As a priority program of the Arctic Challenge for Sustainability II (ArCS II) project, this call for applications invites a wide range of early career researchers from the Arctic and non-Arctic countries who are engaged in Arctic research, and supports their research by employing or accepting them at universities and research institutions in Japan.

At the same time, this project aims to revitalize mutual exchange between Arctic researchers in Japan and early career researchers overseas and to strengthen the cooperative system for international joint research.

The application documents must arrive by noon, Monday, May 8, 2023 (Japan standard time).

The International Early Career Researchers will belong to a university or a research institution in Japan and be engaged in Arctic research under the guidance of the Host Researcher. This program is designed to help International Early Career Researchers develop their careers as researchers specializing in Arctic studies and expects them, in the future, to act as a liaison with their Host Institution by having them participate in working-level meetings and research meetings.
