Post-Doctoral Position for Molecular Technology Development
In the laboratory of Hanlee P. Ji, M.D., Associate Director of Stanford Genome Technology Center, Associate Professor, Dept. of Medicine Division of Oncology, Stanford School of Medicine.
Job Description 
Ji Research Group is searching for a postdoctoral biomedical engineer for novel molecular technology development. The new technologies and methods aim to substitute or complement existing technologies for genetics, genomics, molecular biology, and molecular diagnosis. Therefore, our focus is on the genetic information that is not accessible with current technologies. The examples are complex genetic rearrangements, microsatellite instability, and long-range haplotype. Moreover, we have a major interest in challenging samples such as genetic materials from single cell, complex genetic mixtures, FFPE, and liquid biopsy. Most of our work uses next-generation DNA sequencing. For more information about the lab, please visit our website:
Available Resources
Illumina sequencers (Owned: HiSeq 2500, MiSeq, NextSeq, iSeq; Access to NovaSeq), 10X Chromium, automated liquid handlers

Required Qualifications: 

• Ph.D. in biomedical engineering, analytical chemistry, human genetics or related field 
• (optional) Experience in recent molecular technologies (e.g., next generation sequencing, ddPCR)
