Finding a potential supervisor

How to find a potential supervisor?

You should look for one or two professors who are doing research that you are interested in conducting, fill it in in your application form and prepare proposals for them. Since websites of some laboratories are not up-to-date, the best way to find out laboratories' current research activities is to look at their thesis titles during the past five years.   Please go to the Divisions and laboratory page. You may also check Achievements page, which has abstracts of theses of graduates of our program to get an idea what kind of research was done by international students in particular laboratory.

  • Due to their business and big numbers of inquiries most of professors will not directly reply to your e-mail. After you have chosen a laboratory of your interest you can submit soft-copies on e3 online system without a confirmation from the supervisor.
