The Robotics and Vision in Medicine Lab of the School of Biomedical Engineering and Imaging Sciences is seeking a highly organised, proactive individual to help develop imaging instrumentation to guide micro-surgical robots for regenerative therapy delivery within the human eye. This is an exciting opportunity for an enthusiastic person with experience in physics, optics, or optical systems engineering to join an internationally leading research team, and work on a project with clear emphasis on research for clinical translation and patient benefits.
The goal of this post is the research and development of optical systems for safe and effective visualisation at micro-metre scale in vitreoretinal surgery. Specifically, we are interested in exploring light-field imaging based intraoperative visualisation, with the possibility to expand research on complementary research directions (e.g. OCT).
The researcher will be part of a multi-disciplinary team that closely collaborates with clinicians from Moorfields Eye Hospital, and will have access to unique state-of-the-art infrastructure on Surgical and Interventional Engineering (including access to an optics lab, photoacoustics lab, and mock operating theatre).
