Post-doctoral Fellow, Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering
The University of Hong Kong 's highest priorities are to create opportunities for the very best academic talents to excel and to advance human knowledge to the benefit of society. We serve the needs of Hong Kong, the wider region and the rest of the world.
Work type: Full-time
Department: Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering (14300)
Categories: Academic-related Staff
Applications are invited for appointment as Post-doctoral Fellow in the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering (Ref.: 502241), to commence as soon as possible for one year, with the possibility of renewal subject to satisfactory performance. AlphaHKU at the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering is a multidisciplinary research group with the major focus on developing new photonic tools which help solve a myriad of critical problems in biomedicine, life science and basic physics. One key vision is to exploit new-generation tools for image-based cell/tissue characterization and bioinformatic strategies applied in basic science and biomedicine for high-throughput and high-content single-cell or multi-omics analysis, with close collaboration with biomedical researchers as well as medical practitioners in hospitals. More information about the group can be found on the group’s Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/alphahku.lab/) and website (http://www.eee.hku.hk/~alphahku/).
The appointee will participate in research projects related to any one of the following areas:
- Ultrahigh-throughput optical bioimaging instrumentation (e.g. quantitative phase imaging, 3D fluorescence microscopy) from single-cell to tissue level;
- Development of new ultra-large-scale microfluidic cell-based bioassays; and
- High-speed microfluidic cell-sorter for single-cell analysis.
In particular, the projects focus on new strategies for next generation of single-cell analysis applied in life-science research as well as clinical diagnosis (e.g. cancer screening).
Enquiries about the duties of the post should be sent to Professor Kevin Tsia at email@example.com.
A highly competitive salary commensurate with qualifications and experience will be offered, in addition to annual leave and medical benefits. At current rates, salaries tax does not exceed 15% of gross income.
