Georgia Tech and Emory Faculty Positions - all ranks

The Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering, a joint department between Georgia Tech’s College of Engineering and Emory University’s School of Medicine (Atlanta, GA), is ranked #1 by US News and World Report. We benefit from a vibrant community of scientists, engineers and clinicians and are strongly supported by both institutions for continued growth.

For 2017-2018, we invite applications for multiple tenure-track faculty positions in the following areas:

  • Stem Cell Biology, Engineering, and Manufacturing. We seek candidates who can seamlessly interface between these areas to carry out translation of cell therapies or bring novel approaches to stem cell engineering and manufacturing, such as big data analytics/modeling/informatics, bioMEMs, biosensors, non-destructive and rapid cellular analyses, organoid-based disease models, integrated bioreactors, etc. In addition to stem cells, candidates working on immune cell manufacturing and engineering and focusing on the above-mentioned areas are also welcomed.
  • Imaging Science and Technology, which includes but is not limited to: Image guided therapy and interventions, Neuroimaging, Multi-scale imaging, Point of care imaging and instrumentation, Biomedical image processing and analytics, Optical imaging and super-resolution, and Functional/molecular imaging and probes.

There is the possibility of more than one hire in each of the above areas.

In addition to the above focus areas, truly exceptional candidates (“best athletes”) in other areas of research will also be considered. Such areas could include topics in immunoengineering, synthetic biology, neuroengineering, or protein engineering, but are not limited to those listed here.

Research activities of applicants should be broadly synergistic with the existing strengths in the department, described under Research on our website, Indeed, candidates must describe in their cover letter how their research would synergize with other activities within the Department and could be applied to address important clinical needs. Candidates must hold a doctoral degree (PhD, MD, or equivalent) in engineering, medicine, applied mathematics, computer science, or the natural sciences. Successful candidates will be expected to develop a vibrant externally-funded research program and to participate in teaching and advising undergraduate and graduate students.

Applications should be submitted to the Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering’s employment website (see below). Please include: (1) a cover letter; (2) a statement of research interests, not to exceed 4 pages and focusing on the impact of the candidate’s proposed research, the underlying questions, and the approach(es) to be taken; (3) a statement of teaching interests and philosophy, not to exceed 1 page; (4) a complete curriculum vitae; and (5) names and complete contact information of three professional references.
