Our team is always searching for talented new scientists. We are committed to cultivating a diverse and inclusive lab environment where every team member is treated with kindness and respect.
Our Lab: In the Heart of Atlanta
The Abramson Lab is part of the School of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at The Georgia Institute of Technology. Located in the center of Atlanta, our lab will tap the engineering expertise of Georgia Tech and the medical expertise of the Emory School of Medicine to develop the next generation of ingestible, implantable and wearable medical devices. Georgia Tech is a Top 5 ranked program in BME, ChemE, MechE, and EE. Moreover, with an amazing nightlife, outdoor activity, and restaurant scene, as well as a moderate cost of living, learn more about why Atlanta is an amazing city to undergo your Graduate or Postdoctoral education.
Admitted students to Georgia Tech should directly email Dr. Abramson. Prospective students should apply directly through the Chemical Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, BioEngineering, or Robotics program websites. We welcome students from a range of multidisciplinary backgrounds, including Chemical Engineering and Biomedical Engineering, as well as students from other departments such as Mechanical Engineering and Electrical Engineering affiliated with the interdisciplinary bioengineering or robotics programs. Inquiries from already admitted students should be sent to (aabramson6 at gatech dot edu) and should include "Admitted PhD: Abramson Lab" in the subject line. If you are not yet admitted, please change "Admitted" to "Prospective". Note: It is not necessary to email Prof. Abramson before you are admitted to a Ph.D. Program to enable admission, because students are admitted as a cohort.
Prospective Fellows should email Dr. Abramson with a cover letter, CV, and a 5 slide presentation that summarizes their past research accomplishments. Please arrange for a letter of reference to be sent as well. Our lab will support scholars in their applications for NIH, NSF, and other prestigious fellowships. Currently, our lab has funded positions postdoctoral fellows. Inquiries should be sent to (aabramson6 at gatech dot edu) and should include "Prospective Postdoctoral Fellow: Abramson Lab" in the subject line.
Georgia Tech Undergraduates seeking a dynamic and supportive lab environment with a focus on translational medical research should fill out this brief survey and email Dr. Abramson with a statement of interest and a CV. We are always seeking motivated and curious students from any discipline. During longer tenures, students can expect to become co-authors and co-inventors on papers and patents. Students should send an email to (aabramson6 at gatech dot edu) with "Prospective Undergraduate: Abramson Lab" in the subject line.
Visiting Scholars and MDs
Prospective Visiting Scholars, such as self-funded Master's Students, Ph.D. students, and Medical Scientists, should email Dr. Abramson with a cover letter, CV, and a 1 slide presentation that summarizes their past research accomplishments. Please arrange for a letter of reference to be sent as well. Our lab will support scholars in their applications for funding and fellowships. Currently, our lab only has spots for self-funded visiting scholars. Inquiries should be sent to (aabramson6 at gatech dot edu) and include "Prospective Fellow: Abramson Lab" in the subject line.
Other Ways to Get Involved
If you are interested in our work and want to be involved in some way, the Abramson Lab regularly participates in outreach programs for the greater community. These include festival visits, talks, podcast interviews, lab tours, etc.
