Interested in joining the lab?
We are a technology development lab; our primary focus is developing systems for image acquisition and formation. We are particularly interested in developing imaging technologies and techniques for image guidance. If you like working with signals, writing code, building and testing devices, or working at the interface between hardware and software, this lab could be a fit for you.
Prospective graduate students
Lab members will receive mentoring in experimental design, documentation, analysis, scientific communication (written and oral), and fundamentals of acoustics, ultrasound systems, transducers, and contrast agents. There is a strong emphasis on developing technologies that solve clinical challenges, although we do engineering research, not clinical research. Research is a collaboration—we must understand the problems we are trying to solve first and must apply sound engineering techniques, but each individual’s unique ideas, experiences, interests, and strengths will contribute to the research solutions that are ultimately developed in response to the problems. We want you to work on things that you find engaging, and we want to help you reach your personal and professional goals!
Post-Doctoral Researcher in Ultrasound Imaging and Signal Processing
A position for a postdoctoral researcher is available in the Ultrasonic Imaging and Instrumentation Laboratory in the Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology and Emory University in Atlanta. Ideal candidates will have experience in ultrasound imaging in general and expertise in one or more specific areas such as beamforming/signal processing, velocity estimation, motion tracking, or transducers. We seek a creative, enthusiastic researcher to join our team to contribute to transcranial ultrasound imaging and novel ultrasound systems. This researcher will work collaboratively with colleagues in microsystems engineering and neurosurgery.
Background and expertise
- Education: Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, or related field.
- Collaborative attitude and desire to work in an interdisciplinary environment
- Outstanding background in acoustics, signal processing, and ultrasound systems
- Willingness to learn new areas and technologies
- Strong record of publications in leading international journals
- Communicate and work independently and effectively with collaborators across Georgia Institute of Technology and Emory University School of Medicine.
- Conduct original research in the areas described above and work independently on one’s own ideas.
- Work collaboratively with and mentor undergraduate and graduate students in research projects involving ultrasound systems/signal processing, experimental design, data analysis, and transducers.
- Publish peer-reviewed manuscripts and present at international conferences
What we offer:
- Work in an exciting multidisciplinary environment at Georgia Tech and Emory, consistently ranked as one the top biomedical engineering departments in the U.S. and globally. (Currently #2 in U.S. according to U.S. News)
- This position will be funded to work on a single project (described above), but there will be opportunities to be involved in other projects depending on interests.
- Learn new technical areas in our lab and by working with our collaborators in areas including robotics, fluid dynamics, microsystems engineering, radiology, cardiology, and neurosurgery.
- Develop scientific and professional skills and receive mentoring for a career in industry or academia.
How to Apply:
- If you meet these requirements and are interested in this position, please submit a one page cover letter, CV including date of graduation, and contact information for three references as a single PDF to Brooks Lindsey (firstname.lastname@example.org) with subject: “Application for Postdoc Researcher position”. Applications will be considered immediately and on a rolling basis.
