Announcement for Assistant professor or Research fellow (Vietnam Research Station, Center for Infectious Disease Research in Asia and Africa, Institute of Tropical Medicine, Nagasaki University)
At the Vietnam Research Station, Center for Infectious Disease Research in Asia and Africa, Institute of Tropical Medicine, Nagasaki University, we have been conducting basic research on infectious diseases such as emerging/reemerging infectious diseases investigating genomic sequences, pathogenicity, epidemiological key factors, etc. In addition to conducting fieldwork, we conduct pathogen isolation, serological surveys, etc., to reveal characteristics of pathogens and risks on public health.
We are currently recruiting a researcher to work as an Assistant Professor/Research fellow in the AMED Program "Study on Emerging and Re-emerging Infectious Diseases in Vietnam" at the Nagasaki University Vietnam Research Station in the National Institute of Hygiene and Epidemiology (NIHE), Hanoi, Vietnam.
The appointee will support both domestic and international collaborators including our laboratory staffs at the Vietnam Research Station, conducting the appointee's own research projects. Therefore, in the selection process, we will check the experience of virological/microbiological, molecular biological, and epidemiological analyses and fieldwork; however, we will mainly evaluate the communication ability in various collaboration research and motivation on research outside the appointee's area of expertise.

We are seeking to recruit a Team Leader (principal investigator) to conduct advanced research to elucidate the fundamental principles of biological phenomena at molecular scales. In recent years, life science research fields exploring molecular and cellular scales have reached a major crossroads, with increasing importance being placed on research efforts bridging molecules and cells while taking into account their hierarchical and dynamic nature. There is a demand for researchers who can lead research that aims to unveil and understand fundamental cellular phenomena and architecture at the molecular and atomic levels. We encourage proposals that include advanced research and technological developments in structural biology, particularly using cryo-electron microscopy.
