RIKEN offers up to one junior Principal Investigator (PI) position, a RIKEN Hakubi Fellow position, for an exceptionally talented female researcher for a maximum of 7 years in the framework of the Sechi Kato Program. The RIKEN Hakubi Fellow is expected to engage in creative and ambitious research in natural and mathematical sciences, including research areas bordering the humanities and social sciences, by leading her independent research team. Proposals intended to resolve urgent issues that humankind faces today are also welcome (See for example, Sustainable Development Goals of United Nations).
One of the important goals of the RIKEN Hakubi Fellows Program is to foster stimulating interactions among the Fellows with diverse backgrounds and to create an intellectual hub of scientists with different disciplines within and beyond RIKEN.

Who was Sechi Kato? – Sechi Kato (1893-1989) is a pioneering female scientist who developed spectrometric analysis of organic materials in Japan, and the first female Chief Scientist of RIKEN.

What is “Hakubi”?—Hakubi is a proverb derived from classical Chinese literature. There were five siblings in ancient China, all excellent, but the most brilliant one had white (haku) eyebrows (bi).

Qualifications
Applicants should be talented female researchers who are able to engage in research at RIKEN on a full-time basis with the ability to manage their research laboratories as PIs. A doctoral degree is not necessarily required for this position.

Research environment
In addition to the salary, a successful candidate will be allocated a research budget of 10 to 40 million yen per year depending on the research plan and the progress. The Hakubi Fellow is assigned a laboratory space of about 150 square meters in total at Wako campus or, if considered necessary, at one of RIKEN’s branches in Japan. The final details will be decided through discussions with the Hakubi Fellows Program Head.

Term of employment and salary
Employment starts on April, 2021 or later and the contract period is up to a total of 5 years. Upon evaluation the period can be extended for additional 2 years, for a maximum of 7 years.

The annual salary is approximately 10 million yen per year (including tax). In addition, commuting and housing allowances are provided according to the RIKEN regulations.

Application and screening procedures
See our website for details: https://www.riken.jp/en/careers/programs/hakubi/sechikato2021/
Applicants of the Sechi Kato Program may also apply for the regular Hakubi Fellows Program.
The first stage of screening is an evaluation of submitted documents, the results of which is notified by early September. Successful applicants then proceed to the second stage, the interview, which is currently scheduled to take place in autumn.

Deadline
Online registration: 24:00 (JST), June 16 July 21, 2020

Postdoctoral positions are available with Professor Ya-Ming Hou at Thomas Jefferson University, Sidney Kimmel Medical College. We focus on tRNA epigenetic changes and explore their roles in gene expression at the codon level and in response to cellular stress, which are new concepts at the cutting edge of molecular biology and central dogma. We use a synthetic biology approach with CRISPR/Cas-edited genomes to determine how modifications in tRNA impact cell fitness at the codon level. Our lab is intellectually stimulating and encouraging global networking. Current projects are tRNA epigenetic biology:

In response to environmental stress
In discovery of new bacterial physiology and antibiotic therapeutics
In neurodegenerative diseases.
