RIKEN's research is based on synthesis and interdisciplinarity, and with free thinking as its basic philosophy, RIKEN promotes research that goes beyond the boundaries of conventional research fields, while at the same time responding to the needs of society from a strategic perspective.
RIKEN invites applications for the position of Laboratory Head (indefinite-term employment position) to serve in a leadership position in the following research area. The successful candidate will be responsible for directing research projects from a medium-to-long-term perspective.
Field: Non-coding RNA biology
Non-coding RNAs (ncRNAs) are often correlated with human diseases and also contribute to various biological phenomenon. However, the mechanisms of how ncRNAs function and how their expression is regulated remain unknown. From a translational perspective, expansion of ncRNA research is expected to contribute to nucleic acids therapeutics. RIKEN seeks a principal investigator who will lead a laboratory with a focus on elucidating ncRNA functions in biology and in human diseases. The successful candidate is expected to conduct cutting edge researches in ncRNA biology with experimental approaches, such as biochemistry, cell biology and genetics, and/or with data-driven approaches, such as structural biology, genomics and large-scale data-sciences.
RIKEN Center for Integrative Medical Sciences (IMS) provides the laboratory head with a starting-up package including research fund and a supportive environment for conducting independent research.
