Job Description

TWO (2) POSTDOCTORAL POSITIONS are available in Chang Liu group in the Department of Biophysics and Biophysical Chemistry at the Johns Hopkins University, a private research and education institute with an excellent research environment and superb research facilities. We study coronavirus-host interactions in gene regulation using a combination of structural biology (cryo-EM, cryo-ET, and X-ray crystallography), single-molecule biophysics, protein-nucleic acid biochemistry, genomics, and cell biology (related publications: Liu C, et al. Nature (2019); Liu C, et al. Science (2021); Liu C, et al. Nat Rev Immunol (2021)). We are seeking highly motivated postdoctoral applicants with strong expertise in structural biology, virology, immunology, molecular biology, cell biology, or a related field.

The positions are fully funded by NIH/NIAID for at least three years (The initial appointment is for one year with renewal upon satisfactory performance evaluations). The salary rate follows NIH and JHU guidelines.



  1. Ph.D. or an equivalent degree in structural biology, virology, immunology, molecular biology, cell biology, or a related field.
  2. Extensive experience in basic techniques (molecular cloning, cell culture, protein expression and purification, Western blot, flow cytometry, etc.).
  3. Expertise in structural biology, particularly cryo-EM, is highly desirable; prior experience in RNA biochemistry or cryo-ET is a plus.
  4. Candidates should be highly motivated, with good oral communication and written skills in English.
