The Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) International Top Young
Fellowship (ITYF) was established as a prestigious new fellowship
program in 2009. The ITYF is designed to attract outstanding, highly
motivated, early-career researchers in any of the space science fields
covered by the Institute of Space and Astronautical Sciences (ISAS) to
work in Japan for 3 (extendable to 5) years. An excellent remuneration
package is offered, including research budget (including travel
expense) so that the fellow can extend their international profile, as
well as developing collaborations within Japan.
The most recent call for JAXA International Top Young Fellowship
applications, for FY2013, has been issued.
The application deadline is 31 August 2013. Please see the below the
