Nakajima group in FRIS, Tohoku University is looking for a motivated postdoc researcher, who is interested in and contribute to the research program, “Investigating mechanisms of rejuvenation in basal metazoans and their potential applications". This research program is supported by a highly competitive AMED-PRIME grant.
Our group is trying to elucidate the molecular and cellular mechanisms underlying tissue homeostasis, diseases and environmental responses, using both fruit fly Drosophila and small jellyfish Cladonema. We are currently pushing forward a project of animal rejuvenation or a type of regeneration program observed in hydrozoan jellyfish species. By applying molecular and cell biology with bioinformatics analyses, we investigate mechanisms of animal rejuvenation. Furthermore, we aim to establish a new research model by introducing genetic tools into jellyfish studies.
