Content of job information

A multidisciplinary team in the laboratory of Dr. Takanori Takebe is seeking to recruit a highly motivated assistant professor to lead a stem cell and organoid research investigating their potential for understanding human development, evolution and precision. The self-organizing tissue-based approach coupled with pluripotent stem cell technology has just begun as a promising field for designing a miniature organ, namely an organoid, yet the mechanism of driving complex but stereotyped tissue self-organization remains largely unknown. Therefore, Dr Takebe's lab proposes to take a “reverse reductionism approach"for a holistic mechanistic understanding of the dynamic nature of a self-developing system.
