LIMMS/CNRS-IIS IRL 2820 (Laboratory for Integrated Micro Mechatronic Systems) is an international laboratory between the French CNRS (Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique) and Institute of Industrial Science (IIS), The University of Tokyo, located in Komaba, Tokyo. LIMMS has more than 27 years of experience in international cooperative research and has welcomed more than 300 researchers from France and Europe.


LIMMS opens a new postdoctoral position in the laboratory of Professor Beomjoon Kim, Institute of Industrial Science, University of Tokyo, having main emphasis on microneedle-mediated transdermal drug delivery system, bio sensors, as well as optical therapy. The project in collaboration with Dr. Vincent Salles (Univ of Lyon and ) is focused on tissue engineering using specific scaffold preparation.  LIMMS/CNRS-IIS (IRL2820).

The project is also conducted in collaboration with two other teams belonging to the same institute of the University of Tokyo: Pr. Yukiko Matsunaga and Pr. Yoshiho Ikeuchi.

Poste et missions


Principal investigator and his colleagues at the Institute of Industrial Science (IIS), the University of Tokyo, are working on the in vitro development of complex tissues vascularized in 3D. In tissue engineering, producing in vitro organs or part of organs remains a challenge on several aspects. One of the issues that researchers are still facing is first producing vascularized tissues, and then implanting these new tissues into the patient’s body by connecting the implant to the vascular system of the patient. Our scientific approach is to develop protocols to create interconnected vessels with controlled sizes, as well as to control the positioning of surrounding cells with a technology based on the use of spheroids.

The project consists of (1) the manufacturing of a resorbable scaffold by direct writing electrospinning, and (2) the study of cell behavior to form new vessels and adapt co-culture protocols. The prospective postdoctoral researcher is expected to join and pursue this project.

The laboratory is well equipped regarding scaffold fabrication and characterization techniques. Furthermore, this project being at the interface between materials science and biology, it will be conducted in collaboration with two other teams belonging to the same institute of the University of Tokyo: Pr. Yukiko Matsunaga and Pr. Yoshiho Ikeuchi. Another (international) collaboration already underway, will expand the expertise and scientific contributions.



Fellowship periods and periods for arrival in Japan:

Two years starting between September 1st and November 30, 2023

Rewards: Paid equivalent to the JSPS Post-Doctoral position

1. Airfare: A round-trip air ticket (based on JSPS’S regulations)

2. Maintenance Allowance: 362,000 JPY per month

3. Miscellaneous: A setting-in allowance of 200,000 JPY, Overseas travel insurance, etc.



Mobilité géographique :



Skills: Candidates are expected to have a background of bioengineering, biomedicine. Skills on microfabrication will be helpful. A challenging spirit would help a lot for tackling this interdisciplinary and cutting-edge research area.


Goals: In 6 months, the prospective postdoctoral researcher will have to master all the established protocols, both for the fabrication of scaffolds and for cell culture. This will help to finalize within the first year the whole process of fabrication of a vascularized tissue in 2D, before moving on to the 3D phase. The latter should last one year, taking into account the adaptation steps necessary for the transition from 2D to 3D, particularly with regard to the characterization of thick tissues.
