MIB is a young group that aims to interface engineering and biology. We offer a wide spectrum of training opportunities in the following areas: Microfabrication, Fluorescence Spectroscopy, Disease Diagnosis and DNA Nanotechnology. To learn the group culture further and how to survive in the group, please refer to the MIB Survival Guide.

Postdoc or RA

A postdoctoral position (or excellent research assistant with a master degree) is available. We are looking for candidates with strong background in designing microfluidics for biological applications. The project is focused on developing new strategies to isolate subcellular organelles from clinical samples. The candidate will be supported as the Shun Hing Fellow by the Shun Hing Institute of Advanced Engineering in the Chinese University of Hong Kong. The first contract is 12 months (with possibilities of extension). The position is expected to start as early as July 1, 2018.

To apply for this position, please send the CV and a list of references to the PI, Prof. Megan Yi-Ping Ho at ypho@cuhk.edu.hk.
