Create the research and educational environment that will be recognized as truly global
SENTAN-Q is being implemented to identify and nurture outstanding female and young faculty members, who will lead the academic research as the world top-class and competitive researchers.
Trainees are selected through highly transparent screening process from candidates, who are recommended by each department and are expected to attain promotions to high-ranking or management positions within a few years. In principle, the trainees will take 2 years training course. Throughout the course, the trainees will be guided by the world’s top class researchers and assessed on their research and educational skills. Successful trainees who reach the targeted learning level will receive certificates and tenure or a one-level promotion will be given within one year of the completion of the program.
Trainees can acquire research and educational skills that meet the international highest standards and the wide knowledge required of senior and management researchers. Furthermore, formation of on-campus network that goes beyond the boundaries of gender crossing different research fields can be expected as well as the elimination of unconscious bias. Therefore the goal of SENTAN-Q is not simply to increase the number of female and young faculty, rather to make them to be competitive and attractive researchers.
Through the implementation of SENTAN-Q, we aim to create the research and educational environment that will be recognized as truly global by producing outstanding female and young researchers.
