Qu'est-ce que le programme NIGINTERN ?

Institut national de génétique (NIG)/Département de génétique, SOKENDAI propose un programme de stages de recherche pour les étudiants de premier et de troisième cycle qui souhaitent acquérir une expérience de recherche en génétique et dans des domaines connexes des sciences de la vie. Les étudiants stagiaires mèneront des recherches indépendantes sous le mentorat d'un chercheur hôte du NIG.

Notre programme comprend une formation sur la recherche scientifique, la communication scientifique et des visites de laboratoires pour discuter avec les chercheurs principaux. À la fin du programme, les participants feront une présentation sur leur expérience dans le cadre du "Symposium des rapports NIGINTERN". NIG délivrera un certificat à ceux qui auront suivi le programme avec succès. Les stagiaires peuvent également participer à diverses activités telles que des conférences dans le cadre du programme d'études supérieures, des clubs de lecture et des séminaires organisés par des chercheurs exceptionnels de l'intérieur et de l'extérieur de l'Institut. Des cours de japonais sont également proposés.
