Accepting applications for Research Assistant Professor and Postdoc positions in Prof. James E. Rothman lab

We are recruiting a Research Assistant Professor and two postdocs to work in Nobel Laureate Dr. James Rothmans lab at ShanghaiTech University.

Position description:
We are interested in studying fundamental principles and machineries of membrane trafficking in mammalian cells. In particular, the candidates will be participating in a multi-institutional project between Yale University and ShanghaiTech that aims to study how membrane trafficking is spatiotemporally regulated and to understand the dysfunction of vesicle trafficking in human diseases. The candidate should have advanced knowledge in cell biology, signaling transduction and microscopy. Applicants have experience in CRISPR/Cas9 based gene KO/KI, and advanced live cell imaging techniques are preferable to apply.
Candidates with a strong background in biochemistry, cell biology and optical imaging, especially those with experience in processing imaging data or protein biochemistry are encouraged to apply. Candidates should be enthusiastic about learning new techniques, working in a team environment, and collaborating within and outside the lab. The applicants must have first-author papers in peer-reviewed journals and must be highly motivated with the drive to succeed. The applicants should be proficient in English communications. Successful candidates should have a Ph.D. in a relevant field (cell biology, biophysics, biochemistry, etc.). To apply for Research Assistant Professor position, one needs at least 2 years of postdoc experience.
Please provide a letter describing your long-term goals and interests, CV and three letters of reference in English, directly sent to (cc: and
