Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology Graduate University invites students for Research Internship. Students in an undergraduate program or who recently graduated interested in joining the OIST PhD program may undertake educational activity at OIST as a Research Intern. A research internship at Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology (OIST) basically provides students with experience working in a research environment under the direction of OIST faculty.

Research Intern places are awarded twice a year on a competitive basis. Selection is highly competitive, and depends on suitability of the intended research, academic background, available funding and space. Not all available positions will necessarily be filled. Basically, candidates are considered for admission without regard to gender, gender identity, gender expression, age, sexual orientation, mental or physical disability, medical condition, race, ethnicity, ancestry, culture, national origin, religion, or marital status. Applications from women and minorities are strongly encouraged.


Generally, those eligible to apply for the OIST Research Internship Program include excellent students who are in the final 2 years of the undergraduate or Masters programs in universities, colleges, junior colleges, and vocational schools in Japan or overseas, or graduates of such institutions. Currently, enrolled students must have approval from their home institution. Furthermore, the academic background of applicants should be appropriate to their desired host unit(s) at OIST
