Such research aims at comprehensive performance for preservation and genetic modification of bioresources in order to develop new animal models. This time, the Center is seeking a specialist who performs reproductive physiology and technology using primates. Prior experience with non-human primates is not essential. Adequate knowledge of Japanese is required, as the successful candidate is required to fully participate in faculty meetings and other administrative matters conducted in Japanese, and to lecture graduate students in either English or Japanese. Faculty members are also expected to promote the research of primates from a broad perspective, to teach and supervise graduate students, and to contribute to the administration of the institute.
