PhD Student Opening in Sarkar Group

PhD Student Opening in the Department of Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering at The George Washington University, Washington, DC


Join the Sarkar Group in performing fundamental biomedical acoustics research in the heart of DC! As a PhD student in the lab, you would develop and implement novel experiments involving bubbles, droplets, and liposomes for ultrasound diagnostic and therapeutic applications. Additional research methods include theory, modeling, and computation. The course of study will be personalized to the student’s interests, and the student will receive financial support (current funding includes two NIH grants and one NSF grant). The ideal student is highly motivated and eager to learn.



  • Undergraduate degree in mechanical engineering or related field (acoustics, physics, biomedical engineering, other engineering field, etc.)
