Postdoctoral Fellow :

Department of Medical Physiology

Hamamatsu University School of Medicine, Japan


Highly motivated postdoctoral candidates are invited to lead real time imaging study of spatio-temporal regulatory mechanism of coagulation and fibrinolysis at the department of Medical Physiology at the Hamamatsu University School of Medicine, Hamamatsu, Japan.

Current research directions in the lab include the imaging analyses of the dynamics of functional molecules during the course of thrombus generation and its lysis both in-vivo and in-vitro studies. The lab is very well equipped with three highly modular custom built microscopes (TIRF, intra-vital confocal, and multiphoton) and complete facility for molecular biology and protein purification. In addition, there is a central laboratory in the same building equipped with other imaging instruments including confocal microscopy, Mass microscopy (high-resolution imaging mass spectrometry), MRI and PET for animals.

Candidates with a strong background in molecular biology, biochemistry, and/or cellular biology are encouraged to apply. Experience with platelets, coagulation and fibrinolysis, or vascular biology is highly desired.

The position offers very competitive salary and opportunities for career development. It is hoped that the candidate will take the opportunity to learn what we can offer and to teach what he/she can offer, publish, and develop a direction for their own independent career by the end of their postdoctoral experience. Our highly multidisciplinary lab offers many important technical and soft skills (see; http://www2.hama-med.ac.jp/w1a/phys2/english.html). Hamamatsu is a beautiful city and a good place to experience Japanese culture.
