Faculty Position (Team Leader)


The RIKEN Brain Science Institute (BSI) is seeking outstanding neuroscientists for tenure-track Team Leader (TL) positions (equivalent to U.S. Assistant or Associate Professor). At RIKEN BSI, Team Leaders enjoy complete intellectual independence. Their laboratories are well supported by internal funds and ample communal facilities. Administrative and teaching duties are minimal.

We encourage applications from all disciplines of neuroscience, but we are particularly interested in investigators who study basic mechanisms of brain function at the molecular, cellular, circuit and/or systems levels. We also welcome applications from researchers who are developing and using innovative approaches to study higher cognitive brain function.

Candidates for the Team Leader positions should have demonstrated the potential to develop an original, significant, and independent research program of excellence.

RIKEN BSI is located just outside of the international metropolis of Tokyo. English is used in most activities at BSI, including seminars and administration. Institutional support is available to help non-Japanese speaking scientists, whom we particularly encourage to apply.

RIKEN Brain Science Institute is an Equal Opportunity Employer. Women are strongly encouraged to apply.

Applicants should submit a cover letter briefly summarizing their research program and plan, curriculum vitae, detailed summary of current and proposed research, and arrange for three letters of recommendation, to be sent to:
