PhD and postdoctoral positions at LTSI INSERM Université de Rennes 1 in Virtual Reality, Surgical Training and Machine learning

Apply to a research project on “New digital forms for medical and surgical teaching” –

The AIR project from the University of Rennes 1, in collaboration with University of Rennes 2, Inria, INSA and industrial IT companies, is one of the few national funded research projects to study new digital forms for teaching. Specifically, the AIR project aims to develop innovative operational solutions to increase and enrich pedagogical interactions through digital means. Within this project, the MediCIS/LTSI team aims 1) to develop innovative virtual reality based simulators to help learning non-technical medical and surgical skills, 2) to study data driven approaches for quantitative and objective assessment of skills based on machine learning and multimodal sensors, and 3) to promote the usage of and evaluate the developed systems and tools in medical contexts within the simulation center of the university and the collaborating medical simulation and training centers.

For this project, we are looking for one postdoc or research engineer and one PhD student in the area of virtual reality and artificial intelligence in medical and surgical training. The project will last three years. The MediCIS/LTSI lab is located within the medical university and is composed of researchers both from engineering and medicine working together on societal high value projects, in a context of responsible research, aware of social, environmental and ethical impacts.
