  • MIXED REALITY SURGICAL SIMULATION
CONTACT:       Dr. Bertram Unger, Director
                          Laboratory for Surgical Modeling, Simulation and Robotics
                          ungerb@umanitoba.ca 
The Laboratory for Surgical Modeling, Simulation and Robotics is seeking a Post-doctoral student to supervise the development of a Mixed Reality Surgical Simulation involving temporal bone surgery. The simulation will incorporate 3D printed temporal bones generated from microCT data. Surgical information and guides will be superimposed on the bone samples using augmented reality techniques to guide ENT trainees in appropriate surgical procedures. A mixture of haptic and printed bones, together with a graphic overlay will provide additional realism and permit real-time feedback to the user based on force and motion data.
The qualified candidate will have a graduate degree in either engineering or computer science and possess a strong background in software development focused on graphics and VR. A background in mechanical systems and force-feedback as it pertains to haptic display is also an advantage. A background in biomedical engineering, biology or anatomy are desired but not essential.
The successful candidate will be expected to lead a team of graduate students in software development and project design, oversee laboratory operations, write papers and grant proposals and develop new areas of research. A salary, consistent with University of Manitoba guidelines will be offered. The position is offered for a two year period with further employment contingent on funding availability.
