The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK), an internationally ranked top-tier university in Asia, has recently established a Centre for Cardiovascular Genomics and Medicine (CCGM) with research emphases in the following programmatic areas:
- Genetics and genomics of pediatric and adult cardiovascular diseases
- Stem cells in cardiac development, regeneration, and repair
- Metabolomics in heart failure and cardiovascular development and disease
- Translational medicine and therapeutics
Hong Kong is a cosmopolitan city rich in culture, has long played a leading role in international commerce, finance and education, and is now fast becoming a hub of high tech innovation in the Greater Bay Initiative. In this regard, CUHK is strategically situated adjacent to the Hong Kong Science Park, which houses biotech start-ups and major scientific industries, with strong history of academic-industry collaborations.
CCGM is jointly sponsored by the Department of Medicine and Therapeutics and the Department of Paediatrics in the CUHK Faculty of Medicine. Applicants seeking positions at the Associate or Assistant Professor level are welcome to apply. More senior appointment may be considered for exceptional candidates. Applicants should have (i) a PhD, MD, DVM or equivalent biomedical degree and (ii) a track record of research excellence with evidence of ability to lead a vigorous, independent research program and success in securing independent grant funding.
Appointments will initially be made on contract basis for 2-3 years commencing November 2018, which, subject to mutual agreement, may lead to longer-term appointment or substantiation later. Generous start-up package, competitive salary, housing allowance, and access to core facilities such as genomics and computational resource, imaging, and animal resources will be offered.
Applicants please complete online application form, upload the CV and contact information of three referees. Reference letters can also be sent to Professor Cecilia W. Lo by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
