential Start Date: As soon as possible.

Close Date: Until filled.
