This week have the last installment of job resources we’ve found across the web, either from general searches or Japanese Studies university webpages. This section focuses on academic positions. If you’re looking for new ideas about what kind of jobs are out there and where to search, some of these places may be good ones to start. There is some information about the sites at a glance, as well as brief comments from users who sent the links our way. For questions about the specifics of each organization, please contact the site administrators directly.
