Two postdoctoral positions are currently available in the structural biology laboratory of Dr. Zhiyi Wei (http://bio.sustc.edu.cn/en/?p=189) at Department of Biology, Southern University of Science and Technology (SUSTech, Shenzhen, China). Our research interests is to uncover structural basis of large macromolecular assemblies in neuronal transmembrane signaling and cell-cell/matrix adhesion (Mol Cell, 2011; PNAS, 2013; eLife, 2014; PNAS, 2014; Nature, 2014; PNAS, 2017).
We offer an internationally competitive salary and benefits. Shenzhen government provides additional postdoctoral fellowship for Chinese nationals. The research work will be conducted at the Research Center for Life Science, which is equipped with state-of-the-art facilities for X-ray crystallography (Rigaku-007 plus Pilatus detector, crystallization robot), protein chemistry (BiaCore T200, PEAQ-ITC, MALS, etc.), and cell imaging. A cryoEM center is currently under construction, equipped with two Titan-Krios, one Talos and several 120kev EM machines, in the same building with our department. The position can apply research funds as PI for future career development.
Candidates should have received (or expect to receive) a Ph.D. in biochemistry or structural biology with a strong publication record. Candidates have experience with mammalian cell culture, cryoEM, or membrane proteins is a plus. Candidates should be highly motivated, have team-work spirit, and be able to work independently.
