Dr Andrea Curatolo
The International Centre for Translational Eye Research (ICTER) is a multi-investigator centre for eye research related to imaging and biochemical techniques to support advances in understanding the aetiology and treatment and human blinding diseases. Further information on the research priorities and current expertise of our Centre can be found at http://www.icter.pl.
Within ICTER, the IDoc Laboratory, led by Dr Curatolo, seeks to build an advanced imaging device for recording and processing Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) optoretinography signals for the retina of small living animals when exposed to a light stimulus. The system will be the first in the world to permit objective analysis of visual function, useful for discoveries in vision science and sight-restoring therapy effectiveness evaluation. On the other hand, The IDoc labs seeks to develop a novel platform for intraoperative ophthalmic OCT image guidance of robotic-aided treatments to fulfil unmet surgical needs in minimally invasive surgery on the eye (anterior and posterior pole). Novel IR shadowless optical sheathing for smart surgical instruments will be developed. For more information on the projects, please mail Dr Curatolo at firstname.lastname@example.org
The IDoc Laboratory seeks a Junior Software Specialist with knowledge of modern C++ and an understanding of Object-Oriented programming and architecture design patterns related to it, as well as proficiency at CMake, GTest and Git usage, among other skills.
The Junior Software Specialist will have a direct impact in helping with the software development for controlling a robotic arm in real-time in a multi-device I/O exchange software architecture. The Junior Software Specialist will report directly to the IDoc Software Engineer, Krzysztof Gromada, who is in charge of the software development for the project.
