Research Assistant

The RA program was introduced in 1996 by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT) to enable outstanding doctoral program students to participate as RAs in research projects.
NAIST was the first universities nationwide to introduce an RA program, in 1995, using independent funding sources. Since 1996, support from the MEXT program has allowed us to strengthen our RA program.
