Biodynamics Optical Imaging Center (BIOPIC) at Peking University of China is open for 2-3 tenure-track faculty positions focused on the application of bioimaging or sequencing technologies to life sciences.
All applicants must have a doctoral degree in life sciences, optics, bioinformatics or other related fields or equivalent, with evidence of rigorous training in bioimaging, high-throughput sequencing and genomics and an independent research program. Experience in teaching courses at the graduate level is desirable. Applicants must have a national/international reputation, an independently funded program of research and a proven track record of productivity. Applicants are expected to show leadership potentials in research, teaching and professional service.
BIOPIC is an interdisciplinary research center established by Peking University in 2010. The aim of the center is to develop and apply the most advanced bioimaging and sequencing techniques to address fundamental biological and compelling medical problems at the molecular and cellular levels. BIOPIC will focus on the following five areas of technical development:
(1) Single molecule observation and manipulation: from in vitro to in vivo
(2) High throughput sequencing
(3) Super-resolution cellular imaging
(4) Microfluidic control and analysis of single cells
(5) Label-free biomedical imaging
BIOPIC will take advantage of these latest technologies to conduct fundamental researches in biochemistry, biophysics, molecular biology and cell biology, with the hope to provide understanding of stem cells, cancers, infectious and metabolic diseases. BIOPIC wishes to make an impact on life sciences through international collaborations, by applying cutting edge technologies to biomedical research with a multidisciplinary approach.
The successful applicants will work closely with BIOPIC researchers and other PKU and Chinese top researchers and have prior access to state-of-art experimental equipments. BIOPIC is strongly supported by Peking University. The startup packages and personal benefits for individual investigators will be generous.
Peking University is located in the historic city of Beijing, one of the most dynamic and international municipalities in the world, which offers a diverse cultural and educational opportunities.
Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the positions are filled.
Interested applicants should send the following pakcage to hejiao#pku.edu.cn:
