Content of job information
Nano Life Science Institute (WPI-NanoLSI) at Kanazawa University was launched in October 2017, with a support of World Premier International Research Center Initiative (WPI) program by MEXT, Japan. At NanoLSI, we will combine the world's most advanced technologies in bio-scanning probe microscopy (SPM) and supramolecular chemistry to develop novel nanoprobe techniques that allow us to directly image, analyze, and manipulate nanodynamics of proteins, metabolites, and nucleic acids both on the surface of and inside the cell. In addition, through the use of innovative nanoprobe techniques combined with other advanced analytical methods, we aim to achieve fundamental understandings of the nano-level mechanisms underlying basic cellular functions (e.g., cell differentiation/proliferation, stemness, signal transduction, genome dynamics, etc.) and their cancer specific abnormalities. To this end, we will perform detailed comparisons between nanodynamics inside normal and cancer cells. Based on the developed technologies and knowledge acquired through such research works, we will establish a new research field termed “nanoprobe life science," which aims to achieve nano-level understandings of various life phenomena including cancer using advanced nanoprobe technologies.

We are looking for an excellent researcher who can work on the following research subjects as an "Assistant Professor" at NanoLSI.
1. Understanding of molecular mechanisms and biological significance for regulation of cancer and stem cell behavior by nutrients and metabolites.
2. Development of methods for identification, measurement or visualization of important nutrients and metabolites.
