Recommendation Program for Young Researchers and Woman Researchers


The Information Technology Center, The University of Tokyo (hereafter, “the Center”) offers a public recruitment program for young researchers (40 years old or below as of April 1, 2022, including students) , woman researchers or students to conduct research utilizing large computational resources such as supercomputers and data platforms.
The center is calling for research proposals for FY 2022. Upon screening by the Center’s faculty members, several dozen outstanding research proposals will be selected during the year. Selected research projects can use the Center’s computational resources at no charge.
The Center offers general and intern programs. The general program accepts applications for the first half and the second half of the year. The intern program assumes mainly summer-term use targeting students in undergraduate and graduate programs. In both programs, only personal research applications are accepted.
The general program selects outstanding projects, which fulfill the criteria as Exploratory Joint Research Projects under Joint Usage/Research Center for Interdisciplinary Large-scale Information Infrastructures (JHPCN), the Center plans to recommend them to JHPCN as Exploratory Joint Research Projects. If selected as a JHPCN Exploratory Joint Research Project by the JHPCN’s Screening Committee for Joint Research Projects, a presentation opportunity may be provided at the JHPCN annual symposium in July. After completion, we have high expectations that the projects will develop into full-fledged joint research projects (general, international, and industrial theses), which expand on the original exploratory research based on the obtained research achievements. Please note that the selected projects in the intern program will not be recommended as a JHPCN Exploratory Joint Research Project.
