We have two ways to accept graduate students from abroad as internship students.The first is NII International Internship Program. Master's and/or Ph.D. students, who are enrolled in the partner institutions that have signed MOU agreement with NII, can be applied to the program through partner institutions. Applications directly sent to me are not accepted. The second is JSPS Summer Program, and the applications should be sent to JSPS. Basically I accept students only by two ways above, but occasionally I accept students from other ways. I can suggest the following research topics.

  1. Bioimage Informatics : Bioimage analysis and machine learning for mouse phenotyping and zebrafish neural activity analysis - Bioimage Informatics
  2. Crisis Informatics : Big data analytics (esp. image processing, natural language processing, and machine learning) for natural disasters and crisis - Crisis Informatics
  3. Earth Environmental Informatics : Big data analytics (esp. image processing and machine learning) for solving environmental problems - Earth Environmental Informatics
  4. Digital Humanities : Geographic information systems (GIS), Semantic Web, face recognition, and 3D CG modeling for cultural heritage and museums - Digital Silk Road

"Type" in the table above has a meaning as follows.

For your information, four of past internship students are currently living in Japan, three of them for working, and one of them as a graduate student. They are people who like Japan after coming to Japan (or have previous experiences with Japan), so this internship program also has value as experiencing different culture.
