Postgrad newsletter

Our postgraduate coordinater, Tanya Ficker, put together a bumper edition of the Faculty of Engineering’s regular newsletter — you can read it here. This is a great overview of our faculty’s research activities, plus some excellent articles on what some of our alumni are up to.

PhD in Medical Visualisation

An alumnus of Stellenbosch University’s DSP laboratory, Dr Charl Botha, who is currently at TU Delft, has a PhD position in Medical Visualisation (Surgical Planning with Adaptive Instruments) under his supervision. The project summary states:

The goal of the research project is to develop a pre-operative planning system for shoulder replacement that is tightly coupled with adaptive, patient-specific instruments for intra-operative guidance. This accurate and easy-to-use system will improve the outcome of total shoulder replacement, thereby improving the quality of life of patients as well as reducing costs by decreasing the number of revision operations.

The work will be done in collaboration with the hospital in Leiden. If you’re interested in applying, visit the vacancy posting, or mail Dr Botha for more information. Of course, you need an MSc in an appropriate discipline to be considered.
