The Physical Intelligence Department (https://pi.is.mpg.de/) at the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems (MPI-IS) in Stuttgart focuses on the design of minimally invasive robots for implementation within existing medical imaging modalities such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). We investigate robotic solutions to improve the gold standard for treating life-threatening diseases such as cancer, stroke, and Alzheimer’s.
In this research context, we are looking for a talented Masters student (m-f-div) in mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, robotics, or a related field for the duration of 6 months as a research student. The focus of the project will be centered around development of an MR-guided, steerable needle/catheter for cancer treatment.
The project will be carried out at the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems (MPI-IS) located in Stuttgart within the Physical Intelligence Department headed by Prof. Metin Sitti.
Master students holding a Bachelor’s degree will be paid €12,68 per hour. An initial contract will be offered for six months, with the possibility of further extension. Upon successful completion, the student will also have the option of joining an entrepreneurial team for technology commercialization.
The Max-Planck Society is committed to increasing the number of individuals with disabilities in its workforce and therefore encourages applications from such qualified individuals. Furthermore, the Max Planck Society seeks to increase the number of women in those areas where they are underrepresented and therefore explicitly encourages women to apply.
Applications should be uploaded in a single pdf and include a CV, a short motivation letter (why are you interested in this position/research?), current transcripts of BSc/MSc studies, and optionally other documentation helpful to evaluate your background.
The posting is open until filled or no longer needed.
Please upload your application to our application system (https://jobs.is.mpg.de/h9322).
