The Australian National University (ANU) in association with leading Japanese research institutes is offering an exciting opportunity for late-year undergraduate and postgraduate students from Australia’s Group of Eight (Go8) universities with a strong interest in Japan and Australia-Japan relations.
The Australia-Japan Research Centre (AJRC) Fellowship Program will select up to two fellows for a policy-focused research stay in Tokyo, Japan.
The AJRC Fellowship aims to identify and foster the development of a new generation of leaders, promoting investment in Australia-Japan relations through the networks that fellowship holders create.
For a period of two to six months, from March to December 2018, fellows will spend time in Japan undertaking a research project on a policy-relevant topic in economics, politics or international relations. This may include an internship at a policy-relevant organisation. Fellows will also be affiliated with a faculty mentor at one of the ANU’s partner universities in Tokyo pertinent to their primary research interest, and will attend relevant events offered through leading Japanese research institutes in Tokyo.
More information on the program, eligibility and how to apply is available in this flyer.
Applications close COB Friday 15 December. Application forms are available via this link.
The AJRC Fellowship Program is supported by the Japan Foundation, Sydney.
