The International Research Organization for Advanced Science and Technology (IROAST), established from April, 2016 in Kumamoto University, Japan, is pleased to invite applications for tenure-track positions at the rank of Professor or Associate Professor for the enhancement and development of international research projects ongoing at the Graduate School of Science and Technology. The positions are available from August 1, 2016, or as soon as possible thereafter. Appointments at this rank are for 5-year terms. After qualification (see section IV), successful applicants will be promoted to tenure posts in the Graduate School of Science and Technology within 5 years. The four priority research areas are as follows: (1) Nano Material Science, (2) Green Energy, (3) Environmental Science and (4) Advanced Green Bio.
In cooperation with the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF), this program provides funding for international joint research carried between excellent researchers in Japanese universities and institutes and their Swiss counterparts. In carrying out the joint projects, a synergistic effect is sought by such means as sharing resources and research facilities. This program also aims to enhance and expand training opportunities for young researchers.
To foster highly capable researchers with wide international perspectives, this fellowship gives excellent young Japanese researchers an opportunity to carry out long-term research at an overseas university or research institution.
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.
