博士后 - 生命与健康科学学院黎永富项目 (Ref.PR2021/061/01)
The laboratory primarily uses both chemistry and engineering techniques to develop different sorts of materials systems for drug delivery and sustained drug release. Meanwhile, it applies a multidisciplinary approach combining genetics, cell biology, and molecular biology to understand the biology of ageing and age-related disease and to identify targets for anti-aging medicine. The overarching goal is to apply our developed systems to intervene in the identified targets for retardation of aging, tissue regeneration, and life span extension.
The laboratory has a postdoctoral position available to identify targets for aging retardation and life span extension, and to develop interventions to combat aging and age-associated diseases. It seeks a highly motivated, ambitious, and talented scientist to join our enthusiastic and collaborative team in an outstanding scientific environment. Both basic research and translational studies are envisioned under this post-doctoral appointment. The ideal candidate would have a Ph.D. in a relevant research area such as molecular biology, biomedical engineering, genetics, and biochemistry, preferably in the context of aging research. Technical skills in cell micro-manipulation are preferred, and prior experience with model organisms (yeast, worm, fly, mouse) would be an asset. The candidate should be highly proficient in both English and Mandarin Chinese. Preference will also be given to those who have working language in Cantonese.
Key Duties and Responsibilities
1. Perform research and collect data for publication;
2. Help supervise junior research assistants and students in the laboratory;
3. Handle other tasks as assigned by the supervisor.
Qualifications and Requirements
1. A Ph.D. in a relevant research area;
2. Prior experience with model organisms (yeast, worm, fly, mouse);
3. Proficiency in both English and Mandarin Chinese.
Salary and Benefits
Salary will be comparable to international standards, commensurate with experience and accomplishments. Appointments will be made under the establishment of CUHK-Shenzhen, and employee benefits will be provided according to the relevant labor laws of Mainland China as well as CUHK-Shenzhen regulations.
