JSPS Postdoctoral Fellowship for Overseas Researchers aims to provide opportunities for young and excellent postdoctoral researchers from other countries to conduct, under the guidance of their Japanese hosts, cooperative research with leading research groups in universities and other Japanese institutions. The program allows such researchers to advance their own research while contributing to the progress of research in Japan and the counterpart countries. Applications for this program are submitted by host researchers in Japan who wish to host overseas postdoctoral fellows.
