In line with the Department of Electronic Engineering’s long-term plans for expansion, we are seeking to appoint an outstanding academic with research interests in the area of Medical Robotics, Mechatronics & Imaging


Supported by the Royal Society funding, we are seeking to appoint an outstanding postdoc to develop an integrated robotic system for improved prostate cancer treatment under Magnetic Resonance Imaging-guided focal laser ablation.

Applications are invited for PhD students to develop a highly integrated robotic system to enable minimally invasive procedures in the spine. Applications include treating degenerative disc disease, lower back pain, lower extremity pain, neuropathic pain and cord injuries, etc.

Applications are invited for PhD students to develop and validate a cost-effective, easy-to-use and fully integrated navigation system for smart catheter procedures during image-guided cancer diagnosis and treatment. Image-guided catherisation has large clinical impact in modern interventional radiology and oncology.

Applications are invited for PhD students to develop an integrated robotic system for improved prostate cancer treatment under image-guided treatment. Prostate cancer accounts for 26% of all new cancer cases in males in the country, which is the second leading cause of death from cancer in men.  


Our lab supports experiential learning opportunities for outstanding undergraduate students across campus to actively participate in faculty-mentored research. Prospective students must email his/her CVs and relevant documents to Prof. Tse.


We are seeking to engage medical students to join our lab under the HYMS Student Research Project Programme (INSPIRE).  Projects can be over summer/throughout the academic year. Students are encouraged to contact Prof. Tse before applying.
