The Waseda Institute for Advanced Study in Japan (WIAS) is presently recruiting senior level researchers for Visiting Researcher Program and young researchers for Visiting Scholar Program.

These programs are designed to support researchers who wish to spend a certain period of residence at WIAS pursuing their own research during holidays or other leave from their home institutions.

Visiting Researchers are expected to advance their own work and also stimulate their colleagues' relationships among WIAS and Japanese academic circles by giving a series of lecture, while Visiting Scholars are expected to engage in joint research with researchers who belong to Waseda University.

The application deadline is September 7th.
