The Hakubi Center for Advanced Research

The Hakubi Center for Advanced Research was founded in 2009 to implement and manage the Hakubi Project, an initiative to support promising young researchers from around the world through the provision of faculty positions at Kyoto University. Researchers recruited through the program are given the opportunity and facilities to pursue their own academic interests. The center’s main role is the coordination of recruitment procedures in collaboration with the university’s faculties, graduate schools and research institutes.
