How to join our laboratory?
Important Notices:
1. If you have an interest in our laboratory, you should contact us at least one month before the deadline of Chiba University. Please send us the pre-application documents, which generally include a CV, English and /or Japanese certificates, your best publication (if you have published).
2. The entrance exam for the master course is normally in the summer. If the students don't stay in Japan, it is hard to take the exam, mostly because of the VISA issue. Therefore, we recommend that they will be with the laboratory as a research student for half (from April) and one year (from October). Basically, the foreign students join the master course from October every year.
