Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) project under the Department of Biomedical Engineering (DBE) has a vacant PhD position. The primary goal of this interdisciplinary project called Minimally Invasive Robot Assisted Computer-guided LaserosteotomE (MIRACLE) is to develop a minimally invasive robotic endoscope for cutting bone with laser light. Successful candidate will have significant contribution to the development of a disruptive technology in robotic surgery.

Project Description:

During the course of this project Ph.D candidate will be involved in developing an optical coherence tomography (OCT) system for smart medical laser. To build up this OCT system, investigations on how to characterize bone and tissue during laser cutting and monitor cutting depth in real time will be carried out.


  • Master’s degree in Biomedical Engineering/Electrical Engineering/Optical Engineering/ Physics or related fields.
  • Exceptional Master’s and Bachelor’s grades.
  • Skills to assemble optical, electrical and mechanical instruments.
  • Knowledge of programming languages (e.g. C++, MATLAB or Labview)
  • Know-how to build OCT system (e.g. Swept Source or Spectral Domain) is desirable.
  • Some experience in functional OCT (e.g. elastography OCT, Doppler OCT) will be added value.
  • Understanding in CUDA or GPU parallel computing is a plus.
  • English proficiency must be good.

Application Procedure:

  • Candidates shall submit their documents electronically as a single *pdf file by email with the subject «PhD Student Application: Optical Coherence Tomography».
  • The document should include: letter of motivation, CV with publication list and other academic information, grade transcripts, TOEFL and/or IETLS scores (if available) and three references with full address/phone number/email.

This project provides opportunity to work in a highly innovative project with up to 30 researchers. It will also provide enrollment in an established 3-4 years PhD program in Biomedical Engineering
