Undergraduate Internship: Programming a Telepresence System
UNL is partnering with The Telemedicine & Advanced Technology Research Center (TATRC) to develop a new surgical robot. We are looking for a CSE student (Junior or Senior preferably) to help design the telepresence system for the robot. The system will enable:
In vivo telepresence, which includes collaboration regarding control of the surgical robot to perform various surgical tasks, such as identification and manipulation of tissues and organs, surgical procedures, etc.
Ex vivo telepresence, which includes collaboration regarding the establishment of the location and orientation of the surgical ports, setup of the surgical robot, and other ex vivo (bedside) interactions between the surgeon, the OR staff, and the patient that occur during the surgery.
1) Taken (or currently enrolled in) CSCE 310
2) GPA of 3.4 or higher
4) Interest in learning how to program network protocols
3) No medical knowledge is necessary
Pay is $12/hour. The start date is flexible: you may start work part time this (Spring) semester and/or start full time by May 16th. Please send resume to email@example.com.
Other Positions in the TRL:
At the present time, the IBL has no open Research Assistantship (RA) opportunities; however, if you are self-funded (through an employer, fellowship, etc.), have an undergraduate GPA of 3.5 or higher, and are interested in conducting research in the IBL, please send a resume to Professor Terry.
Contact Professor Terry regarding undergraduate research opportunities in the IBL. Funding for undergradate research in the TRL typically comes through the UCARE program, although other opportunities may be available.
