The vacancies are created by a major EPSRC grant to the Centre for developing the future generation of medical robotics by anticipating the paradigm shift brought forward by precision medicine – the need for intervention at microscopic scales to ensure effective management of early malignancies and navigation with smart actuation through in situ, in vivocellular level imaging and sensing. It harnesses different strands of engineering and clinical developments in micro-robotics for precision surgery and to establish platform technologies for endoluminal micro-surgical intervention with broad values across different surgical specialties.  The positions are based at the South Kensington campus.

We are looking for outstanding applicants in any of the following areas of research:

  • Biosensor design, functionalization and fabrication
  • Microsystems (including micro-fluidics, drug-delivery, micro-implants, and lab-on-chip technologies)
  • Fibre-optics and Biophotonics

Experience in system integration and practical clinical/in vivo deployment would be an advantage.

You must have a PhD degree (or equivalent) in related disciplines. You will need to have considerable experience in interdisciplinary research and managing large integrated development projects.

Applicants with strong experience and a proven track record in one or more of the above research areas are encouraged to apply. A high level of analytical and computing skills is required.  Preference will be given to applicants with a proven research record and publications in relevant areas. Applicants must be fluent in English.
