PhD/master's Candidate 

Graduate School of Frontier Science Initiative, Kanazawa University is seeking candidates for PhD and master's students in the fields of Lifescience and Biotechnology, Neuroscience, Chemistry and Applied Chemistry, Bioengineering, Mechanical Engineering, Archaeology, or Cognitive Science.

Challenge Scientific and Technological Innovation through fusion of disciplines

The Graduate School of Frontier Science Initiative is a graduate program that focuses on "fusion of disciplines" to create a new academic discipline by fusing multiple fields of expertise. There are two divisions according to the spread of the fusion of disciplines; Division of Transdisciplinary Sciences and Division of Nano Life Science.

Division of Transdisciplinary Sciences

The Division of Transdisciplinary Sciences aims to create new scientific fields by various types of fusion of disciplines such as the fusion of humanities and science & engineering, the fusion of humanities and medicine, and the fusion of engineering and health science.

The research filed of the faculty members are widespread, including archeology, economics, cognitive science, medicine, pharmaceutical science, health sciences, physics, chemistry, biology, biotechnology, mechanical engineering, and electronics. While making use of their own specialized fields, they are actively involved in other fields and aim to create new academic fields and science and technology.

 

Division of Nano Life Science

The focus is on the fusion of disciplines to elucidate life phenomena occurring at the nanometer scale. We are working on a wide range of research topics from basic research to applied research. Basic research involves further developing nanometrology using scanning probe microscopy, such as atomic force microscopy, by combining it with supramolecular chemistry to elucidate biological phenomena through imaging of living cells and single-molecule imaging of proteins, and applied research involves cancer diagnosis and treatment. The educational program is deeply supported by the Nano Life Science Institute, Kanazawa University, which is one of the World Premier International Research Center Initiative (WPI).
