The Medical Physics & Biomedical Engineering Department at UCL is seeking to appoint a highly motivated Lecturer with expertise in engineering aspects of surgical and interventional sciences. The successful candidate will be part of the Wellcome/EPSRC Centre for Interventional and Surgical Sciences (WEISS) recently established at UCL, and will join a thriving Department that is committed to the highest standards of research and teaching.

WEISS brings together a large team of engineering and clinical experts working to develop new surgical, interventional and therapeutic technologies. These advances are going to create intuitive and highly personalised surgical platforms and interventions that enable more precise, less invasive procedures. The research is being developed with a wide range of clinical applications in mind, including vascular, paediatric, ophthalmic, neurological and robotic surgical interventions for cancer treatment. In particular, the Centre will advance engineering sciences in intraoperative imaging and sensing, data fusion and extraction, human-technology interfaces, tissue modelling, interventional instrumentation and surgical navigation. The new lecturer is expected to become an active member of this Centre and help to expand its research portfolio.

As well as leading collaborative research activities, the successful candidate will be expected contribute to the Department’s undergraduate and MSc taught programmes in Biomedical Engineering and Medical Physics, and to the supervision of PhD students.
