Summer Internship aInstitute of Contemporary Asian Studies (ICAS) at Temple University Japan Campus (TUJ)

Dear friends,

Please let us introduce our internship program in response to the inquiry
“Internships in Japan?” from Jeffrey Angles, Associate Professor, Western
Michigan University.

Since 2007, Institute of Contemporary Asian Studies (ICAS) at Temple
University Japan Campus (TUJ), has hosted summer interns from many
universities across the world. These unpaid summer internships for non-TUJ
students (undergraduate and graduate) offer a unique opportunity to spend a
productive summer in Tokyo. You can find out more about the program at

The interns to work as research associates with faculty members, help
organize conferences, or work on special projects with TUJ administrators.
Interns have worked on organizing major academic symposia, assisted faculty
in their research (in the fields of history, anthropology, sociology,
international relations, communications and literature) and co-written
articles. For students who have their own research project (such as writing
a senior thesis), programs may be devised that suit their interests while
contributing to the research activities of TUJ faculty.

Interns participate in seminars and discussion groups at TUJ, visits to
museums, businesses, embassies, and interesting sights in Tokyo and

TUJ encourages interns to take advantage of their time in Tokyo by
attending conferences and other cultural events. Interns will be provided
with networking opportunities in the professional communities of Japanese
academia and government, and can participate in tours and other activities
both within Tokyo and across Japan, which TUJ sponsors for its own students
during its session.

We just started recruiting the interns for summer 2014. We would appreciate
if you could forward the information to the appropriate person/department
at your school and spread a word out.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at
