Visiting Fellows

Yukawa Institute for Theoretical Physics (YITP), Research Institute for Mathematical Sciences (RIMS), and Institute of Economic Research (KIER) invite guest lecturer-level fellows each fiscal year: one for 12 months (a long-term position) and four for 3 months (a short-term position). The invitation will be publicly announced but referrals will be accepted.

Lodging during the stay

YIPT owns a lodging facility (Kitashirakawa Gakusha), co-managed by RIMS, in the vicinity of its North Campus, which is used by domestic and overseas researchers throughout the year. This facility efficiently ensures stable supply of rooms for invited fellows’ short- and long-term stay.
