Students who are enrolled in a bachelor’s or master’s program or who have just graduated and are interested in enrolling in the OIST PhD program may participate in educational activities at OIST as research interns. Students can gain experience conducting research under the supervision of OIST academics by participating in a research internship at the institute.
Positions for research interns are given out twice a year on a competitive basis. The desired research’s suitability, academic background, available funding, and space are all taken into consideration throughout the very competitive selection process. Not every open position will inevitably be filled.
OIST works to establish and uphold a diverse, inclusive workplace that doesn’t discriminate on the basis of gender, gender identity, gender expression, age, sexual orientation, physical or mental illness, marital status, race, ethnicity, ancestry, culture, national origin, or religion. We strongly welcome applications from women and other underrepresented groups.

Excellent students who are enrolled in their final two years of their undergraduate or master’s degree programs at universities, colleges, junior colleges, or vocational schools in Japan or abroad—or who have already graduated from such institutions—are eligible to apply for the OIST Research Internship Program. Students who are currently enrolled require permission from their home university. The applicants’ academic backgrounds should be appropriate for the OIST host unit(s) they choose.
When accepted into the OIST Research Internship program, research interns who are affiliated with a Japanese university or institution are needed to prepare and provide their own insurance. The combination of Gakkensai and Gakkenbai, as well as other insurances with comparable coverage, are acceptable insurances.
