The laboratory of Dr. Ting Gang Chew (http://zje.intl.zju.edu.cn/en/our-team/faculty) is inviting international candidates to apply for a post-doctoral position to join our dynamic research group at the Zhejiang Edinburgh Institute (ZJE). Our institute is a collaborative research institute in biomedical sciences between Zhejiang University (Top 3 in China) and The University of Edinburgh (World’s top 20). The institute sits in the International Campus of Zhejiang University at Haining in China, which provides a supportive ecosystem for foreign academics to work in China.
Dr. Chew’s laboratory employs high-resolution live-cell microscopy techniques and modern molecular genetics tools to study the dynamics and mechanics of cell division/cytokinesis in eukaryotic systems such as human cells. A long-term goal of this laboratory is to have a tissue-level understanding of the cell division process, and the pathological consequences of cytokinesis failure in disease progression. To this end, the candidates will be developing various optical imaging-based tools to study the cell division problems in single-cells and tissues.
The candidates will have a relevant Ph.D in cell biology or molecular biology. Familiarity with basic cell culture, microscopy, molecular and biochemical experimental techniques are essential. Previous experience in live-cell imaging would be helpful, but is not essential. A demonstrable track record of productive experimental work is essential.
The ideal candidate will be appointed starting from a salary of about CNY200,000 to CNY300,000 per year depending on the candidate’s qualifications. The candidate will be able to stay within the beautiful and English-speaking campus.
Interested candidates can submit their resume and representative publications to firstname.lastname@example.org, and specify “Post-doctoral fellow application”. Please include contact information (emails and affiliations) of 3 referees in your application.
