Introduction of LSIZJU:

The Life Sciences Institute (LSI) was founded in October, 2009 as the first Special Academic Unit of Zhejiang University. Located in Hangzhou, one of the most historic, picturesque and livable cities in China, LSI aims to be an internationally recognized biomedical research institution. LSI has assembled a Scientific Advisory Board comprised of world-renowned biological scientists to offer consultation on faculty recruitment and institutional development, and continued its effort to recruit top-tier scientists world-wide of any nationalities to establish laboratories focusing on fundamental questions in life and biomedical sciences.

LSI currently has 28 faculty members in areas of cancer biology, regenerative medicine, inflammation biology, systems biology and structural biology. LSI is empowered by unparalleled freedom in academic, graduate education, personnel management, and financial flexibility within the university. We offer a state-of-the-art core facility, including next-generation sequencer, super-resolution microscopes, multi-color flow cytometer, mass spectrometer, small animal in vivo imaging facility, zebrafish facility and a large number of shared facilities on campus.

LSI has achieved impressive accomplishments in the past few years. To further strengthen its international competitiveness, LSI is expanding its research programs with top scientists. We cordially invite outstanding scientists at all levels around the world to join LSI.

In order to enrich the research team, LSI recruits outstanding postdoctoral around the world.


(1) A Ph.D. degree in life sciences, basic medicine or other related fields, with publications in international journals. Trainings in cancer biology, stem cell biology, inflammation biology, systems biology and other disease-related areas are particularly preferred.
(2) Self-motivation and innovative thinking with solid techniques in cell biology, biochemistry and molecular biology.
(3) Ability to understand and criticize research papers in English.
(4) Excellent writing and oral communication skills in English, a strong sense of responsibility and team spirit.
(5) Independence in scientific research with guidance from the PI.


Salary will be commensurate with experience, following the guideline of Zhejiang University. A competitive salary package will be provided (excluding mentor’ work allowance and postdoctoral fellowship funded by the Institute).

*Special Funding

Ph.D. graduates from the world’s top 100 universities and colleges, foreign Ph.D. graduates from top overseas universities or other outstanding PhD graduates will be provided 200,000  RMB annually by the university, and it should reach above 300,000 RMB annually with the fund from the mentor and the Institute.

*Key Funding

Foreign Ph.D. graduates or Ph.D. graduates from top overseas universities, universities in the list of China’s “Double-First Class” initiative or preponderant disciplines, will be provided 100,000 RMB -120,000  RMB annually by the university. It should reach higher than 170,000 RMB for candidates plus the fund from the mentor and the Institute.

* Standard Funding
