Career Path

After the completion of this 5-year program, postdoctoral students are expected to work as researchers in Japan or abroad. In the event that they decide to work abroad, some will return to their native countries and others will go to different countries to pursue their interests. In the latter case, supervisors provide them with advice on how to select a suitable laboratory and help with the necessary arrangements and negotiations. Some scientists who have completed our program still collaborate with our institute and return to Japan as visiting professors. In order to maintain relationships and pursue research collaboration, we try to follow-up with the graduates of this course and invite them to international symposiums held by Sokendai.
