Postdoctoral Associate Position – The Institute of Zoology, Chinese Academy of Sciences
[ Update Time: 2015-01-21 ]

The laboratory directed by Dr. Haoyi Wang at The Institute of Zoology, Chinese Academy of Sciences, is recruiting applicants for a postdoctoral research position. The Wang Lab focuses on the development of novel technologies for genome and epigenome engineering, and their application on generation of disease models using mice and human stem cells as well as establishment of therapeutic methods for genetic disorders. For more details, see the representative publications listed below. 

The Institute of Zoology in Beijing, China, offers a unique research and training environment characterized by scientific collaboration and outstanding animal research resources. The position is in a collaborative, interdisciplinary, and highly translational environment. The successful candidate should hold a recent Ph.D. in biological sciences with a research background in molecular biology, computational biology, genetics or biochemistry. Highly-motivated candidates with research experience in nucleic acid biochemistry, genome engineering, epigenetics study, RNA research and gene therapy will be most competitive for this position. 

Please send a complete CV, brief summary of research experience/interests, and names and contact information of three references to .
