About the Project
I seek to recruit graduate students to join us in these endeavors supported by attractive post-graduate student fellowships of up to HK$319,200 (approximately US$41,000) per year.
Graduate student projects
1) Technologies for cell fate reprogramming and stem cell differentiation
2) Rational protein design and directed molecular evolution of reprogramming factors
3) Sequence-structure-function analysis of engineered ‘super TFs’
4) Authentic cell models for neurodegenerative disease
About the PI and the lab:
Ralf Jauch joined the School of Biomedical Sciences at the University of Hong Kong as Associate Professor in 2018. He did his undergraduate studies at the Friedrich-Schiller-University in Jena, Germany, and the University of Manchester and obtained his PhD degree in 2005 at the Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry in Göttingen. In 2006, he joined the Genome Institute of Singapore, A*STAR, and stayed for seven years as a PostDoc and Research Scientist. From 2013-2018, he was a Principal Investigator at the Guangzhou Institutes of Biomedicine and Health, Chinese Academy of Sciences, where he helped to set up the GIBH- Max Planck Center for Regenerative Biomedicine. The culturally diverse laboratory currently has nine members.
