Senior Research Scientist, Research Scientist or Postdoc Researcher in plant biology/biotechnology
RIKEN is Japan's largest comprehensive research institution renowned for high-quality research in a diverse range of scientific disciplines. http://www.riken.jp/en/
Biomacromolecules Research Team (http://enzyme.riken.jp/index_en.html) is seeking a few senior research scientists, research scientists or postdoctoral researchers who can work for the plant organellar modification and organellar biotechnology in the JST-ERATO Numata Organellar Reaction Cluster Project (http://www.jst.go.jp/erato/numata/index-e.html).
The successful candidates will study on transformation, bioimaging (electron microscopy, confocal laser scanning microscopy, atomic force microscopy), and metabolic engineering of mitochondria and plastids in plants as well as basic biology related to plant organelles. We seek a broadly trained plant scientists working in plant cell/tissue culture and plastid transformation. Areas of focus may include but are not limited to plastid modification, wood science, plant mitochondrial biology, 3D electron microscopy imaging, and live imaging of multiple organellar interactions.
