The Wellcome / EPSRC Centre for Interventional and Surgical Sciences (WEISS) at UCL brings together a wide team of engineering and clinical experts working to develop new surgical technologies. These advances are going to create intuitive and highly personalised surgical platforms that enable more precise, less invasive procedures. Greater precision also means more patients will be viable for complicated but life-altering surgery and those treated will benefit from safer, more localised treatments and a shorter recovery time in hospital.

The Research Fellow/Senior Research Fellow in Flexible Electronics and Wireless Sensing position is going to be part of the microelectronics platform in WEISS. The aim of the platform is to develop and harness (micro)electronics and packaging expertise for fruitful exploitation of sensors, robotic devices and minimally invasive imaging tools currently being developed at WEISS.
The post is initially funded until 1 May 2024 and will be subject to standard appraisal procedures.
The post holder should hold a PhD in electronics/electrical engineering, robotics or physics or a related field to enable experimental research in flexible electronics and wireless sensing and have interest and/or expertise in biomedical engineering and translation of technology from lab to clinic.
To be appointed at Grade 8, substantial experience in electronics for surgery or other interventional procedures as well as track record of excellent publications are essential.The candidate will also be assessed with the desirable experience and skills. If this is not the case, initial appointment will be at Grade 7 (salary £38,308 - £46,155 per annum).
