An International Program Associate (IPA) is a non-Japanese doctoral candidate attending a Japanese or overseas graduate school participating in RIKEN’s joint graduate school program. IPAs conduct research at RIKEN under the supervision of RIKEN scientists as part of work toward obtaining a PhD. RIKEN’s joint graduate school program is based on agreements with a number of Japanese and overseas universities and aims to identify and foster talented young scientists capable of contributing to the advancement of science for the global community.
There will be a research introduction session for prospective students interested in doing research at CBS RIKEN in Japan.
Date: 8:30am, May 14th, 2022 (SGT) on Zoom (Register here). There will be breakout rooms where students can interact directly with CBS RIKEN PIs.
