For graduate students
Graduate Grant Program
The Graduate School of Humanities and Human Sciences provides travel expense support and proofreading fee support for young researchers through the Graduate Grant Program.
- Travel expense support: This support is provided to cover the travel expenses of graduate students (master’s and doctoral programs) who make research presentations at international and national conferences and conduct research (mainly airfare support; accommodation costs not included).
- Proofreading fee support: To actively support presentations at international conferences and research meetings, as well as paper submissions to international academic journals and the Faculty, Graduate School and School of Humanities and Human Sciences’ English journal, fees for proofreading manuscripts to be presented and submitted (correction of English text) are provided for graduate students belonging to the graduate school.
Books for graduate students
Graduate students may have books ordered within a fixed budget each year. The students may preferentially use any books registered for them during the dissertation writing period.
Advanced-COLA (Advanced Course of Liberal Arts Administration)
Career Development Support Seminar for Graduate Students in Humanities and Social Sciences.
Teaching Assistant (TA) System
To give educational assistance for undergraduate and university-wide subjects, excellent graduate students (master’s and doctoral programs) are hired as TAs.
Teaching Fellow (TF) System
Excellent doctoral students are hired as TFs. By sharing teaching duties with the teachers, they will accumulate educational skills and experience.
Research Assistant (RA) System
Excellent doctoral students are hired as RAs. The aim is to effectively advance research activities and enhance the research support system, as well as to develop the research ability of young researchers. The provision of allowances to young researchers also allows students to concentrate on their research.
For postdoctoral fellows
The aim is to support the continuation of research by those who have completed the doctoral program at the Graduate School of Humanities and Human Sciences (those who have obtained a doctoral degree from the graduate school) and to activate research activities at the Faculty of Humanities and Human Sciences. Postdoctoral researchers may use the facilities, books, and equipment necessary to carry out their research, as long as doing so does not interfere with the education and research of the graduate school and the faculty.
Publishing grant: Yubunsosho book series
The Faculty of Humanities and Human Sciences helps postdoctoral researchers to publish their research results through the Yubunsosho book series.
Japanese thesis correction
Postdoctoral researchers who have passed the certifying examination will correct the dissertations by non-Japanese native students at the Graduate School of Humanities and Human Sciences.
The position of an associate researcher is intended for those who have obtained a doctoral degree (doctoral degree after completing a course of study or doctoral degree by thesis only) from the Graduate School of Humanities and Human Sciences and are continuing their research while engaging in work other than a research job. The position may be held for up to a year, and associate researchers are required to apply for Grants-in-Aid for Scientific Research during the period.
For all young researchers
- Seminar on How to Write an Application (application for the Research Fellowship for Young Scientists)
- Young Researcher Support Seminar (academic book publishing, career path, overseas research)
Provision of support information for young researchers
As part of research support, support information for young researchers is provided by email. The information includes details on seminars, grants, and faculty recruitment.
Academic Skill Basket
The registration system for improving young researchers’ academic skills (commonly known as the Academic Skill Basket) is a system with which young researchers with various skills are registered and utilize the skills at the request of the faculty members and committees.
