Jointly organized by the United Nations University and the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS), the JSPS–UNU Postdoctoral Fellowship Programme is designed to provide promising, highly qualified, young researchers with the opportunity to conduct advanced research relevant to the main research focus of the UNU Institute for the Advanced Study of Sustainability (UNU-IAS, Tokyo) in cooperation with host researchers at Japanese universities and research institutions. This fellowship is aimed at candidates who have completed their doctorates in the past six years and also have professional and/or research experience. In 2018, the following research projects at UNU-IAS are accepting applications for JSPS–UNU Postdoctoral Fellows:

• Global Change and Resilience

• Education for Sustainable Development in Africa

• Water for Sustainable Development

Fellowships are awarded for a period of 24 months and begin in September 2018. Applicants must hold a doctoral degree (received on or after 2 April 2012) when the fellowship begins, or be scheduled to receive a doctoral degree before the fellowship begins. Japanese nationals are not eligible.
