rethinking standard procedures and accepted techniques. In this role, you will integrate

many disciplines and work closely with both surgeons and engineers to create a working

clinical solution. While working hands-on, you will be responsible for occasional software

and hardware maintenance of robotic test-bed systems and coordination of laboratory and

cadaver system testing.

engineering, computer engineering, or software engineering as well as a strong background

in programming (C, C++, TCL/TK), image-processing, robotics, and image-guided surgery.

An understanding of orthopedic surgery, biomechanics, and biomechanical engineering a

plus. Candidate must be highly motivated, able to work independently and with a team, and
