Laboratory Technician& Administrative Assistant positions at Dr. Bueler‘s  lab

Job Description:

  1. Westudy the molecular and cellular mechanisms of Parkinson’s disease pathogenesis using genetically modified cells and knockout mice. We use a variety of molecular, cellular and biochemical techniques, including sub-cloning in E. coli, isolation of DNA and RNA, tissue culture, transient and stable transfection of mammalian cells, analysis of mRNA and protein expression in cells and tissues (e.g. RT-PCR, Western blot, immunoprecipitation, flow cytometry), production of recombinant AAV viral vectors for in vivo gene transfer, immunohistochemistry, histology and cell metabolic analyses.

  2. Technician is expected to carry out experiments exactly, effectively and with care, and maintain detailed and timely records of the work in a lab journal.

  3. Administrative duties include ordering of reagents, keeping up-to-date records of orders and lab spending, helping with completion and submission (forms) of research grants and university budgets, and handling of payments and reimbursements by university.

  4. Technician/Administrative Assistant will workunder the guidance and supervision of the principal investigator and/or other lab members.

 Application Requirements:

  1. Applicants should have aBatchelor or Master degree in biology or a closely related field and be interested to work in a dynamic research environment and group.

  2. The position requires reasonable oral and written English skills for communication with the professor and excellent Chinese to work with university personnel.

  3. The selected candidatewill be introduced to theadministrative aspects of the work by the current holder of the position and is expected to start work no later than June 1, 2015.

 To apply please send your CV in Englishwith publications (if applicable), list of previously mastered techniques/methods and other skills relevant to this position, and the names and contact details of at least two references with whom you worked to hbueler@hit.edu.cn.Furtherinformationon our research, group and publicationsis available at the following websites:http://life.hit.edu.cn/News/Show_e.asp?id=4408 and http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/?term=Bueler+H

 Scientist/postdoctoral positions in structural biology and infectious diseases

Several scientist/postdoctoral positions are available in prof. Zhiwei Huang’s laboratory at Harbin Institute of Technology. Our research interests focus on studying the mechanism of pathogen (such as HIV and Ebola virus)-host interactions, with particular interest in host innate immunity to viral infection. We use multi-disciplinary approaches including structural biology, biochemistry, virology, cell biology, and mouse genetics in our studies.

Highly motivated candidates with Ph.D. and background in macromolecular X-ray crystallography, Cryo-EM, HIV biology, virology, immunology, pathogenic microorganism or cell biology are encouraged to apply. We offer competitive salary and benefits, which will be commensurate with experiences.

Applications with a statement of interest, a full CV and three contacts for reference should be sent to prof. Zhiwei Huang at huangzhiwei2009@gmail.com


Master/PhD/Postdoc positions at Synthetic Biology Lab

Synthetic Biology is referred to as Life Engineering since it aims at modifying cells with the insertion of DNA circuits that carry out new, specific tasks. Possible applications are diagnostic, cure of disease, biofuel production, and environmental care. Research in Synthetic Biology is both theoretical and applied. Circuits are first designed on the computer. They are associated with mathematical models such that simulations can drive their wet-lab implementation. Therefore, students with different backgrounds (e.g. computer science, physics, and biology) can do research in Synthetic Biology. In my lab, on the computational side I want to develop a stand-alone piece of software for the design of eukaryotic circuits. A user will be able to retrieve components from a database, wire them together on a Graphic User Interface or via a grammar (i.e. by specifying a list of instructions), simulate, and optimize them. Particular attention will be placed on automatic design of bio-sensing devices.  These kinds of circuits will be, indeed, the main target of my wet-lab. Circuits will be assembled in yeast and will require a proper characterization of their components (promoters, mRNAs, and terminators). Yeast is the simplest eukaryotic organism and, therefore, a perfect candidate to develop models and build biosensors that might be used later into more complex hosts such as mammalian cells. Moreover, yeast is largely used in baking and brewing.Therefore, yeast cells carrying specific biosensors can be exploited to assess food quality directly.

Following these lines, I have projects both for computational and experimental Synthetic Biology.  Further information and a list of my publications is available at my English web page:http://slst.hit.edu.cn/research/labs/synthetic-biology
