I-HoP:Building Academic Career in Japan for International Students(10/16)

I-HoP:Building Academic Career in Japan for International Students(10/16)

For doctoral students, a research career that does not require relatively high Japanese language skills is one of the major career path options after completing a doctoral program.
On the other hand, job hunting in universities and public research institutions is often very different from that in private sector.
Therefore, we will provide guidance on academic careers with a focus on doctoral students, including how non-Japanese speaking doctoral students can obtain positions in Japanese academia.
We look forward to your participation, regardless of your academic year or field of study.

■ Lecturer
Mr. Tomonori FUKASAWA
President/Emerging Technologies Corporation
Doctoral Consultant / Hokkaido University

The lecturer has been providing career support specifically to PhDs and PhD candidates for over 15 years. He has launched and developed several job-hunting services specialized in PhDs. Although he and his company mainly focus on the matching between PhDs and companies, since they have a broad network of companies and stakeholders in academia, they support the career development in academia as well.

He has made efforts to develop original career support services such as “Ph.D. AGENT” and “Ph.D.-engine wakate” all together with 8000+ users. He is also engaged in a project by universities as well as MEXT (Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology) on career advice including internship, job search and one-to-one career consulting for PhDs and PhD students. He has been actively pursuing the cultivation of human resources for high-skilled people with a holistic insight among industry-academic-government.
