Research Exchanges

WPI-SKCM2 sponsors the exchange of students and postdocs between HU and WPI-SKCM2 nodes, including the institutions of our domestic and international PIs and co-PIs, as well as affiliate members.  Notably, the WPI-SKCM2 InternKNOTship Program is an academic internship designed to allow young researchers from all over the world to visit Hiroshima University to work in collaboration with WPI-SKCM2 members in the field of knotted chiral meta matter.  Additionally, postdocs are mentored by a team of three WPI-SKCM2 PIs and co-PIs from different disciplines, and ideally, different institutions and/or countries. Postdocs benefit from broad disciplinary and international perspectives as well as the opportunity to travel and work at WPI-SKCM2 node institutions.


The SKCM2 InternKNOTship Program is an academic internship that provides opportunities for young researchers from all over the world to stay in Japan and perform experiments and develop theories in collaboration with WPI-SKCM2 PIs. Participants can request financial support for travel to and accommodation at Hiroshima University for 3 weeks to 3 months, with a maximum of 6 months total.
