Hello, this is Maekazu, a first-year doctoral student in the Kajita-Saito-Sugama Laboratory.
Recently, due to the influence of the new coronavirus, many students are conducting meetings with their academic advisors and laboratory students, as well as most of their research activities online, and you may feel some inconvenience. For such students, we recommend that you commute to an off-campus research institution affiliated with the University of Tokyo. This time, I would like to introduce one such research institute, the National Institute for Fusion Science, National Institutes of Natural Sciences.
The National Institute for Fusion Science is one of the inter-university research institute corporations, which was established to share research equipment among multiple universities. It has a large helical device LHD, etc. The research institute is located in Gifu Prefecture, where students and researchers from the University of Tokyo and Nagoya University gather. (There are cases like me who attend the Institute for Fusion Science while still belonging to the graduate school of the University of Tokyo, so it is not necessary to belong to the Graduate University for Advanced Studies, and only students of the Graduate University for Advanced Studies are employed. It should be noted that some laboratories do not have such facilities, and some laboratories only employ students from partner universities such as the University of Tokyo.)
The advantage of attending the National Institute for Fusion Science is that in addition to the facilities such as the large helical device LHD and the plasma simulator, the welfare system is also substantial, such as health counseling and an associate researcher system for doctoral students. There is a very low-magnification benefit scholarship called , which is conditional on attending the National Institute for Fusion Science.
When choosing a laboratory, we hope that you will refer to the fact that there are such facilities.
