The National Institute for Materials Science and the Graduate School of Information Science and Technology at Osaka University have agreed to jointly establish a new collaborative PhD program entitled “Materials Informatics Laboratory” in the Department of Information Systems Engineering, Graduate School of Information Science and Technology at Osaka University as of October 1, 2021, in order to foster the development of outstanding young researchers in the field of materials science.

Abstract

  1. The National Institute for Materials Science (NIMS; President: Kazuhito Hashimoto) and the Graduate School of Information Science and Technology at Osaka University (Dean: Professor Masayuki Murata) have agreed to jointly establish a new collaborative PhD program entitled “Materials Informatics Laboratory” in the Department of Information Systems Engineering, Graduate School of Information Science and Technology at Osaka University as of October 1, 2021, in order to foster the development of outstanding young researchers in the field of materials science.
  2. Information science and materials science are academic fields of great importance that support today’s social infrastructure. As Society 5.0 aims to solve global issues by integrating cyberspace and physical space, a strong need exists to integrate information science for cyberspace with materials science for physical space. The Materials Informatics Laboratory will conduct research and provide education integrating information science and materials science in order to promote data-driven materials research. Materials with new functions will be designed and developed using information processing technology. We aim to foster the development of excellent researchers with advanced knowledge who can embody the fusion of cyberspace and physical space technology into solutions for global issues.
  3. Under the program, NIMS researchers will be appointed Guest Professors or Guest Associate Professors at Osaka University where they will provide education and research guidance to graduate students utilizing NIMS’ excellent materials science research knowledge.
  4. We are planning to accept graduate students into the program starting in April 2022. Students in this laboratory will be employed as NIMS Junior Researchers through the NIMS Joint Graduate School Program.
