The lab of Prof. Isaac Li is seeking a highly motivated postdoc to work in experimental biophysics in the Department of Chemistry at the University of British Columbia (UBC) Okanagan campus in Kelowna, Canada.
Our research is at the intersection of biophysics, chemical biology, and bioengineering. We are interested in understanding how molecular forces dictate biological functions and diseases. In particular, we develop DNA-based molecular tools for our investigations using a wide range of advanced techniques from single-molecule fluorescence, force spectroscopy to super-resolution microscopy. The candidate will be part of our highly interdisciplinary research team to develop the next-gen programmable molecular tools using a combination of the above tools. The design space to explore in this project is bound only by your creativity and curiosity.
The candidate should have a PhD in relevant disciplines (e.g. biophysics, physical chemistry, bioengineering) by the starting time of the position. We look for candidates with outstanding problem-solving skills, curiosity and a strong background in one or more of the following fields: single-molecule biophysics, mechanobiology, cell biology, bioengineering. Postdocs will have access to cutting-edge technologies and extremely active multidisciplinary collaborations with faculties in chemistry, biology, and bioengineering.
UBC’s new Okanagan campus is situated in the city of Kelowna at the heart of the Okanagan Valley – one of the most scenic regions in Canada. The city is on the Okanagan lake and surrounded by mountains where hiking, biking, rock climbing, skiing and watersports are easily within reach. The city is also famous for its wineries and short commute time, making it one of the cities with the highest quality of life.
