Job Opportunities

Automation Scientist/Engineer for Life Sciences Research in iHuman institute, ShanghaiTech University

iHuman Institute is a new international effort established as a research institute located on the campus of ShanghaiTech University. The institute is a gateway to the world of Shanghai life science research. What makes iHuman Institute special is that it is focused exclusively on the basic and applied science of human cell signaling, integrating multiple tools for scientific discovery, and bringing together leading researchers throughout the world. Cell surface receptors and their related intracellular proteins are responsible for human cellular communications with each other and their environment, and are involved in a wide range of physiological activities. Such a central role in human biology makes cell signaling the target for intervention for tuning physiological responses and fighting numerous conditions and diseases. These proteins are central to understanding the evolution of mankind and human cognition at a molecular level.
The institute is focused on the study of human cell signaling using a combination of state of the art integrative structural biology, cell biology, chemistry, computational chemistry and biology, and the range of imaging technologies from molecule to man.  For more information visit

Academic Disciplines:
An exciting scientist or engineer position is available to develop intelligent software and hardware for an advanced state of the art molecular structure determination/protein crystallography beamline at the Shanghai Synchrotron Research Facility (SSRF) in collaboration with iHuman Institute at ShanghaiTech University and the Shanghai Synchrotron Radiation Facility. This position will include the development of data processing and analysis, beamline control, and data collection software as part of a multi-institutional team. The ability to understand the complex system of instrumentation and its scientific applications are critical.
