2009 Summer Research Intern - Computer Vision/Image Processing 
Intuitive Surgical's Applied Research group is offering internships in
the area of computer vision and image processing. 
We are seeking talented individuals to participate in exciting
cross-disciplinary projects in tele-robotic surgery. Project 
areas include:
- Development of non-rigid image registration methods.  
- Development of methods for improving image quality in terms of
resolution, contrast and noise.
- Development of methodologies for evaluating image quality.
- Work with high-speed cameras to develop novel imaging applications. 
- The study of endoscopic imaging systems, including optical components,
illumination and sensors.
Expected contributions may range from evaluating existing
implementations, integrating systems, improving existing algorithms, 
to inventing new methods. PhD candidates and advanced MS students are
preferred. Other exceptional candidates will also be 
 - A passion for working with a high energy team to develop novel
   aimed at improving the lives of hundreds of thousands of patients.
 - Knowledge in computer vision, image processing, medical imaging.
   experience in one of the areas listed above is strongly preferred. 
 - Strong programming skill in C/C++, Matlab and fast prototyping. 
 - Familiarity with image/video acquisition.
Start time:      May/June 2009 (flexible) 
Period:           typically 3 months; extended internships may also be
