Job Description

ZJU regenerative medicine group mainly focuses on the use of stem cells, biomaterials and tissue engineering in the field of musculoskeletal science to create novel therapeutic strategies for tissue regeneration. Detailed information can be found in http://term.zju.edu.cn/english/.
Prof. H-W. Ouyang invites applicants for multiple postdoctoral positions in the areas of:

- Tendon Diseases and Regeneration
- Osteoarthritis and Cartilage Regeneration
- Biomaterials and Scaffold Development
- Stem Cell Amplification Technology

Zhejiang University located in Hangzhou, one of the most beautiful cities in China, ranks as one of the top research institutions in China and demonstrates its academic excellence with rapidly rising presence in global university ranking. We provide a collaborative research environment and access state-of-the-art infrastructures and core facilities at Zhejiang School of Medicine. Currently, there are foreign faculty members and postdoctoral fellows conducting cutting-edge research in the School.

Candidates should have excellent academic qualifications, good writing and communication skills, teamworking spirit, strong responsibility and feel comfortable in interdisciplinary environment. Candidates with prior experience with stem cells and regenerative medicine (stem cell biology, tissue engineering, biomaterials, bioinformatics, genome editing using CRISPR Cas9 technology…) are particularly welcome.

Qualified applicants will be offered international competitive salary (35,000~50,000 USD dollars/year) by Li Dak Sum Postdoc Fellowships, start-up funding, and other benefits which are commensurate with qualifications and experience.
Applicants should submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, and the names of three references to:

Dr. Junfeng Ji’s research focuses on stem cell biology. It branches out into two directions: 1) pluripotency and somatic reprogramming; 2) stem cell aging. The laboratory is particularly interested in understanding the molecular signals including epigenetic modifiers, metabolites and signaling molecules that control stem cell fate decision. The laboratory has demonstrated track record in this exciting field by publications in high-rank journal such as Stem Cell Reports (Cover Story), Stem Cells and Journal of Cell Science etc.
The successful candidates must possess a PhD or MD/PhD. Molecular biology and epigenetic experience are preferred. Prior experience with stem cell and regenerative medicine is desirable but not essential. Applicants should submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, and the names of three references to:
