Multiple Postdoctoral Fellowships available at the “Multiscale Research Institute for Complex Systems” at Fudan University


The Multiscale Research Institute for Complex Systems (MRICS) at Fudan University is located at the Zhangjiang Campus of Fudan University and is supported by the Shanghai High-peak Program. MRICS is strongly committed to the development of novel and effective multi-scale imaging technology that spans microscopic molecular structures all the way to macroscopic medical imaging, with the aim to provide unprecedented spatial and temporal insights into the structures and functions of living beings at all levels (molecules, cells, tissues, organs and even whole organisms). Our team includes Nobel laureate Professor Michael Levitt and international leading interdisciplinary experts.  

We are now open to recruit a number of postdoctoral fellows with trainings in various scientific fields. These include but are not limited to: 

Structural biology (X-ray crystallography and cryo-electron microscopy including single-particle and tomography); 

Biochemistry or protein chemistry (no structural biology background is required); 

Genetics, epigenetics or cell biology (experience in cell or tissue imaging is preferred); 

Computational biology (the development of large-scale molecular dynamics simulation algorithms, algorithmic development related to electron microscopy imaging techniques, and the application of artificial intelligence in biology. We particularly welcome applicants with Ph.D. degree in theoretical physics, computational physics or condensed matter physics); 

Development of experimental animal disease models (experience in experimental animal research is preferred).

Other criteria: 1) Recent Ph.D. graduates (within three years of graduation) from a well-known university or research institute anywhere in the world; 2) Fluent in English; 3) Published high-level research articles in the past three years.  

Compensation: 1) We offer internationally competitive annual salary, the level will be determined according to the applicant's experience and qualification; 2) We will assist in applying for low-rent housing in Shanghai and provide certain housing subsidies; 3) We have ample opportunities to collaborate with renown laboratories worldwide; 4) We provide support for applying for funding opportunities whenever applicable.  

For interested applicants, please submit postdoctoral application packages including resumes, concise research interest statements, representative publications, phone numbers and email addresses of three academic referees to:  Miss Lingyue Guo (Phone: 13916436393, Email:   

We look forward to your joining of our first-class team!
