Position description

Xiaoyu Shi’s lab at the University of California, Irvine, is looking for highly motivated, and talented postdoctoral fellows to fill two postdoc positions. Competitive candidates should be interested in any of the following areas: single-cell analysis, spatial omics, super-resolution microscopy, multi-photon microscopy, microfluidics, proteomics, molecular biology, biochemistry, genetics, cell biology, and neuroscience. Postdoctoral candidates should have experience and publication track record in relevant fields.

  1. The primary job function for the postdoc position in spatial multiomics is to (1) develop new methods of spatial multiomics including transcriptomics, epigenetics, and proteomics, and (2) apply the methods in Alzheimer’s disease and other diseases.

  2. The primary job function for the postdoc position in super-resolution microscopy is to study organelle-organelle interactions using super-resolution microscopy or develop new super-resolution microscopy methods in the lab.
    Please find more information about Shi Lab at Postdocs in the Shi Lab are financially supported for one national or international meeting per year, and unlimited local meetings. The UCI campus offers numerous training programs and workshops for postdocs in leadership building, teaching skill enhancement, career development, and early career fellowship application.
