Postdoc Researcher: Super-cutting-edge Grand and Advanced Research (SUGAR) Program 374 views

The Institute for Extra-cutting edge Science and Technology Avant-garde Research (X-star) at Japan Agency for Marine-Earth Science and Technology (JAMSTEC) is inviting applications for a Postdoctoral Researcher (EGP20-006) in Super-cutting-edge Grand and Advanced Research (SUGAR) Program.

About the position:
  • The selected Postdoctoral Researcher to conduct research on a Human Frontier Science Program (HFSP) research project titled “Stable propagation of a minimal synthetic cell (December 1, 2020 – November 30, 2023 Principal Investigator: Yutetsu Kuruma)” under the research area “Construction and application of artificial (synthetic) cells built up by assembling biomolecules and genes within lipid vesicles (liposomes)”.
  • The purpose of this contract research is to construct a self-reproducible, artificial (synthetic) cell system using cell-free protein synthesis and lipid membrane vesicle technology. Specifically, we aim to rebuild the process of cell propagation based on the reconstruction of biochemical reactions within membrane vesicles, and to investigate this process using soft matter physics and/or a chemical engineering approach.


  • Preparation and microscopic observation of vesicles (liposomes)
  • Perform cell-free biochemical reactions; analyze reaction products by LCMS
  • Develop and functionally evaluate artificial cell systems capable of synthesizing membrane proteins
  • Prepare research reports and academic manuscripts for peer review

Research Fields: Synthetic Biology, Biochemistry, Biophysics
