Whereas navigation has become standard of care for neurosurgical procedures, navigation in craniomaxillofacial (CMF) surgery is less common. The recent introduction of mixed reality has further advanced navigation, enabling direct vision of complex structures inside the patient. Such approaches have great potential in (complex) CMF surgery and neurosurgery and may both enable better training and deliver safer surgery. In this project we will develop and evaluate mixed reality navigation for CMF. To the end, we will address the key components required for navigation: patient-to-model alignment and patient tracking, integration of mixed reality (via e.g. the Hololens) in the navigation, and tracking using video-images from the Hololens.
For this PhD position, we are looking for candidates with an MSc degree in a relevant engineering discipline, such as Electrical Engineering, Computer Sscience or Biomedical Engineering. Experience with augmented reality, segmentation/ registration techniques as well as advanced machine learning approaches such as deep learning is an advantage. You should have programming experience and be able to work in a multi-disciplinary team. Strong theoretical skills and affinity with experimental work are required.
Being able to present a certificate of good conduct, a valid proof of identity, diploma's and/ or relevant registration such as BIG/ RGS are conditions for the appointment.
ConditionsYou will receive a temporary position for 4 years. The gross monthly salary is € 2.279 ,- (as per August 2018) in the 1st year and increases to € 2.919,- in the 4th year (scale OIO). The terms of employment are according to the Collective Bargaining Agreement for Dutch University Medical Centers (CAO UMC).
