Postdoctoral Positions at Center for Life Sciences

As an integral part of the Chinese efforts to build first-rate universities, the Center for Life Sciences (CLS) was established in 2011 at Tsinghua and Peking Universities. It is supported by the central government through the Ministry of Education (MOE), the Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST) and the Ministry of Finance (MOF). The mission of the center is to reform education and research, to attract excellent scientists interested in education, to conduct cutting edge research, and to nurture future generations of innovative scientists and educators.

Collaboration in research will be highly encouraged among scientists from the two universities. At each university, the center will anchor faculty members distributed in multiple schools and departments, ranging from biology, chemistry, physics, engineering, to psychology and medicine, nurturing interdisciplinary interactions. The center expects its independent laboratories led by principal investigators to pursue important scientific questions.

Applications are invited for Fellow and Postdoctoral positions at Center for Life Sciences (http://www.cls.edu.cn/english/). 

Purpose: Aiming to attract bright scientists and provide a highly interdisciplinary and supportive environment that allows them to conduct the cutting-edge research. Fellow and Postdoctoral appointments are designed for two to five years with excellent stipend and other support.

Eligibility Requirements: Candidates with PhD in life sciences or related fields (such as chemistry, physics, mathematics, computer science and engineering), regardless of previous specific areas of research are welcome to apply. The center encourages researches in life sciences and the related interdisciplinary areas. These include but not limited to: bioinformatics, biochemistry, biophysics, bioengineering, physical biology, cancer biology, epigenetics, cell biology, chemical biology, computational biology, medicinal chemistry, microbiology  and  virology, human genetics, genetics, genomics, mathematical biology, molecular medicine, molecular neuroscience and cognitive neuroscience, modern imaging, physiology, plant biology, synthetic biology, synthetic chemistry and systems biology. Exceptionally strong candidates are encouraged to apply for the Fellow position, which has considerable freedom of independence with a sizable research budget.
