Applications are invited for appointment as Post-doctoral Fellow in the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering (Ref.: 502241), to commence as soon as possible for one year, with the possibility of renewal subject to satisfactory performance.

AlphaHKU at the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering is a multidisciplinary research group with the major focus on developing new photonic tools which help solve a myriad of critical problems in biomedicine, life science and basic physics. One key vision is to exploit new-generation tools for image-based cell/tissue characterization and bioinformatic strategies applied in basic science and biomedicine for high-throughput and high-content single-cell or multi-omics analysis, with close collaboration with biomedical researchers as well as medical practitioners in hospitals. More information about the group can be found on the group’s Facebook page ( and website (

The appointee will participate in research projects related to any one of the following areas:

- Ultrahigh-throughput optical bioimaging instrumentation (e.g. quantitative phase imaging, 3D fluorescence microscopy) from single-cell to tissue level;
- Development of new ultra-large-scale microfluidic cell-based bioassays; and
- High-speed microfluidic cell-sorter for single-cell analysis.

In particular, the projects focus on new strategies for next generation of single-cell analysis applied in life-science research as well as clinical diagnosis (e.g. cancer screening). Enquiries about the duties of the post should be sent to Professor Kevin Tsia at .

A highly competitive salary commensurate with qualifications and experience will be offered, in addition to annual leave and medical benefits. At current rates, salaries tax does not exceed 15% of gross income.
