     Our research focuses on the pathogenesis of enteric bacterial pathogens, including Vibrio parahaemolytics, Vibrio cholerae, and Salmonella enterica spp. We believe that understanding detailed mechanisms of bacterial pathogenicity gives us a clue to the development of effective vaccines and establishment of new treatment strategies without antibiotics.
    (1) Elucidation of the mechanism of virulence of pathogenic Vibrio spp.
    (2) Molecular epidemiological studies in endemic areas and identification of factors contributing to epidemics
    (3) Analysis of the pathogenic mechanism of Salmonella and development of vaccines
     We are looking for a "next-generation researcher who can take a leading role in one of these themes and develop research on bacterial infectious diseases endemic in tropical regions on a global scale using a bioinformatics approach". In addition to research activities, the candidate will also assist in educational activities such as lectures and practical training related to bacteriology and infectious diseases at graduate and undergraduate schools.
