Postdoc position(Team Leader): RIKEN 1397 views


The Center for Biosystems Dynamics Research (BDR) views the functions of molecules, cells, and organs that support all life stages of organisms as a dynamic system, and aims to elucidate developmental, growth and aging phenomena as well as apply their findings to develop regenerative medicine and diagnostics, thereby contributing to the extension of healthy life expectancies

About the position:

  1. We are recruiting a PhD scientist who is interested in and able to execute in vivo analysis using ferrets as a model to answer the questions of (1) how cortical neural stem cells generate clonal progenies with a high complexity, which is a hallmark of gyrencephalic species, (2) how neural stem cell progenies with different clonal size and complexity in these complex brains are integrated into well-organized micro-columnar architectures, (3) how neural networks in the columnar structure operate in higher brain functions, and (4) such complex brains simultaneously acquire fragile properties against perturbations.
  2. We request candidates high skills for imaging techniques and neuronal activity measurement to investigate these problems.

Eligibility criteria:

  • A person who is able to dedicate themselves to the job by communicating, coordinating and collaborating smoothly with people in and out of the laboratory.
  • A PhD holder in the area related to the Job description.

 How to apply:

  • Send application materials (PDF format) to Email: Kobe-jobs [at]
    The Email title should be: “[CA2001] Application for research scientist of Laboratory for Cell Asymmetry”
  • *If you have any research-related questions, please contact fumio.matsuzaki[at] (Laboratory for Cell Asymmetry, Dr. Fumio Matsuzaki)
