Title: Postdoc in Computer Vision for Surgical NavigationPosted: June 25, 2013
Company/Institution: Johns Hopkins University
Location: Laboratory for Computational Sensing and Robotics
Department: Computer Science

Description: A multi-year post-doctoral position in computer vision for surgical navigation is available at Johns Hopkins University. The goal of this NIH-funded project is to develop methods that support registration of endoscopic video sequences to preoperative images for the purpose of anatomic visualization and measurement. The overall goal is to demonstrate that computer vision can be used as a reliable tool in endoscopic surgery.

The ideal candidate for this position would have a background in video motion analysis, reconstruction and registration, and would take a lead role in the team of students and faculty developing advanced vision and visual feedback tools. The project role will require significant engineering contributions, including technology testing on phantoms and on retrospective patient data. The position also involves significant collaboration with other engineering faculty, post-docs and students, and surgeons in the research.

Candidates must have a PhD and prior engineering experience. Graduates of a biomedical engineering program with an interest in moving in a clinical engineering direction are especially encouraged to apply. More information on this project, including prior publications, can be found at .

This project will take place in the Laboratory for Computational Sensing and Robotics (LCSR) LCSR is home to 80 faculty, students, postdocs, and staff, and is known as one of the preeminent institutions worldwide integrating engineering and medicine. The chosen candidate will also be encouraged to seek out new research opportunities within LCSR and to develop independent research projects.

Application Instructions: The position is available immediately and funding is available for multiple years. Although the initial appointment will be for one year, it is expected that the individual will be offered an appointment for subsequent years, based on adequate performance.
Interested persons should submit a CV and the names of 3 references to Greg Hager ( Johns Hopkins University is an Equal Opportunity Employer.
