Your Support for Young Researchers in ICRR will be Appreciated
The research that was awarded as Novel Prize in Physics 2015 was
achieved by the enthusiastic works of many young researchers. In
fact, the worldʼs largest neutrino detector Super-Kamiokande was
constructed by a collaborative work of more than 100 researchers,
many of them young researchers.

Fortunately, I got a tenure position in the University of Tokyo in
the early stage of my carrier and devoted myself to my research without worrying
about my future. However, young researchers nowadays have a very hard time in
finding their permanent academic jobs. The fraction of fixed-term researchers in
the Japanese Universities increased substantially in recent years. I hope that young
people who eager to contribute to the humanity should be able to pursue their
goals. To help achieve their goals, ICRR established Fund for Young Researchers
to employ and support promising young researchers.

ICRR has the mission to study cosmic rays, neutrinos, gamma rays and
gravitational waves, and to solve the mystery of both the largest Universe and the
smallest particles. Your kind contributions help us support young researchers in
