Scholarship Description:

Jiahong Chen, Associate Professor and PhD Supervisor at the City University of Hong Kong, received his M.S. degree from Harvard University (2006), PhD from Cambridge University (2010), and Postdoctoral Fellowship from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) (2012), and was selected as a Lab on a Chip Emerging Investigator in 2017 and Stanford’s “Top 2% most highly cited scientist” in 2022. Dr Chen’s group focuses on the application of microfluidics in the biomedical field to analyse cellular heterogeneity in human disease. The aim is to develop advanced tools to optimise diagnostic and therapeutic strategies for cancer, infectious diseases and other complex diseases to achieve precision medicine. He has published more than 75 scientific papers, many of them in top international journals such as Nature Communications, PNAS, JACS, Advanced Materials, Lab on a Chip, Analytical Chemistry, etc. He has made outstanding contributions to the field of biomedical analysis and detection.

 Available Subjects:

  • 1. droplet microfluidics,
  • 2. single cell analysis,
  • 3. synthetic biology,
  • 4. artificial intelligence sorting platform, and
  • 5. functional hydrogels.

Eligibility criteria:

  • A first-class remuneration package, promotion path and research platform; the annual salary will be around HK$450,000-500,000 per annum.
  • Postdoctoral research interests include microfluidics, single cell analysis, synthetic biology and intelligent sorting platform construction.
  • experience in publishing research papers as first author in biomedical engineering, mechanical engineering, synthetic biology, analytical chemistry and automation platform construction related to or overlapping with the above research directions during the Ph.D. period.4. At present, the group has already trained a number of talents, such as teachers from China’s high schools and the Chinese University of Hong Kong, microfluidic platform developers from Illumina, R&D staff from MediaTek, and senior researchers from Maxwell Planck, Germany. We warmly welcome graduate students or soon-to-be graduate students to join the microfluidic research!
