The core objective of the fellowships of the Centre for French-Japanese Advanced Studies in Paris (CEAFJP, coordinated by the Fondation France-Japon de l’EHESS) is to lead to a close collaboration between the fellow, the CEAFJP, and its institutional partners, in order to work on the research project proposed by the fellow. The CEAFJP fellowships enable the fellows to pursue their research work, with objectives specific to their stay in Paris, benefiting from the large network of researchers in social and human sciences, as well as the international and interdisciplinary environment of the Parisian academic institutions. To that aim, the fellows will benefit from excellent work conditions at the Fondation France-Japon de l’EHESS (they will be granted an office and access to meeting rooms, full access to the EHESS libraries, administrative assistance).

CEAFJP open calls for applications for three thematic fellowships of 6 to 10 months for the year 2019:

CEAFJP/Banque de France Fellowship "Macroeconomics and Economic Policy: Which Lessons from the Japanese Experience?"

CEAFJP/Michelin Fellowship "Public Innovation Policies in Japan"

CEAFJP/Valeo Fellowship "Innovative Technologies for a Sustainable Mobility"


What is funded

The fellowship may last from 6 to 10 months, between 1 January 2019 and 31 March 2020, depending on the fellow’s availability.

The fellow will receive a grant, designed to cover his or her expenses related to transport and his or her stay in Paris on the one hand, and on the other hand the expenses directly linked to the realization of his or her research work. This grant can be combined with other sources of funding, on condition that the fellow is located in Paris.


6-10 months


The call for applications is open to distinguished international scholars, as well as government and business professionals. Applicants must be able to prove their capacity to conduct a research, but they are not required to hold a Ph.D.


The responsibility for the funding offers published on this website, including the funding description, lies entirely with the publishing institutions. The application is handled uniquely by the employer, who is also fully responsible for the recruitment and selection processes.
