Postdoc and Technician in Tokyo

PostDoc and Research Assistant/Technician positions are available in Tokyo Medical and Dental University, Tokyo, Japan.

We use C. elegans to study alternative splicing regulation in metazoan. We employ a multidisciplinary approach using genetics, molecular biology, biochemistry and informatics.

We are seeking a highly motivated individual with a PhD degree in molecular biology, biochemistry, genetics, or related sciences for a postdoc. Experience with C. elegans is not absolutely essential.

We welcome a postdoc and a technician from all over the world, and a two- or three-year commitment is desired.

Interested applicants should contact or submit their CV to KUROYANAGI Hidehito [].
