Awarded to excellent young researchers, these fellowships offer the fellows an opportunity to focus on a freely chosen research topic based on their own innovative ideas. Ultimately, the program works to foster and secure excellent researchers.
A postdoctoral position is available in the Nakamura Lab at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center (CCHMC). The lab focuses on the molecular mechanism of obesity-induced metabolic diseases, especially type 2 diabetes, by focusing on RNA-protein network/signaling and its impact onmetabolism. The Nakamura Lab is located in the newly-built Clinical Sciences Pavilion at CCHMC where postdocs benefit from a modern open lab space with highly interactive colleagues and access to cutting-edge core facilities including gene editing technology.
The Japan-Affiliated Research Community Network (JARC-Net) is a database of researchers and experts who are interested in the research cooperation between Japan and other countries/areas. Researchers and experts registered in JARC-Net ("members") may sign into the system and search the profiles of other JARC-Net members. Thus JARC-Net provides you opportunity to find colleagues and new research partners, and to build and strengthen research networks.
Position summary: Research Center for Materials Science is seeking a tenure-track assistant professor “Jokyo” (non-PI [principal investigator] assistant professor) for the Laboratory of Biochemistry.
To advance science and technology within the Asia-Pacific and Africa region, it will be necessary to foster talented young researchers having wide perspectives that transcend individual disciplines and lofty values derived from the region’s inherent cultures.
To foster such researchers, HOPE Meetings have been organized by the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science since 2008. The title “HOPE” signifies the promise held for young scientists and optimism for a bright science and technology future in the Asia-Pacific and Africa region.
HOPE Meetings give opportunities for excellent doctoral students and young researchers selected from countries/areas in the region to engage in interdisciplinary discussions with Nobel laureates and other distinguished scientists. Their programs include dialogue with distinguished scientists pioneering the frontiers of knowledge; exchanges among the participants themselves, who live under the same roof for one week; and cultural lectures and activities.
◆ Scope and Purpose of the Program
This program is offered at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) by the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS), in cooperation with the NIH’s Fogarty International Center (FIC), and the NIH Office of Intramural Research. It is designed to support meritorious biomedical and behavioral research projects undertaken in NIH laboratories by young Japanese postdoctoral researchers who intend to hold research positions at Japanese universities or other academic institutions or public institutions in Japan in the future.
