About Collaborative Research Project

Project Outline

The staff of the collaborative research project comprises at least two members of the Institute plus guest members. Members of the Institute are full-time faculty members of the Faculty of Letters and guest members are researchers from outside Gakushuin University nominated by collaborative research project staff representatives and appointed by the Director. In addition, staff representatives can nominate a research assistant from the students enrolled in doctoral courses at the Gakushuin University Graduate School of Humanities. The Institute has also been actively recruiting outstanding researchers not only from Japan but also from Europe, the United States, and China. Projects are generally launched through recruitment by full-time faculty members of the Faculty of Letters, followed by the examination of the Director, the deliberation of the Steering Committee, and approval by the meeting of the council members.
