Career Opportunities

Postdoctoral positions are available. Please email your application to Xiaohui Qu at

We are an interdisciplinary lab working at the interface of biology, physics, and chemistry, with a focus on applying high-resolution single-molecule optical techniques to study the molecular mechanisms of gene expression control. Highly motivated candidates with backgrounds in biology (molecular biology, cell biology, biochemistry, biophysics, etc.) or physical sciences (physical chemistry, single-molecule biophysics, etc.) are encouraged to apply. Research experience in single-molecule biophysics is a plus, but not required. We provide all necessary training. Candidates with strong interests in expanding their skill sets to interdisciplinary studies will be highly preferred.

Application Requirements

All applications should include the following:

  1. Cover letter indicating current and future research interests and expected availability date

  2. CV

  3. Brief description of past research experience and accomplishments

  4. Contact information of at least three references
