Japanese-German Graduate Externship for Research on Deep Earth Volatile Cycle
“The Japanese-German Graduate Externship” is a program established by JSPS (Japan Society for the Promotion of Science) to promote exchange among universities in Japan and Germany by supporting the reciprocal student enrollment in graduate courses in the two countries and collaborative instruction. Japanese and German universities work together to carry out joint research and education activities at the graduate level. Doctoral students and young researchers including academic teaching professionals and post-doctoral fellows are exchanged between the counterpart graduate schools where they engage in research and education activities. The program aims to promote more systematic academic exchange between universities and graduate schools in Japan and Germany, while helping both to foster young researchers in doctoral programs and to advance international joint research.

This program is a joint education and research program organized by Tohoku University and the University of Bayreuth, which has been selected as one of the above programs. With “Circulation of Volatile Elements” as a common topic, this program interconnects many Earth science disciplines effectively and extend it to planetary science seamlessly. In this way, we aim to provide graduate school education and research program that allow students and researchers to “Look into the Earth from a Comprehensive Perspective”.
