Hiroshima University, Yamaguchi University, and the University of Tokushima have jointly established a consortium called “Home for Innovative Researchers and Academic Knowledge Users (HIRAKU).” The consortium focuses on human resource development and the allocation of young researchers and graduate students in cooperation with firms, universities, and institutes in the Chugoku and Shikoku regions. Supported by Funds for the Development of Human Resources in Science and Technology through Japan’s Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology, the consortium aims to improve regional potential in science, technology, and innovation. As a main part of its activities, the consortium will manage some of the job openings at each university to promote capable young researchers in the regions and encourage them to become distinguished researchers. For these purposes, the ideal candidate for the position will be able to conduct active independent research in the specified research fields, collaborate with diverse actors, and develop research careers in an uncertain world.
