Japan seems to be the place to go this year. Hot on the heels of the Daiwa Scholarships (closing date – Thursday 6th December, and new lunchtime talk date – 16th Nov), two more fellowship schemes, aimed at postgraduates, are currently recruiting, offering funding opportunites for PhD and post-doc research in Japan in a range of predominantly science and engineering subjects.
- Toshiba Fellowship Programme – for post-docs or PhDs due to complete by March 2009. Deadline is Friday 7th December.
- Japan Society for the Promotion of Science – awards for pre- and post-doctoral researchers for 1 to 12 months. Deadline is Thursday 29th November.
