JSPS San Francisco held a fellowship information and networking session at University of British Colombia (November 8). With the generous help of Sarah Henderson (Human Resources and Postdoctoral Affairs Assistant, Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies, University of British Colombia), participants came to learn about the JSPS’s fully-funded fellowships for research in Japan and to connect with fellow researchers.
The sessions drew a variety of researchers at different career stages from different fields, including late-term doctoral students, postdocs and faculty members.
JSPS also thanks the member from the Japanese Universities Network of the Bay Area (JUNBA), Kazuhiko Hasegawa (Regional Director, Osaka University North American Center for Academic initiatives) for introduction of Osaka university and participation in the short networking event following the session. Their participation added depth to the discussion as they were able to share viewpoints about the state of research in Japan and make connections that could lead to international and interdisciplinary research collaborations.
JSPS San Francisco will continue to hold regular networking info sessions at universities around the Bay Area. All interested researchers are welcome to attend.
