The Graduate School of Advanced Photonics and Electronic Device Science will hire one Research Assistant (RA) worth 200,000 yen per month for the fiscal year 2022 for those who have applied for a JSPS Research Fellowship (DC1) but have not been selected. If you wish to be hired as an RA worth 200,000 yen per month, please complete the following procedures.

【RA employment period】
April 2022 – March 2023
Applicants must be currently enrolled in a doctoral course or planning to enter a doctoral course in April 2022 and have applied for a JSPS Postdoctoral Fellowship (DC1), but were not selected for FY2022.
In addition, those who will be employed as an Encouraged Researcher (hereinafter referred to as “Encouraged Researcher”) under the “Kyoto University Graduate School Education Support Organization Program”, a project to support challenging research programs for next-generation researchers, in April 2022 are also eligible to apply.
