Three Visiting Research Scholar Fellowships for 2013-2014, International Research Center for Japanese Studies
The International Research Center for Japanese Studies (Kyoto, Japan) is pleased to announce openings for foreign scholars to reside at the Center and participate during the Japanese academic year 2014-2015.
Visiting Research Scholars are expected to engage in collaborative activity with the Center's permanent faculty by, for example, participating in at least one of our team research projects ("kyôdô kenkyû"). The Visiting Research Scholar will be free to carry out his/her individual research, but must join in at least one team research project. During your stay at Nichibunken or within six months of your return, you are required to submit one article to either one of the two Nichibunken journals, Nihon Kenkyū (in Japanese) or Japan Review (in English). Also, we ask that you submit a report about trends in Japanese Studies in your country.
We are now accepting applications from The Visiting Research Scholar candidates for the fiscal year 2014 (April 1, 2014〜March 31, 2015), expected to start their stay on a date within this period. The stay must be for a minimum of three (3) months but not exceed the maximum of twelve (12) months. (It is possible for a period of stay to extend into the following fiscal year.) Along with a first preference for a period of stay, please indicate a second preferred period.
The deadline for applications is on November 30, 2012 (Japan time).
