Geological Survey of Japan (GSJ)

Geological information is essential for a country like Japan, located at a tectonically active area, to ensure a safe and secure society. The Geological Survey of Japan gathers, compiles, and provides geological information and promotes its wider use. We also develop technologies to overcome various difficulties related to global environment protection, exploration of minerals and energy resources, and natural disaster mitigation, and coordinate international cooperation as a national representative.

Type A (Tenure-track position)/Type B (Tenured position)

The below-listed job opportunities are for both Type A (normally for 5 years) and Type B - which type of position applies will be determined following the selection process. The term for tenure track position may be shortened, e.g. 3 years or 4 years, commensurate with the candidate's previous achievements and professional experience. Research staff on tenure track are entitle to undergo a tenure rewiew one and a half years before the term ends.
