Division of Tenure-tracked Young Researcher Development at the Graduate School of Science and Engineering for Research

This program is managed by the Division of Tenure-track Young Researcher Development at the Graduate School, which includes the Tenure-track Program Management Committee and the Tenure-track Program Selection/Evaluation Committee. The Management Committee consists of the Dean, Associate Dean and the researchers in the fields related to the tenure-track program, and conducts general management of the program. The Selection/Evaluation Committee also consists of the Dean, Associate Dean, and the researchers in the fields related to the tenure-track program, as well as researchers outside the Graduate School, and selects and evaluates tenure-track researchers. The tenure-track researchers are selected from among international applicants through fair, transparent screenings, and are provided with opportunities for independent research and guidance by their main and sub mentors.

TRAINING PROCESS

The Management Committee manages the program according to the plan-do-check-act cycle; it gives appropriate advice based on regular evaluations of the research of tenure-track researchers. The committee also provides them with opportunities for intellectual exchange, such as attending workshops for young researchers and international academic conferences. We set a standard according to which 70% of the work of tenure-track researchers should involve research activities. However, considering the future teaching career they will have after completing the training program, we suggest that they should be engaged in the education of undergraduate and graduate students, and give lectures at the Graduate School. We conduct a mid-term evaluation in the third year, and a tenure evaluation in the last year of the program.
