Postdoctoral Fellow Positions at Institut Pasteur of Shanghai, Chinese Academy of Sciences

Institut Pasteur of Shanghai, Chinese Academy of Sciences

Shanghai, China

ABOUT THE INSTITUTE AND THE CENTER
Institut Pasteur of Shanghai (IPS) is an independent research institution jointly established by Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), Institut Pasteur and Shanghai Municipal Government. IPS is dedicated to enhancing preparedness and responsiveness to infectious diseases through conducting cutting-edge research and sustained translation of solutions.

IPS has evolved three interdisciplinary research fields that cover pathogen biology, infection and immunity, vaccinology and immune therapy. IPS performs fundamental research on infectious diseases with unmet medical needs, emerging/reemerging viral, bacterial, fungal and parasite infections, immune regulation in metabolic disorders, tumorigenesis and degenerative diseases.

“The Center for Microbes, Development and Health” headed by Professor Philippe Sansonetti addresses the “post-modern, non-communicable epidemics” emerging in high-income regions, including high susceptibility of newborns to infections, and the developmental defects affecting populations in low-to-middle income regions, the focus being on the etiological role played by the ongoing global degradation of the human-microbial interface.

THE VACANCY
The institute is now seeking outstanding postdoctoral fellows and technicians.

Position3: Postdoctoral fellow
Laboratory of Statistical Genomics of Bacterial Pathogens (PI: Daniel Falush)
Research field: Bioinformatics/evolutionary biology

Job Description:
We are looking for postdoctoral researcher to spearhead studies of genetic variation within Helicobacter pylori based on thousands of genomes from China and around the world, seeking to understand the genetic basis of pathogenicity and antibiotic resistance based on newly sequenced isolates.

We are developing statistical genetic methods for characterizing fitness interactions within natural bacterial populations. The researcher will develop algorithms and apply them to data from various bacterial species as well as simulated data.

Qualifications:
-Highly motivated and talented applicant with Ph.D. (depending on the position) in population genetics, evolutionary biology, or statistical or other quantitative disciplines.
-Computational and data mining skills

Research field: High throughput sequencing applied to bacterial and viral genomics

Qualifications:
-Ph.D. degree in molecular biology and a good knowledge of high throughput sequencing techniques
-Knowledge of bacterial and/or viral genomics
-Be motivated and able to work in a team

Position 5: Programmer
Laboratory of Statistical Genomics of Bacterial Pathogens (PI: Daniel Falush)

Job Description:
We are seeking a programmer to support development of the bacterial database.

Qualifications:
-A bachelor degree in computer science or any quantitative discipline and 4 years relevant work experience or masters degree and two years relevant work experience.
-Knowledge of SQL, python. Experience with C++ and R advantageous.
-Programming in scientific environment an advantage
-Excellent English communication skills

Position 6: Postdoctoral fellow
Laboratory of Immunopathogenesis (Adjunct PI with permanent position in the Institute: Hong Tang)

Research fields: T cell biology
With research focus on understanding of how T cells regulate and/or are regulated by innate or antigen presenting cells, including macrophages, NK/ILCs, B cells, in various inflammatory disease setting, including but not limited to hepatitis, colitis, pneumonia, and autoimmune diseases.

Qualifications:
-Have a Ph.D. degree, preferably in the field of cell biology and immunology,
-Motivated applicant should have a broad technical expertise in immunobiology / molecular cell biology / CRISPR-Cas / animal modeling of diseases
-Talented applicant shall have a good track record of high quality papers
-Be proficient in English communication skills and willing to work as a team
