About This PhD Project

Project Description

To start before Oct 2017

Studentship: Untaxed bursary of £16,296 per annum (2015/16 figure including London weighting) and home/EU fees

The Hamlyn Centre was established for developing safe, effective and accessible imaging, sensing and robotics technologies that can reshape the future of healthcare for both developing and developed countries. Focusing on technological innovation but with a strong emphasis on clinical translation and direct patient benefit with a global impact, the centre is at the forefront of research in imaging, sensing and robotics for addressing global health challenges associated with demographic, environment, social and economic changes.

In addition to its core research activities, the Centre offers comprehensive PhD and MRes programmes for researchers with a strong technical or clinical background. These programmes are designed to develop cutting edge, disruptive technologies and blue-sky ideas; yet will be appropriate and accessible to all countries for addressing different needs of the healthcare challenges with a common ground for technological innovations.

We are looking for candidates with a strong academic background (with a first class degree) or MSc in medical robotics related subjects including computer science, physics, electronic engineering, mechanical engineering or biomedical engineering, particularly with extensive project experiences in:

• Mechatronics – design, modelling and simulation
• Robotics – control and kinematic analysis

Experience in medical device design and multi-disciplinary collaboration would be an advantage. Applicants with strong experience and a proven track record in one or more of the above research areas are encouraged to apply. Strong analytical and computing skills are essential.


How to apply:

Please send the following before 20th March, 2017 to Ms Raphaele Raupp () with subject reference of your email as Hamlyn-Robotics-2017 and to include:

• A full CV plus transcripts of all degree results
• A 2-3 page statement indicating why your expertise is relevant
• Two recent letters of reference
