The Biomedical Acoustics and Image Guided Therapy Laboratory in the Depts. of Mechanical (ME) and Biomedical Engineering (BME) at Georgia Tech & Emory University seeks a highly motivated and skilled postdoctoral fellow to explore the ability of focused ultrasound to increase the immunogenicity of brain tumors.
The ideal candidate should possess a PhD in Biomedical Engineering or related field with demonstrated expertise and productivity in MR guided FUS, cancer research or immunomodulation. This could include training in MRI, real time image guidance, and/or proficiency in intravital microscopy, flow cytometry, and immunohistochemistry. All candidates should have experimental proficiency and quantitative skills in data acquisition and analysis (preferably with MATLAB). Excellent written and verbal communication and enthusiasm to work in a multi-disciplinary team are essential.
The position offers significant training opportunities in state of the art therapeutic ultrasound technology and bioanalytical methods, including image guided therapy, numerical modeling, and in vitro and in vivo experimentation and imaging. The PI will directly train the candidate, support research success, and provide active mentorship for career development. Candidates willing to apply for funding as part of their career development will be actively supported.
Applications should include a CV, a one-page statement of research goals, a cover letter with the expected date of availability, and names and contact information of three references. Please email these materials to the PI of the lab Dr. Costas Arvanitis at costas.arvanitis AT gatech.edu.
