Three departments have been selected for the FY2012 Tenure Track Expansion and Entrenchment Program (Selection of Organizations) (second semester applications), and Associate Professor Shin Kamijo of the Graduate School of Science and Engineering has been selected for support in the Selection of Individuals. On November 9 (Fri), MEXT announced that Yamaguchi University has been selected in the Selection of Organizations for the second semester applications to the FY2012 Tenure Track Expansion and Entrenchment Program for the Development of Human Resources in Science and Technology, and that Associate Professor Shin Kamijo of the Graduate School of Science and Engineering has been selected for support in the Selection of Individuals.  At Yamaguchi University, the tenure track system has been introduced in the Graduate School of Science and Engineering, the Graduate School of Medicine and the Joint Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, and the system will also be introduced in the Faculty of Agriculture in FY2015.  The Selection of Individuals is a support system in which young researchers are selected from among tenure track staff selected in the Selection of Organizations, and additional research funding is provided.  In addition to aiming for further expansion and entrenchment of the system, Yamaguchi University will continue to enhance support for tenure track staff and maintain the environment for them. The URA Office also helps tenure track staff to obtain outside funding. 【Reference】 URA Office: http://ds22.cc.yamaguchi-u.ac.jp/~ken-san/URA/index.html 【MEXT Announcement】 http://www.mext.go.jp/b_menu/boshu/detail/1327724.htm The Program for the Development of Human Resources in Science and Technology provides funding to universities which implement the tenure track system (a system which enables young researchers, who have been selected in a highly fair and transparent way, to gain experience as an independent researcher as a temporary staff member before they take up a permanent post), with the objective of promoting the maintenance of research environments in which young researchers can carry out research independently.
