Institute for Protein Research (IPR), Osaka University, invites applications for international collaborative research. The research should be conducted in the form of a collaboration with at least one of the Principal Investigators (PIs) at IPR, or it should use equipments/ experimental facilities of IPR, including solution- and solid-state-NMR spectrometers with ultra-high magnetic fields, and a synchrotron beam line for biological macromolecular assemblies at SPring-8. In the fiscal year of 2018, the research period is from April 1st, 2018 to March 31st, 2019, and an extension of the period is possible after reviewing the application. IPR will provide supports to each project as a form of travel expenses for visiting IPR, and the researcher can stay in the University guest house near the campus.

Each applicant should submit “Application Form” for the collaborative research along with a recommendation from at least one PI at IPR (listed in the next page). The dead-line for submission for the 2018 fiscal year is December 1st, 2017. After review, about 10 selected applications will be announced at the end of March, 2018. Even after the dead-line, proposals with urgent need can be submitted at any time during the 2018 fiscal year and may be approved after review, although the travel support may not be granted for such “late” proposals.
