Call for Nourishment Explorer

We are currently looking for an explorer of nourishment culture in the vast land surrounding Memu, Hokkaido. Not limited to the cuisine culture, we would like the new partner to search and question what is in front of us with a fresh set of senses. How do we become part of the environment through the act of eating?

This is part of our research retreat program, where we assume the person to stay in Memu in and out of season to explore its field, nature, and community for over a period of 2~3 rounds of seasons. While independently working with Memu Earth Lab, an academic body, there will be plenty of occasions to work with Memu Earth Hotel members.

Call for Grounding Explorer / Curator

We are currently looking for an explorer of grounding culture in the vast land surrounding Memu, Hokkaido.

As part of our rereading resource activity at Memu Earth Lab, we will be engaging in fieldwork through mediums that tie us to the ground of Memu. We will be questioning how we are grounded to the place, what makes us part of the ground, and how to know our presence through physical interfaces?

Expected participants are not limited to those who engage in geology, forestry, apparel, shoe building, deer hunting. We are seeking those who can listen to the ground.

“Grounding” is a part of our research retreat program in the sequel to “Sounding” and “Nourishing,” where we assume the person to stay in Memu in and out of season to explore its field, nature, and community throughout 2~3 rounds of seasons.

Call for Researching Administrator

We are currently looking for a research(ing) administrator interested in developing grounded ways of finding possibilities in researching activity today.

Not limited to the existing academic undertaking, one is highly encouraged to propose natural ways of pursuing research for today and next-generation researchers.

Some of the questions we would like to ask together are:
Who should engage in research activities?
What are the ways for researchers to engage with mass-diverse places of the world?
Can we find a different financial infrastructure than that of the current industry-based education model?

Alongside the self-organized and proposed work toward our common question, the expected role is to creatively manage the lab’s administration, finance, and startup incubation.

Our operational mode is flexible, full time or part-time, remote (in Japan), or on-site (Memu, Hokkaido).
