Working at JAMSTEC


JAMSTEC is always looking for talented young scientists, skilled technicians, and experienced researchers to fill positions for the extremely broad range of research that is conducted at its many centers and among its groups.

JAMSTEC offers a diverse array of employment categories that can be broadly divided into tenured and fixed-term positions. Tenured employees, known at JAMSTEC as “permanent staff”, are guaranteed employment at JAMSTEC up to retirement age. Fixed-term employees, as the name implies, are hired for a fixed term specified in their contract, which may include an option for renewal contingent upon the results of a performance review.
