INTERNATIONAL RESEARCH CENTER FOR JAPANESE STUDIES: Postdoctoral Fellowships for Foreign Researchers


The International Research Center for Japanese Studies (Nichibunken) makes use of several programs offered by Japanese and international organizations, such as the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science or the Japan Foundation, that support research by providing foreign scholars with opportunities to conduct research at academic institutions in Japan.  The fellowship's purpose is to provide opportunities for young postdoctoral researchers from other countries to conduct, under the guidance of their hosts, cooperative research with leading research groups in universities and other Japanese institutions. The program allows such researchers to advance their own research while contributing to the progress of research in Japan and the counterpart countries.  Applications for this program are submitted by a host researcher in Japan who wishes to host a foreign postdoctoral fellow.

Deadline:  Varies according the program. Please check the website for details.
