■ Background

In recent years, BMS has recruited dozens of young talents. Now, equipped with state-of-art research facilities, spacious research laboratories, and a pleasant academic environment, BMS develops fast and needs more interested young international talents to join us! Faculty Positions at the Assistant, Associate and Full Professor level are available. For the Assistant and Associate level, outstanding candidates with a PhD or equivalent degree and a strong record of research accomplishments are sought. For the Full Professor level, candidates should demonstrate a distinguished research record supported by peer-reviewed grants and high impact publications, and a strong ability in organizing a research program. Applicants with experience in any area relevant to basic medicine and public health will be considered. The successful candidate will also be expected to teach at the undergraduate and post-graduate level in biomedical and medical sciences. We offer a highly interactive and well-equipped work environment, and rich opportunities in collaboration with any clinical departments or affiliated hospitals. Recruited staff will be able to join any of the following research centres:

Research Centre of Neuroscience
The Center of Neuroscience at Zhejiang University is devoted to basic and translational neuroscience research, with topics covering neural signal transduction, synaptic function, neural circuits and behaviour, and neuropsychiatric diseases. It currently hosts 25 laboratories, led by Dr. DUAN Shumin, an academic member of Chinese Academy of Sciences. Aiming to build a world-class neuroscience research center, Zhejiang University has attracted excellent faculty members including several National Distinguished Young Scholars, the ChangJiang Scholars and the Young Thousand Scholars. It provides a highly stimulating training environment and state-of-art research facilities. Competitive salaries and benefits are offered. Field: Neurobiology, Psychology, Pharmacology, Human Anatomy Histology and Embryology, Cell Biology

Research Centre of Tumor
The research interests in the center for cancer research mainly focuses on the molecular and cellular biology of cancer, pathology and pathophysiology during tumorigenesis, and discovery of biomarkers and drug targets for early diagnosis and treatment of cancer.  The center is led by Professor Lai Maode who is a member of German National Academy of Sciences, and is composed of twelve principle investigators from basic, translational and clinical departments of Zhejiang University School of Medicine. Researchers in the center are funded by many national key projects and supported by national and provincial key disciplines and research platforms. Field: Pathology and Pathophysiology, Psychology, Pharmacology, Immunology

Research Centre of Infections and Immunity
The research in the center of infection and immunity mainly focus on the studying of the molecular and cellular basis of immune response including immunological recognition, immune cell activation, immunoregulation and immune tolerance. We are also interested in immune therapy against different tumors, basic and clinical research on pathogenic microorganisms, and the development of new vaccines against pathogenic microorganisms. The centre is led by Professor Cao Xuetao, an accademician of the Chinese engineering academy. Researchers in the center have been funded by many national key projects, including national district key project, 863 Project and National Science Fundation. Field: Pathogen Biology, Immunology

Research Centre of Stem Cell Biology & Regenerative Medicine
Research of the centre focuses on both basic and translational biomedical sciences. Using cutting-edge single-cell sequencing, CRISPR/CAS9 genome editing, super-resolution imaging and mouse gene targeting technologies , we are tackling fundamental questions on stem cell biology (skeleton, muscle, and blood stem/progenitor cell fate determination, somatic reprogramming, pluripotency regulation and direct lineage conversion), developmental biology (skeleton and placenta development), platelet and thrombosis regulation, scavenger receptor in lipid metabolism, and senescence/aging. In particular, the center, led by Prof Hongwei Ouyang, is recognized as one of the leaders in the area of skeleton system regeneration by employing interdisciplinary approaches which integrate biomedical science, material science, chemistry science and engineering technologies. Principle Investigators (PIs) of the centre are able to compete for national key grants and laboratories are currently well-funded by key grants from both Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC) and Ministry of Science and Technology of China (MOST). Field: Human Anatomy Histology and Embryology, Genetics, Pharmacology, Sports Medicine

Research Centre of Molecule Biology
The mission of the Research Centre of Molecular Medicine is to undertake internationally competitive research in crossed disciplines, including biochemistry & molecular biology, cell biology, genetics, molecular pathology, immunology etc. The centre PIs currently include a mixture of scientists from various background, facilitating active high-quality collaborations. Using molecular cell biology as a main research platform, the major topics of current research cover etiology and molecular mechanisms of diseases, including cancer, cardiovascular diseases, metabolism disorders, neurological diseases etc. The centre is led by Prof. Zhou Tianhua (a Distinguished Professor of NSF of China), and benefits from financial support of national key projects, such as 973, 863. Field: Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Psychology, Genetics
