Introduction to Osaka University

Research Support System

The Research Support System employs individuals who have completed graduate school and students as "research assistants" to assist researchers who are having difficulty in securing sufficient time for research due to pregnancy or due to family responsibilities such as child-rearing or caring for a bed-ridden family member. After participating in this, experienced research assistants may find that they are able to call upon such experience when working on their own careers or research.

Applications for use of this service for the 2016-2017 academic year are no longer being accepted.
