Life Science and Biotechnology

A society in which people live a long life in good health and at ease, and a sustainable society with reduced environmental load is desired. We are contributing to life innovation by developing new technologies to evaluate health and to promote drug discovery, as well as to maintain, improve, and recover health according to individual conditions. We are also contributing to green innovation by developing technologies to reduce environmental loads using bioprocesses.

Type A (Tenure-track position)/Type B (Tenured position)

The below-listed job opportunities are for both Type A (normally for 5 years) and Type B - which type of position applies will be determined following the selection process. The term for tenure track position may be shortened, e.g. 3 years or 4 years, commensurate with the candidate's previous achievements and professional experience. Research staff on tenure track are entitle to undergo a tenure rewiew one and a half years before the term ends.
