Description of research group and project

The Zongli Zheng group has long interests in developing simple and advanced next-generation sequencing (NGS) technologies and associated data algorithms for precision medicine. Some of the technologies have been adopted globally in both research and clinical settings. We have also developed methods for characterising and improving CRISPR genome editing off-target, an important issue to address towards its clinical applications.

We are seeking a highly motivated individual to join our team to work on single-cell based genomics projects. We are interested in studying the relation between phenotypes and genotypes at both a global level and defined pathways, using novel NGS, CRISPR and informatics approaches on large scale single-cell studies. The position will be based in the inspiring environment in Hong Kong Science Park. Specific responsibility and requirement are:

  • Responsibility: To design single-cell NGS/CRISPR assays and carry out the experiments for studying phenotypes and genotypes relations.
  • Requirements: A PhD or equivalent degree in Molecular Biology, Biochemistry or relevant fields, with a proven record of publications.
  • Experiences in NGS, CRISPR and single-cell studies are preferred, but not required.
  • Excellent command of written and spoken English is required.
