Hokkaido University Tenure Track Program

Hokkaido University has adopted the four basic education and research principals of: Frontier Spirit, Global Perspectives, All-round Education, and Practical Learning. Based on these principals, we have established the “Future Strategy for the 150th Anniversary of Hokkaido University” toward our 150th anniversary in 2026.

The basis of the plan as outlined in the strategy states: “We will support and nurture those who will lead the next generation of researchers” and “Expand the tenure-track system according to academic field for the early development of young researchers.”
