Postdoc in Augmented reality and AI-guided ventriculostomy
Program description
The Horizon postdoctoral fellow (HPDF) will be a member of the Applied Perception Lab and the Health-X Lab in the Department of Computer Science and Software Engineering. The aim of the research program is to develop and test a novel, low-cost and easily portable image-guidance system for ventriculostomy, one of the most frequent and lifesaving neurosurgical procedures. The HPDF will develop novel methods and software for transcranial ultrasound registration, tracking of surgical tools within the ultrasound images, improving the accuracy of vision-based tracking in commercial off the shelf hardware, and augmented reality and intuitively displaying the guidance and tracking information for the surgeon. The HPDF will have the opportunity to interact with our clinical partners. The developed system will enable widespread adoption, reduce complications resulting from human error, reduce the length of hospital stays, and in turn healthcare costs.

Academic qualifications required
PhD in Computer Science/Computer Engineering/Electrical Engineering,/Software Engineering with specialty in Human-Computer Interaction (HCI), Visualization, Computer Graphics, Medical Image Visualization or relevant experience. 

Excellent programming skills (C++, C# and Python); familiarity with VTK, OpenCV and/or Unity3D game engine; previous software development experience for Mixed reality and/or mobile devices is an asset; previous track record in hypothesis driven research; strong English writing and presentation skills.

Eligibility requirements
	• Applicants must not currently hold a postdoctoral appointment at Concordia
	• Priority will be given to postdoctoral fellows who have obtained their PhD from another university although in exceptional cases Concordia graduates may be considered
	• Applicants must adhere to the postdoctoral fellow eligibility criteria outlined in Concordia University’s Postdoctoral Policy
