The annual Misasa International Student Intern Program for advanced undergraduate (3rd to 4th year) and master’s students, first initiated in 2005, is designed to promote international collaborative research and education. During the intern program, each student will work on an active IPM research project under the supervision of IPM faculty members and their research groups. Successful applicants will participate in one of the intern projects. The goal of the program is for participants to become acquainted with research activities and the state-of-the-art research facilities at the IPM, and to gain first-hand scientific research experience. At the conclusion of the program, an intern symposium will be held for each participant to give an oral presentation of his/her intern research in English.
From this fiscal year (2019), this Intern program becomes a part of Joint Use/Research program.
