The Multiscale Research Institute for Complex Systems (MRICS) at Fudan University is located at the Zhangjiang Campus of Fudan University and is supported by the Shanghai High-level Talents Program.  MRICS is strongly committed to the development of novel and effective multi-scale imaging technology that spans microscopic molecular structures all the way to macroscopic medical imaging, with the aim to provide unprecedented spatial and temporal insights into the structures and functions of living beings at all levels (molecules, cells, tissues, organs and even whole organisms).  Specifically for structural biology, MRICS is equipped with a state-of-the-art cryo-EM facility that includes FEI Titan Krios with Volta phase plate, Glacios, Talos and Aquilos.  MRICS is also located next to Shanghai Synchrotron Radiation Facility for X-ray crystallography.

Our team includes Nobel laureate and international leading interdisciplinary experts.    

We have new openings for multiple postdoctoral fellows in structural biology who will mainly study important biological systems by means of cryo-electron microscopy including single-particle and tomography. 

Requirements: 

The applicants should have a recent Ph.D. degree (within two years of graduation) or will have a Ph.D. degree within the next six months in biology or chemistry-related fields, be devoted to excellence in scientific research, have strong sense of responsibility, and be highly motivated and hardworking.  For these positions, extensive experience in protein expression and purification is a must, while prior experience in X-ray crystallography or cryo-EM is a plus, but is not required.  

Compensation:

1)    We offer internationally competitive salary, fringe benefits and yearly bonus.  The level of salary will be determined according to the applicant’s experience and qualification; 

2)    Low-rent housing on campus is provided; 

3)    There are ample opportunities to collaborate with world-renown laboratories;

4)    We provide support for applying for funding opportunities whenever applicable.  

Shanghai is one of the most cosmopolitan cities in China with strong economy and vibrant scientific community. 

For interested applicants, please submit postdoctoral application packages (a combined pdf) including resumes, representative publications, phone numbers and email addresses of three academic referees to mrics_fd@fudan.edu.cn.

We look forward to your joining of our first-class team!
