Program Officers

This program has a strong sense of awareness in regards to pioneering advanced fields in each academic area. For accepted tenure track professors a program is provided for program fusion through collaborative research, for collaborative research adjustment, for research presentations at workshops, for the improvement of international symposium hosting and other research abilities, for the study of the Graduate School lecture method, for the improvement of student guidance competency and other educational abilities, and for the improvement of SQ ability development coaching and other management abilities. Program Officers will be appointed to unify the program as a whole. Program Officers will manage this broad-perspective research program and monitor the appropriateness of the activities of tenure track professors. At the same time, by participating in the acceptance investigation and achievement evaluations, improvements in guidance and administration abilities will be sought. Through the appointments of Program Officers that will perform the smooth administration of the program, the Tenure Track System will be constructed as a flexible research system centered on the human resources system.

Mentor Instructors and the Senior Mentor

In order for tenure track instructors to smoothly conduct research, educational and management activities, a mentor professor will be assigned to each individual tenure track professor. A Senior Mentor will be assigned to ensure the appropriateness and standardization of the guidance contents of each Mentor Instructor, and to ensure that mentor work is capable of being conducted efficiently. Through this, a research ability development support system Mentor Instructors working together with the Senior Mentor will be constructed, and efforts made to improve practical research abilities.

SQ Training Coaches

This program will to the greatest extent possible make use of human resources training methods gained from the latest knowledge in societal neuroscience. SQ and EQ will be utilized as the fundamental skills used by young researchers in the research room, and these abilities will be developed. The acquisition of interpersonal relationship skills for advanced leadership will be stressed and SQ Training Coaches will be assigned. Training programs using SQ ability development tools will be implemented, as will man-to-man counseling.

Tenure Track Promotion Area

This program has selected the Graduate School of Science and Engineering to serve as the pilot model "Tenure Track Promotion Area". Through the implementation of Young Researchers Training Program based on the Tenure Track System it is hoped that the system will be developed campus-wide.
The Graduate School of Science and Engineering Organic Devices Major is the core of the Organic Electronics Research Base. This major is involved in "Organic Device Engineering", an extremely practical academic field in which materials science, electronic engineering and mechanical engineering weave creative linkages. It is also an area with a strong relationship with industry, in which fusion with manufacturing technology management science is important. This area contributes greatly to the future manufacture of new electronics such as organic ELs, organic transistors, and organic solar batteries. The practical side of this academic field also possesses a high societal importance.
This is an extremely new academic field that amalgamates a wide variety of foundational academic subjects such as organic materials chemistry, quantum chemistry, electrical chemistry, semiconductor engineering, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, applied optics, matter physics, and membrane engineering. In concrete terms, a wide range of topics will be covered ranging from fundamental academic areas to practical application areas. These will include organic electric materials design and synthesis, the clarification of the electric and engineering behavior of semiconductor materials, electric conditions of the surface and control structure, solid element processes, device and circuit design, and device development.
By using this area as the core of the model and adding it to the advanced areas currently being pioneered, high expectations are held regarding the development of a young researcher education method that will give hints for breakthroughs in multiple organically fused academic areas and the pioneering of new fused academic areas including high-efficiency solar electricity generating materials/elements, robotics, precision parts processing, human-centered production, image information processing, cellular engineering, developmental engineering, genetic engineering, and other fields.
