National Metrology Institute of Japan (NMIJ)

As the national metrology institute (NMI), we are focusing on the development and dissemination of measurement standards, promotion of measurement standards utilization, development of measurement technologies related to measurement standards, legal metrology work and training of experts. Our activity covers engineering, physical, material, and chemical measurement standards. It also covers development of measurement and analytical instrumentation. We also coordinate international activities on metrology standards as a national representative.

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

  • AIST seeks research scientists with outstanding abilities and/or potential for conducting innovative R&D activities in wide range of fields of science and technology. Research scientists will be employed for tenure-track (Type A), or tenured positions (Type B).
  • Recruitment and Employment Committeee of AIST will determine which positions are suitable for an successful applicant.
  • Tenure of an employed research scientist for Type A is 5 years, however, tenure can be reduced to 3 yeras based on decision by the committee.
  • A tenure-track research scientist can be promoted to a research scientist for a tenured position by qualifying "tenure review". The tenure review will be carried out about 18 months before tenure expires. The scope of the tenure review is to quantify contributions to AIST missions, and performance in term. In the last 5 years, more than 90% of tenure-track research scientists have been qualified.

Following is the list of job opportunities which are now open for recruitment. Deadline is October 15, 2018.
