Special Grant Program for International Students / Research Assistant Program of Graduate School of Environmental Science (April 2019)

This program will select students, who can likely contribute internationally in their research field, from those students applying to doctoral courses of Graduate School of Environmental Science.


It is very meaningful to participate in research as a Research Assistant (RA) for the development of your research ability. Each Research Assistant must serve to achieve the objective of a research subject directed by a faculty member of the Graduate School of Environmental Science. The research subjects are listed below.

 

Period

Maximum 3 years since the first year although the achievement of the objective must be evaluated each year by the committee of the faculty.

 

Qualifications of application (Eligibility):

Students (mainly from developing countries) who are going to seek admission to the doctor courses of Graduate School of Environmental Science.

 

Payment Exemption / RA Allowance:

Payment Exemption: Total amount of school fees are entirely covered by Hokkaido University (i.e., entrance exam fee of 30,000 yen, admission fee of 282,000 yen, and annual tuition fee of 535,800 yen for each of three years). RA Allowance (depending on the actual working time): Total: 3 million yen (1 million yen for each of three years)
Travel expenses of entrance exam should be paid by applicant.

 

Application Period

Until December 12 Wednesday, 2018

 

Application for the program:

Applicants are required to submit the documents listed below. The documents should not be written in a language other than English.

  1. Curriculum vitae with the applicant's photograph
  2. Academic transcript
  3. Graduation certificate
  4. List of publications and presentations in scientific meetings
  5. Research proposal
  6. Direction and comments of potential supervisor and at least one co-supervisor, including proofs of communication between you and the potential supervisors
  7. Master's thesis or other documents in proof of your research ability

List of possible research subjects (2019)

Title: Study on coastal ecosystem-based disaster risk reduction (Eco-DRR)
Associate Professor: Masahiko Fujii
 

Ecosystem-based disaster risk reduction (Eco-DRR) is a concept to alleviate disasters to human societies by maintaining ecosystems and the ecosystem services. This study aims to issue scientific guidelines for applying the Eco-DRR to local societies in coastal regions, especially enhancing functions of coastal ecosystems, such as coral reefs, seaweeds and mangroves. Successful candidates are highly expected to have basic skills in numerical modeling and/or operating satellite data.
 
Title: Study on water exchanges and material circulations through river-lagoon-ocean systems
Professor: Humio Mitsudera
 

Rivers provide ocean with many materials such as nutrients, sediment, pollutants and freshwater which influence ocean circulations, environment and aquaculture. Human also have significant impacts on the land-ocean linkage systems. This study aims to model and analyze water exchanges, mixing processes and material circulations through river-lagoon-ocean systems such as those in Hokkaido. Successful candidates are highly expected to have basic knowledge on physical oceanography, and basic skills in numerical modeling and data analyses.
