Opportunity for 2 PhD students

Dear all,
An exciting opportunity for 2 PhD students (fully funded for 4 years)
is available at University College London, as part of a flexible
surgical robotics project. We are looking for candidates with
background in robotics, computer science, and/or microelectronics and
sensing.
The students will join a vibrant team that is developing next
generation cognitive flexible micro-surgical robots. Our team enjoys
good funding from the European Research Council and the Academy of
Medical Sciences. Further, we are well linked with the UCL Institute of
Healthcare Engineering, and the newly founded Wellcome Trust EPSRC
Centre for Surgical and Interventional Sciences.
The positions are fully funded for 4 years, and come with travel and
consumables support. The university’s fees will be covered at the EU/UK
level. The expected start date is September 2017, but earlier start
dates may also be accommodated.
If you are interested, please send a CV, a statement of purpose, and
the name of 2 referees to Dr. Christos Bergeles (c.bergeles@ucl.ac.uk).
The final application will include maximum 3 reference letters and has
to be done through UCL’s official application system, PRISM.
