Postdoctoral Fellow (development of high-throughput single-cell imaging and its applications in cytometry and single-cell analysis)
The University of Hong Kong, Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering
AlphaHKU is a multidisciplinary research group with the major focus on developing new photonic tools which help solve a myriad of critical problems in biomedicine life science and basic physics. One key vision is to exploit a new generation of high-data-volume measurement and analytical strategies applied in basic science and biomedicine such as high-throughput and high-content single cell analysis, with close collaboration with biomedical researchers as well as medical practitioners in hospitals.
Our group is currently recruiting one postdoctoral fellow for the research projects related to the following areas:
Ultrahigh-throughput optical bioimaging instrumentation (e.g. quantitative phase imaging, 3D fluorescence microscopy) from single-cell to tissue level;
Development of new ultra-large-scale cell-based assay;
High-speed microfluidic cell-sorter for single-cell analysis.
In particular the projects focus on new strategies for next generation of single-cell analysis applied in life-science research as well as clinical diagnosis (e.g. cancer screening).
