IPS-CAS - Guangzhou Women and Children's Medical Center Joint Research Center for Infection and Immunity Postdoctoral Training Opportunity

1. Brief Introduction of Institut Pasteur of Shanghai  

Institut Pasteur of Shanghai – Chinese Academy of Sciences (IPS-CAS) is a scientific research institute founded in 2004 by the Chinese Academy of Sciences, the Shanghai Municipal Government, and the Institut Pasteur in Paris. It is a member of the Institut Pasteur International Network (IPIN), the WHO and other NGOs. IPS-CAS creates synergies between the Institut Pasteur and CAS networks, leveraging all the assets of Shanghai as one of Asia’s leading business and technology hubs. Our scientists are engaged in a broad range of infectious disease research programs ranging from viral hepatitis, HIV, respiratory infections to virus-induced cancers.   

IPS-CAS is in an ideal strategic position to conduct research and development in life sciences in China. Together with its academic and industry partners, IPS’s goal is to develop product candidates in the field of diagnostics, vaccines and therapeutics.  

2. Joint Post-doctoral Training Program  

IPS-CAS and Guangzhou Women and Children's Medical Center (GWCMC) –Joint Research Center in Infection and Immunity have launched a postdoctoral training program. Now this program opens to young scientists from all over the world.  

This program focuses on translational medicine, and any candidates who have experience or expertise in infection and immunology, or its related fields, are encouraged to apply for. Our program is featured by dual-mentor system from both the Institute and the Medical Center, post-doctor research fund (up to 0.5 million RMB), and multiple training sites with an emphasis on translational studies from basic bench work to clinical application. Candidates should have a recent PhD or its related degree, self-motivated, fluent in either Chinese or English, with a tracking record of successful graduate training. People from any minority are also encouraged to apply for. The salary and benefit will be highly competitive, dependent on the qualification. However, once successfully enrolled, and minimal annual income should be no less than 220.000 RMB (before tax), in addition to attractive incentive awards.
