Graduate Research Assistantships in COMPUTER INTEGRATED SURGERY at Queen’s University
The Perk Lab (Laboratory for Percutaneous Surgery) is open for Graduate Research Assistants in various projects and research areas, such as:
We are looking for smart, dedicated and goal-oriented graduate students with background in electrical engineering, computing, mechanical engineering, or biomedical engineering. We are admitting students into the Master’s of Science and PhD programs. We provide full financial support (free tuition, research assistantship, and teaching assistantships.)
Our students have excellent collaborative opportunities with a diverse group of multidisciplinary researchers from medical robotics, medical imaging, image processing, computational mechanics, image modeling, and analysis; as well as with a large pool of clinical collaborators. The Perk Lab is seamlessly fused with the Medical Image Analysis Laboratory, we share space, resources, tools, computers and most importantly “gray matter”. There is also a cadre of superbly trained professional staff research engineers who assist our students’ research.
Primary external research interactions will take place with the Center for Computer Integrated Surgery (www.cisst.org) and Laboratory for Computational Sensing and Robotics (www.lcsr.jhu.edu) at the Johns Hopkins University and National Alliance for Biomedical Computing (www.na-mic.org) at the Harvard Brigham and Women’s Hospital, as well as with over a dozen institutions worldwide in the USA, Europe and Asia, with opportunities for internships and various kinds of research sorties.
