U.S.-Japan Program Postdoctoral Fellowships

For Harvard and non-Harvard postdoctoral scholars.

A few postdoctoral fellowships are offered each year by the Program on U.S.-Japan Relations for the study of issues in US-Japan relations, Japan's relations with other countries, and domestic issues that bear on Japan’s international behavior.

Awards and Benefits

The stipend is $60,000, and the Postdoctoral Fellows are offered shared office space at the Center and access to Harvard facilities.

Who Is Eligible

Awardees must complete all requirements of their doctoral degree to receive a fellowship. If a successful applicant has not already earned a PhD at the time of his or her application, the applicant's advisers must submit a formal letter to the effect that he or she "has completed all the requirements of the PhD" by August 1.


Postdoctoral Fellows reside at the Center and, in addition to their own work, participate in the activities of the Program on U.S.-Japan Relations and teach one course in a Harvard Faculty of Arts and Sciences department.
