Kyoto University Hakubi Project to Foster and Support Young Researchers:

Research activities at universities are driven by researcher's unlimited inspiration, intellectual curiosity and enthusiasm in quest of truth. Promoting research activities therefore entails the development of human resources with extraordinary creativity, originality and challenging spirit, in a wide variety of academic fields.

Fostering such human resources is also essential for Kyoto University. In response to the progress of globalization, it is particularly important to foster human resources with superb creativity, as well as broad perspectives and flexible mindset, all of which are important to be able to pioneer new academic frontiers. With this view in mind, Kyoto University will launch the Hakubi Project to Foster and Support Young Researchers, in addition to augmenting efforts in various existing initiatives taken by individual faculties/schools. In the Hakubi Project to Foster and Support Young Researchers, the university will appoint promising young researchers as program-specific faculty members (associate professor/assistant with an annual salary) and support their research activities on themes of their own choice.
