Postdoctoral Fellow in Bio-Sensors – Georgia Tech & Emory
(Atlanta, GA, United States)

The Sensors for Living Systems Lab (SL2) led by Dr. David Myers is a fun-loving, hard-working group of engineers and biomedical researchers who work closely with clinical colleagues on significant and innovative technologies. We develop new ways to measure biological systems for basic biomedical and clinical research. In addition to providing exceptional benefits and competitive pay, our lab provides an intellectually stimulating environment that fosters personal growth.

We have an immediate need for an individual with a microsystems background and an interest in developing a novel pressure sensor to detect shunt failure in patients with hydrocephalus. Our innovative team includes neurosurgeons, experts in ultrasound, and biomedical engineers. In addition to gaining skills useful for a faculty career, this position could also transition into a startup opportunity. The ideal candidate will have a PhD in Engineering (ME, EE, BioE, BME, ChemE) and experience with microsystems design, packaging design, sensors design, and/or rapid prototyping (3d printing, laser cutting, etc.).

The Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering at Georgia Tech and Emory University has consistently been ranked as one of the best BioE/BME programs in the world, and is part of a vibrant biomedical community in Atlanta that includes the Emory School of Medicine, Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Winship Cancer Institute, Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta (CHOA), Institute for Electronics and Nanotechnology, Petit Institute for Bioengineering and Bioscience, and more. This rich scientific environment provides unique and unparalleled research training opportunities, including seminars given by leaders in science and engineering from throughout the U.S. and abroad, opportunities for collaborations, exposure to diverse research programs, and sophisticated core facilities.

How to apply: Applications should include a curriculum vitae, list of publications, short description of research interests as it relates to SL2, as well as names and contact information for three references. Please send the application to Dr. David Myers (
