Internships: Summer internships at the Institute of Contemporary Asian Studies, Temple University Japan

Since 2007, ICAS at Temple University Japan has hosted summer interns from many universities across the world. These unpaid summer internships for non-TUJ students (undergraduate and graduate) offer a unique opportunity to spend a productive summer in Tokyo.

Below is the summary of the program. You will find the details of the program at

The interns to work as research associates with faculty members, help organize conferences, or work on special projects with TUJ administrators. Interns have worked on organizing major academic symposia, assisted faculty in their research (in the fields of history, anthropology, sociology, international relations, communications and literature) and co-written articles.

For students who have their own research project (such as writing a senior thesis), programs may be devised that suit their interests while contributing to the research activities of TUJ faculty.

Interns participate in seminars and discussion groups at TUJ, visits to museums, businesses, embassies, and interesting sights in and around Tokyo.

TUJ encourages interns to take advantage of their time in Tokyo by attending conferences and other cultural events. Interns will be provided with networking opportunities in the professional communities of Japanese academia and government, and can participate in tours and other activities both within Tokyo and across Japan, which TUJ sponsors for its own students during its session.

Deadline: April 1, 2015
