JSPS Postdoctoral Fellowship for Foreign Researchers
This program was established to assist promising and highly qualified young foreign researchers wishing to conduct research in Japan. It is aimed at providing opportunities for such researchers to, under the guidance of their hosts, conduct cooperative research with leading research groups in universities and other Japanese institutions, thereby permitting them to advance their own research while stimulating Japanese academic circles, particularly young Japanese researchers, through close collaboration in scientific activities. Such collaboration is also intended to advance scientific research in the counterpart countries. (Fellowships are awarded for a period of 12 to 24 months.).
Applications for this program must be submitted to JSPS by a host researcher in Japan through the head of his/her university or institution.
Applicants (host researchers) will be required to use JSPS’s web application system to apply for fellowships. Click here
