[Explanation of institution (recruitment background, institution details, explanation of project, etc.)]
The Radiation Effects Research Foundation in Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Japan, is a binational foundation supported by the Japanese and U.S. governments and is recognized throughout the world as a leader in the study of radiation health effects. It studies the health and medical conditions of atomic-bomb survivors in several large cohorts, including a cohort whose members have participated in biennial health examinations over a period of decades, and conducts fundamental research on the health effects of ionizing radiation and its interactions with genes, lifestyle, and environment. The Department of Molecular Biosciences has been studying radiation carcinogenesis and genetic effects of radiation exposure at molecular levels by using biosamples from the survivors and their offspring, as well as using animal models.

[Job details (duties, subject responsible for, etc.)]
To conduct research projects for the elucidation of molecular mechanisms of radiation-induced somatic mutagenesis and oncogenesis, and to develop measures to protect against those, using mouse models or biosamples from the survivors. Specifically, to investigate possible roles of oxidative stress in the process of mutagenesis and oncogenesis.
