Robotic-guided Intra-cochlear Diagnostics

项目介绍

Within the framework of the KU Leuven interdisciplinary project CHARIOT involving the groups of Experimental Oto-rhino-laryngology (ExpORL) in collaboration with University Hospitals Leuven), the Robotic Assisted Surgery, and the Soft Matter and Biophysics, we are looking for highly motivated candidates to fill in a fully-funded, 4-year PhD position.

Project

The PhD candidate will be involved in the development of an innovative robotic tool for human inner ear diagnostics, aiming to gain unprecedented insight into cochlear microstructures.The envisioned work will include the use and development of robotic devices as well as sensing and processing techniques for collecting, registering and interpreting medical images.The unique combination in this project by 3 research groups with expertise in the field of hearing research, robotics with optics and biophysics will greatly improve the outcome of cochlear implantations in our patients. 

Profile

The PhD position is co-tutored by the ExpORL and the Robotic Assisted Surgery groups. While an engineering background is sought, affinity, or willingness to get proficient with the medical scenario,is requested.

The candidate is required to hold a Master Degree in Engineering or similar with a solid background in at least one of the following fields:

–       Mechatronic design / Robotics

–       Image analysis (possibly medical imaging)

Examples of suitable candidates are:

–       Bio-medical engineers

–       Mechatronic engineers with a strong interest in biomedical applications.

The PhD candidate is expected to gain a profound knowledge of the physiology of the inner ear and the hearing mechanisms,  as well as understand the crucial elements of surgical procedures for cochlear implant positioning.

The candidate should be highly motivated and interested in undertaking innovative and challenging research  activities involving extensive experimental activities at the hospital site,including ex-vivo and in-vivo data-gathering and labelling campaigns.

Research will entail development and control of a robotic-guided intra-cochlear diagnostics system.

Proficiency in spoken and written English is required.

Ability to work in team is required.

Offer

4-years fully funded PhD position.The enrolment is foreseen in October 2021.

Interested?

Please provide:

–       A letter of interest,

–       A CV, and

–       Reference letter(s), if possible.
