PostDoc in the Li Group in University of British Columbia

The Laboratory of Dr. Hongbin Li at Department of Chemistry, University of British Columbia is seeking highly motivated postdoctoral fellows who wish to advance their research and career prospects. The Li group is using single molecule force spectroscopy techniques to understand the molecular design principles of elastomeric proteins involved in various mechano-biological processes, to rationally engineer novel protein building blocks with well-defined mechanical properties, and to engineer protein-based biomaterials with tailored mechanical properties for biomedical applications (for details please see

Two highly motivated and talented postdoctoral fellows are sought to join our ongoing research efforts in two areas: 1) single molecule force spectroscopy on proteins; 2) protein-based biomaterials. Successful candidates should have a Ph.D. in biophysics, biochemistry, chemistry, chemical/biological engineering or a closely related field obtained within the past five years. Although prior expertise with protein engineering, and/or single molecule studies is preferred, candidates with demonstrated excellence in their graduate studies from a diverse range of backgrounds will be considered. The positions will be for two years.

To apply, please submit a cover letter and most updated curriculum vitae. The cover letter should describe research experience and career goals. Please send electronic application to Dr. Hongbin Li ( Only successful candidates will be notified for interviews, at which time references letters will be requested for assessment.
