FY2022 RIHN:Invited Scholar Program, Visiting Research Fellow Program

《Opportunities for Overseas Researchers to Spend Time at RIHN》


RIHN has established two programs to enable overseas researchers to spend several months at the Institute, engaging in research and interacting with other RIHN researchers. The basic idea is that such visits benefit both the researcher and the Institute. The programs are open to researchers based outside of Japan (including those with Japanese nationality) and researchers based in Japan with a nationality other than Japanese. Candidates for both schemes are selected competitively.


・The RIHN Invited Scholar Program enables overseas researchers to spend between one and three months at RIHN and to contribute to the development of the Institute’s intellectual foundations and strategic directions. Invited Scholars should be widely recognized in their fields and able to provide a strategic overview of the relevance of their disciplinary or interdisciplinary studies to RIHN's engagement in global environmental studies. Invited Scholars are selected based on nomination by RIHN faculty members who act as their host. Invited Scholars are employed by RIHN during their stay and receive a stipend.


・The RIHN Visiting Research Fellow Program brings overseas researchers to the Institute for periods of two to six months to engage in specific research in the context of one of the RIHN Programs, Projects or RIHN Center Divisions. Visiting Fellows are not employed by RIHN, but their travel, accommodation and daily expenses are covered by an allowance. Visiting Fellows are selected based on applications from the candidates themselves. RIHN faculty members act as hosts during the stay and candidates are required to identify and consult with potential hosts before applying.
