The IMES encourages academic research as its primary duty, while some policy-related research may be required for in-house purposes. The IMES offers salary and benefits competitive with that of an academic position. Although many research papers are written in English, the main working language at the IMES is Japanese; therefore, it is recommended that candidates have excellent Japanese speaking, reading, and writing skills.
