Детальний опис англійською:
OIST Graduate School offers education and research opportunities through a system of undergraduate and graduate placements as Research Interns. These short-term placements as a Research Intern give talented students the opportunity to gain experience in a particular laboratory or to learn a specific technique. They work under the direction of a Professor at OIST and contribute to the research activities of OIST.
Places for Research Interns are awarded four times a year on a competitive basis, with application typically six months in advance. Those eligible to apply include students enrolled at graduate or undergraduate programs in universities, colleges, junior colleges, and vocational schools in Japan or overseas, or recent graduates of such institutions. Currently enrolled students must have approval from their home institution.
The tenure of Research Intern placements is always between 2 and 6 months, typically 10 to 12 weeks. Tenure will not normally be extended.
Research Intern Allowances
OIST expects that Research Interns are independently funded but provides a small living allowance, commuting support (where necessary), and accommodation either on campus or nearby. Successful applicants will receive a Living Allowance of 2,400 JPY per day whilst at OIST. Allowances are taxable income under Japanese law, a requirement that unfortunately cannot be waived.
OIST will pay for one direct roundtrip travel for Research Interns between the home university or institution and the research unit or other facility where the internship will take place (usually Okinawa). The travel dates must be as close as possible to the term of the placement.
The Student Support Section of the Graduate School will provide support for Research Interns at OIST with matters such as housing, visa acquisition, insurance procedures, and local registration. OIST regrets that support for dependents, family members, and persons other than the student is not available.
Research Intern places are awarded four times a year on a competitive basis. Selection is competitive, and depends on suitability of the intended research, a student’s academic background, and available funding and space. Professors accepting students under these programs will review the student’s qualifications, research capabilities, and academic training in a comprehensive manner. Research units that can provide research intern positions in any year, and some information on the type of projects available, are described HERE. Not all units are available due to availability of research space or supervision at different times.
The applicant is notified of the receipt of an application, and then of the outcome of their application once a decision has been made. Ample time must be allowed for the issue of a visa and other necessary Japanese government documentation.
