Protein Expression, Purification and Identification Technician

Tsinghua University - Tsinghua University Advanced Innovation Center

Tsinghua University’s Advanced Innovation Center for Structural Biology was formally established in October 2015 with the support of Beijing Municipal Government. The Center aims to develop new methods and technologies related to structural biology, and with a world-class cryo-EM facility, it aspires to innovate and make Beijing the birthplace for several relevant key technologies. Furthermore, it aims to be an incubator for related technology enterprises.

Through several technological breakthroughs in recent years, cryo-EM has become one of the most popular technologies in structural biology. This technology’s development has enabled us to observe internal structure of living entities on a nanoscale and even atomic scale. It also provides important technical support in understanding basic principles of cell structure, relationship between health and disease, and drug research & development. Structural Biology technology (cryo-EM for example) combines features of several traditional disciplines such as computers, electronics, physics, mathematics, biology, and others, in order to meet research and development needs. We plan to hire a number of advanced research and technical personnel; especially outstanding scientists and engineers with rich and relevant work experience. We offer globally competitive salaries and endless opportunities for career development. We welcome senior technical applicants who are willing to be at the forefront of scientific research, to join us and step into the future.
