Carrel Space

The Centre for Japanese Research has carrel space available for visiting scholars, graduate students, and research associates. Due to the high demand, applicants may be expected to share their desk with another occupant. Carrel desks are assigned up to a maximum of one-year after which renewal may be given on the basis of optimum use of the space. “Optimum” means a minimum of 15 hours per week three days per week. The deadline to apply is Friday, Oct. 5 2018, and all applicants require a CJR (Centre for Japanese Research) sponsor.
