  • Research Associate in robotics at Hospital for Special Surgery

    Hospital for Special Surgery is a leading academic and world-renowned orthopedic and

    rheumatologic hospital in Manhattan. We currently have an opportunity for a 3 year research

    and clinical development fellowship at HSS, sponsored by z-kat, inc. This position will have

    the potential to become a permanent position with z-kat, inc. or HSS. The fellow will work

    directly with a novel haptic robotic system, focused on developing practical clinical

    applications in image-guided robotics for minimally invasive orthopedic surgery. The

    research will be driving the leading edge of orthopedic surgery technology and is aimed at

    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.

    The fellow must have a M.S. or Ph.D. in robotics, biomedical engineering, electrical

    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

    have a strong desire to help change surgical practice for the better through the use of

    advanced technologies. Candidate must currently reside in or within a reasonable

    commuting distance of Manhattan or be able to do so.
