Research Scientist or Senior Research Scientist, Environmental Metabolic Analysis Research Team
Seeking a Research Scientist or Senior Research Scientist (Indefinite-term employment position), in RIKEN CSRS, Japan
Research Field and Overview
Our team intends to develop novel environmental analysis such as by a bird’s-eye view of metabolism caused by ecosystem biodiversity, based on technical advancements of our NMR approaches toward metabolite and biomass mixtures, as well as inorganic elements and microbial ecosystem analyses combined with bioinformatics and chemoinformatics approaches. Namely, we promote both international and industrial collaboration in order to contribute for effective utilization of chemical resources, by analyzing laboratory systems, industrial (agriculture, forestry, and fishery) process, and natural environment (hydrosphere and geosphere, as well as outer space).
Research Scientist or Senior Research Scientist: 1 position
Based on our original NMR methodology for the chemical complexity, this will be applied for environmental sample evaluation, specifically followed with mathematical modeling and prediction science. Based on these basic science platforms, we will also expand to the innovative application for environmental prediction, fishery, food and materials science.
The successful candidate is expected to conduct research and development on topics specified above and to contribute to the management of the laboratory. Senior Research Scientist is also expected to assist the laboratory head.
