Open Position: Assistant Professor（Three-year fixed-term contract）
Main Duties: At the Nano Life Science Institute, as “Assistant Professor”, it plays a central role in promoting integrated research in the fields of nanometrology and life science disciplines
【Specific research contents】
① We have visualized morphological dynamics of living mammalian cells by high-speed AFM [Shibata et al. Sci. Rep. 5, 8724, (2015)]. Using HS-AFM combined with optical microscope, dynamic morphological changes and a protein localization of living mammalian cells will be investigated.
② We recently visualized a real-space and real-time dynamics of DNA cleavage reaction of CRISPR-Cas9 by using HS-AFM [Shibata et al. Nat. Commun. 8, 1430 (2017)]. To expand this projects, visualization of dynamics of various proteins, including membrane proteins, protein kinases and nucleases, will be investigated.

Open Faculty Positions in Life Sciences
Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology Graduate University (OIST)
Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology Graduate University (https://www.oist.jp/) invites applications for at least 2 new faculty positions as part of its planned expansion. Targeted areas for the current search include, but not limited to, Aging, Cancer Biology, Developmental Biology, Disease Models, Epigenomics, Host-microbe Interaction, Immunology, Organoids, and Synthetic Biology.
Excellent scholarship and creativity are the main criteria. We are particularly interested in scholars who complement and extend existing strengths at OIST and have the potential to interact broadly with the interdisciplinary OIST community. In addition, successful candidates must also demonstrate a commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion in research and education.
Successful candidates are expected to establish an active and independent program of research, to supervise Ph.D. students, to teach in the graduate program, and perform university services as required. Generous research resources will be provided, which may be supplemented with external grants. Appointments will be Tenure-Track or Tenured. Starting date is flexible.
Applications should include the following:
Information and instructions regarding application submission: https://groups.oist.jp/facultypositions
Application Deadline: September 30, 2018 (EDT)
OIST offers a world-class research environment with an international research community and opportunities for interdisciplinary research. Research and teaching are conducted in English. The campus is situated in a beautiful subtropical setting in Okinawa, Japan.
OIST Graduate University is an equal opportunity educator and employer that is actively working to increase the diversity of its faculty, students and staff. OIST has implemented policies designed to promote a culture of diversity and inclusion and a family friendly working environment (See the Equality and Diversity brochure, https://groups.oist.jp/sites/default/files/imce/u100221/Equality%20and%20Diversity(E)_OIST_Diversity.pdf ). These include considerations for hiring and supporting dual career couples, “stop the clock” options for new parents, an on site child care facility for children from 2 months to 6 years of age, and after-school and holiday programs for K-6 children. The University strongly encourages applications from women and other underrepresented groups.
Inquiries should be directed to Dr. Milind Purohit, Dean of Faculty Affairs, email@example.com
A postdoctoral position is now available in the Department of Pharmacology in the School of Medicine at Case Western Reserve University. The laboratory is currently funded by the NIH and a private foundation that focuses on Usher Syndrome. Our research focus is retinal cell biology with the goal of discovering small molecule therapy for photoreceptor degenerative disorders. To elucidate the disease mechanisms, we genetically dissect the process of photoreceptor morphogenesis and maintenance in vertebrate animals. Our laboratory pioneered real-time imaging of proteins and small molecules within the retina, and takes advantage of state of the art confocal/multiphoton/STED microscopy techniques. Our research also heavily depends on the tissue culture system to biochemically study the components required for photoreceptor morphogenesis/maintenance. For more details, check our website: https://www.imanishi-lab.org
The applicant is expected to be highly independent and be capable of designing experiments and conducting hypothesis-based research projects. The candidate should have a strong background in cell biology, molecular biology, or biochemistry. Knowledge of fluorescence microscopy is favorable, although not necessary. Salary will be commensurate with experience and will adhere to current NIH guidelines.
Please submit your CV, brief statement of research interest, and contact information for three references via E-mail to Dr. Yoshikazu Imanishi (firstname.lastname@example.org).
