Announcement follows

The Research Fellow will undertake research work on a selected priority topic of the Centre, which should result in a consistent policy report (50 pages), to be owned by the Centre.

Apart from research on a pre-determined topic, the Research Fellow will be expected to support the daily analytical activities of the Centre, including media monitoring, policy briefings, seminar reports, etc.

WHO CAN APPLY?

This fellowship is addressed to EU and Japanese professionals (trade and economic analysts, academics, scientists, civil servants) with a proven interest in Japan and EU-Japan cooperation from multiple perspectives (trade/market access, industrial policy issues, R&D, etc...).

Minimum requirements: EU or Japanese citizenship, university degree, strong interest and motivation in Japan and EU-Japan relations.

The following elements will constitute an advantage in the selection process: previous professional experience with Japan, an already advanced study/research on one of the priority topics, Japanese language abilities.

THE SELECTION PROCESS:

After a first review of the applications, a short-list will be established. Only shortlisted candidates will be contacted for an interview (via telephone, Skype or in person).

Shortlisted candidates will be required to submit official documents proving that they meet the minimum requirements (citizenship, education etc).

PRACTICAL ASPECTS

The fellowship is worth 1700 EUR/month (paid in JPY) and covers a period of 6 months:

The fellowship is expected to cover basic daily expenses and accommodation in Tokyo. A Research Fellow selected from outside Japan, will receive an additional travel subsidy of up to 1000 EUR.
