Xiaoyu Shi’s lab at the University of California, Irvine, is looking for highly motivated, and talented postdoctoral fellows to fill two postdoc positions (https://devcell.bio.uci.edu/faculty/xiaoyu-shi/, https://xyushi.wixsite.com/xshi). Competitive candidates should be interested in any of the following areas: super-resolution microscopy, structural biology, cell signaling, live-cell imaging, single-particle tracking, microfluidics, single-cell sequencing, proteomics, computational imaging, biochemistry, biophysics, and protein engineering. Postdoctoral candidates should have experience and publication track record in relevant fields.
- The primary job function for the postdoc position in super-resolution microscopy is to conduct research in the area of super-resolution microscopy in the lab. This includes (a) taking a primary role in ongoing super-resolution microscopy development projects; (b) leading or participating in projects on imaging-based single-cell multiomics.
- The primary job function for the postdoc position in cell biology is to conduct research in structural biology and cell signaling in the lab. This includes a) leading projects on structural study of nuclear periphery, chromatin organization, and other cellular organelles using super-resolution microscopy; b) leading or participating in projects on Hedgehog signaling pathway; c) generating stable cell lines for his/her projects.
Upon arrival, the postdocs will be further trained on super-resolution microscopy and expansion microscopy (if needed). The postdoc will also have freedom to develop new projects and new collaborations according to their research interests.
Candidates can apply here.
