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

Thursday, October 31, 2019 - 10:59


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 center seeks to promote comprehensive, international, and interdisciplinary research on Japanese culture, and to foster cooperation among researchers in Japanese worldwide.  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. The center receives foreign scholars as Visiting Research Fellows in the following categories:

1. JSPS Fellowship Programs

2. JF Research Fellow, Visiting Research Fellow ( fellow of other supporting organizations, or research supported by a foreign government).
