Applications are invited for appointment as Post-doctoral Fellow in the School of Biomedical Sciences (Ref.: 522934), to commence as soon as possible for two years, with the possibility of renewal subject to satisfactory performance and funding availability.
Applicants should have a Ph.D. degree, preferably in molecular biology, protein purification, stem cell biology, genome engineering, neuroscience, structural biology, or fluorescence microscopy, with excellent experimentation and communication skills. Experience in cell imaging or single-molecule fluorescence microscopy will be a plus.
The appointee will work jointly with Dr. Jeff Ti and Dr. Ralf Jauch on a collaborative research project to investigate how human tubulin isotypes regulate neuronal morphology and functions in health and disease. Dr. Ti’s Lab will employ single-molecule fluorescence and electron microscopy to dissect the molecular basis that confers diverse human tubulin isotypes' unique and essential functions. Dr. Jauch’s lab will differentiate human stem cells into motor neurons to study how tubulin isotypes and mutations that cause neurodegeneration affect neuronal morphology and function. For further information, please contact Dr. Ti at email@example.com and Dr. Jauch at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit the pages of Dr. Ti and Dr. Jauch at https://www.tilab.org and https://www.sbms.hku.hk/staff/ralf-jauch.
A highly competitive salary commensurate with qualifications and experience will be offered, in addition to annual leave and medical benefits.
The University only accepts online application for the above post. Applicants should apply online and upload an up-to-date C.V. Review of applications will start on September 21, 2023 and continue until December 6, 2023, or until the post is filled, whichever is earlier.
