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

We encourage applications from all disciplines of neuroscience, particularly from individuals studying brain function in normal and/or disease states at the molecular, cellular, circuit and/or systems levels using innovative experimental and/or theoretical approaches. Researchers studying model animals or humans are welcome.

Candidates for the Team Leader position 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.

Review of applications will begin in January 2015 and continue until an ideal candidate is identified.

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