Hiroshima University Writing Center was established in April 2013 to improve the academic skills of members of Hiroshima University. In November 2013, we launched one-on-one Japanese writing tutorials, while in 2014 we began offering support for the international promotion of research output and consultation on publishing in English, with the aim of enhancing the university’s research ability.
The Writing Center at Hiroshima University, Japan, has just created the Writing Advisor Fellowship program which is ideal for someone who wishes to gain professional experiences working with non-native English writers and speakers, focusing on academic writing at the tertiary level and above. The Fellow will work full-time at Hiroshima University, located in two campuses, for a contract period of six months starting from September 2017. Please refer to Application Guideline for more information.
