last modified Dec 05, 2016 05:13 PM
Applications for the Toshiba Fellowship Programme 2017 are now open and will close on Friday 16 December 2016.

The Toshiba Fellowship Programme offers outstanding scientists an annual opportunity to apply to join Toshiba’s research and development laboratories in Japan for up to two years, on a Research Fellowship Contract.

The programme is an opportunity for recently qualified PhD level scientists, mainly from science, computing and mathematics disciplines, to journey alongside Toshiba into innovation, discovering a new world of research and development, as well as exploring and living a new cultural experience in Japan.

The programme has successfully operated for over 25 years, enjoying a strong and long-running collaboration with the EPSRC (Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council) as well as fostering and developing the relationship between Japanese industry and UK academia. The successful Fellow receives a generous package, including a fixed salary and relocation assistance to and from Japan, together with support and advice prior to and during their stay.

Candidates must:

  • Be a PhD-level researcher
  • Have no more than 10 year’s post-Doctoral experience
  • Be of EU nationality
  • Be based in a UK academic or Government institution at the time of application (studying or working)
  • Have completed their PhD by the time they begin working for Toshiba in Japan.
