Prof. MA Luyan’s group at State Key Laboratory of Microbial Resources in Institute of Microbiology, Chinese Academy of Sciences (IMCAS) is mainly interested in the molecular mechanisms for biofilm formation and persistence. The extracellular polymeric substances (EPS) function as a matrix holding microbial cells in a biofilm and provide protection for the matrix enmeshed microorganisms, which play a critical role in biofilm formation and persistence. Their current research is mainly focused on the EPS matrix.
Position available: One assistant professor
Responsibility: Perform research on biofilm formation
1) Ph.D in microbiology or molecular biology and published research papers in peer-reviewed journals;
2) Capable of conducting research independently;
3) Good writing and communication skills in both Chinese and English;
4) A team player.
