The Unit Leader position is for scientists in the early stages of their career to conduct research in a small-scale laboratory. Highly motivated scientists eager to achieve breakthroughs in next-generation developmental biology in the areas listed are encouraged to apply.
2. Selection Process
Research proposals should be focused on the specific field of research for each program. The initial screening process will be based on the applicant’s application and 5-year research proposal. This will be followed by a final selection process, which includes an interview and seminar. Strong emphasis will be placed on the quality, feasibility and originality of the research proposal; priority will be given to proposals that take full advantage of the CDB’s facilities and resources, and advance challenging new concepts. Female and foreign scientists are strongly encouraged to apply.
The selection process will begin November 1, and will continue until suitable candidates have been selected.
