Postdoctoral Researcher Positions at ITbM
Institute of Transformative Bio-Molecules (WPI-ITbM) at Nagoya University is seeking highly motivated postdoctoral researchers (up to 3 positions) with a strong background of plant biology or organic chemistry. ITbM is a newly founded research institute at Nagoya University that tackles important biological questions by applying original techniques of molecular synthesis. In October 2019, we launched a new project entitled “Atras of plant hormone flows at single-cell resolution" under a commitment by JST CREST (Reseach area: [Multicellular interaction] Development of technology platforms for quantitative analysis of spatiotemporal multicellular interaction), aiming at developing a small-molecule technology which enables direct visualization of the cell-to-cell movement of plant hormones. The successful candidates will join to groups of plant science (Yuichiro Tsuchiya, Designated Associate Professor; Yoshikatsu Sato, Designated Associate Professor) or a group of organic chemistry (Masakazu Nambo, Designated Lecturer) to conduct this interdsciplinary project. We are also seeking a postdoctoral researcher who will contribute to this project from computational science at Institute for Chemical Reaction Design and Discovery (WPI-ICReDD) at Hokkaido University.
