Japan Foundation/BAJS Japanese Studies Postgraduate Workshop 2019: Career Progression   org

We are delighted to announce that the 2019 Japan Foundation and British Association for Japanese Studies (BAJS) Postgraduate Workshop will be held at Cardiff University. 

This workshop aims to assist the development of the next generation of Japanese Studies researchers and academics currently studying in the UK. Every year it provides a great opportunity for students to receive practical advice on their own research from senior colleagues, and to get to know fellow postgraduate students and members of the Japanese Studies Community. 

This year's interactive workshop will centre on career development in academia/research in the UK, Japan and abroad. It will include several sessions by senior academics addressing concerns and challenges faced by at the early stages of an academic career and how to take full advantage of the opportunities available. There will be a chance for students to present their research and receive feedback from both peers and senior colleagues. There will also be an opportunity to hear from organisations and the funding they can offer for current and future research. 

Eligibility: Registration is open to postgraduate students in Japanese Studies as well as those undertaking Japan related research in other disciplines in the social sciences and humanities. Priority will be given to Ph.D candidates.
