2018-02-21 09:21:49

This is Dr. Masa Kinoshita, Head of International Promotion Office at the Earthquake Research Institute, the University of Tokyo (ERI/UTokyo).
 
As you would be aware, our internship program (Sakura Science of JST) was approved as a three-year program (2016-2018). As such, we would like to start the call for application to the internship program for 2018.
 
We will select 10 students by the selection committee members of ERI. Since the applicants need to attach a recommendation letter (#8 below) and to specify a desired host researcher at ERI (#1), we believe that the selection will be made rather reasonably, without much difficulty. So I would ask you to encourage 1 student (or 2 maximum) to apply for our Sakura Science Program. 
 
The cost for transportation (flights and local), accommodation, daily allowances will be supported by the program. As you can see the program summary in the attached file, the program is scheduled from July 1 (Sun) to
21 (Sat), 2018, including lectures/training, collaboration with the supervisors and a field trip (destination TBD, see attached draft program plan). 
An undergraduate (or master course) student who is interested in entering the graduate school of the University of Tokyo is particularly welcome. We strongly recommend that an applicant should contact a potential supervisor at ERI before sending the application documents.
 
Please send the following information to us by March 23 (Fri.), 2018. We will let you know the results by the end of April 2018.
 
Please visit our website to get information about the application. For your convenience all the information is included in the following: 
 
Applicants are requested to submit Application Form to intl-office@eri.u-tokyo.ac.jp 
 
Application Deadline: March 23, 2018, 24:00 (Japan Standard Time)
