Georgia Institute of Technology
September 7, 2018
Full Time - Experienced
The Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering of the Georgia Tech College of Engineering and Emory University 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 rapid growth in faculty, research and educational programs. Building on outstanding hires over the past years (https://www.bme.gatech.edu/bme/faculty), we are currently expanding our faculty in multiple areas, including at the senior (endowed chair) level.
For 2018-2019, we invite applications for multiple tenure-track faculty positions at all ranks in the following areas:
•Engineering, Biology, and Manufacturing of Therapeutic Cells. We seek candidates who can seamlessly interface between these areas to carry out translation of cell-based therapies or bring novel approaches to stem cell, immune cell, or other therapeutic cell engineering and manufacturing. Areas of interest include but are not limited to big data analytics, modeling, and informatics including deep learning approaches to understand cell behavior and cell quality; sensors for cell and cell culture analytics; non-destructive, rapid and image analytics assisted cellular analyses; genomics and epigenomic tools for understanding and controlling cell properties; organoid-based disease models and microphysiological systems; integrated bioreactors and bioprocessing, and new methods for scalable cell production.
•Cardiovascular Biomechanics and Bioengineering. We seek candidates with an interest in developing methods to diagnose and treat cardiovascular diseases of the heart, heart valves, vasculature, and lymphatics using novel approaches such as advanced experimental techniques, patient-specific computational modeling, imaging informatics, interventional medical devices, biomaterials, medical robotics, and regenerative medicine. Specific areas of interest include, but are not limited to, structural heart disease, pediatric cardiovascular diseases, heart failure, and integrative multi-scale modelling approaches.
•In addition to the above focus areas, truly exceptional candidates in exciting, leading edge areas of research are encouraged to apply. Areas could include injury biomechanics, orthopedics, rehabilitation, medical robotics, bacterial engineering, immunoengineering, cancer technologies, and neuroengineering, but are not limited to those listed here.
Additionally, we invite senior applicants for the Wallace H. Coulter Distinguished Faculty Chair in Biomedical Engineering at Georgia Tech. Successful candidates will be senior faculty with a demonstrated capability to: (i) lead a highly impactful and translational research program, (ii) provide outstanding mentorship to trainees and junior faculty, and (iii) enrich and engage in a collegial Departmental environment. Candidates must have an internationally recognized track record of discovery and research development, and be eligible for appointment as a full professor with tenure to continue their leadership in contemporary engineering and innovation.
Located in Atlanta, The Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering at Georgia Tech and Emory University has a student body of 1,200 undergraduates, 260 graduate students, and more than 60 primary and 50 program faculty. Since the Department’s founding, the unique partnership between one of the nation's leading public and private entities has been an innovation engine of research and education. Together, we are focused on solving some of the toughest problems facing our state, the nation, and the world.

We strive to create and maintain an environment that values and respects our individual and communal differences, and support a healthy work-life balance.
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 via AcademicJobsOnline (see below). Please include: (1) a cover letter describing how your research could be applied to address important clinical needs and synergize with other research activities within the Department (https://www.bme.gatech.edu/bme/research); (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 at least three professional references. For inquiries, please contact the BME Search Committee (GT-Emory-Recruiting@bme.gatech.edu)
Applications will be considered starting immediately on a rolling basis. To ensure full consideration, all application materials must be received on or before November 1, 2018.
