For various reasons, the labor market in Japan is of great interest for foreign scientists. Therefore many of the JSPS Club members are working in Japan at different organizations, including universities and research institutions and also at corporations throughout the country.
During the first meeting in Oktober 2011 of our members who are working in Japan, the idea evolved that our members in Japan could also be hosts to German-speaking students, young researchers and colleagues. It is well known that many kind of problems can arise when getting used to a foreign culture, bespite all orientation guides of local scholarship programs and funding institutions. In this regard, the JSPS Club members who are well acquainted with Japan want to give a helping hand.
Fellows who are looking for this kind of assistance in Japan may contact the JSPS Bonn Office to find a JSPS Club member who is matching in profession and is working in the same region in Japan.
