About Tokyo Academics:

Tokyo Academics is the passion project of a constellation of teachers, researchers, and academics from around the world. Since 2012, we’ve evolved from a few university friends to a growing number of part-time and full-time individuals located in Tokyo, as well as working remotely. We are an organization of experts deeply passionate about helping students meet their potential and capture the opportunities of the future.

We are looking for exceptional individuals to join our team of research mentors. Mentors act as the catalyst for original academic research: they provide the technical expertise and project management acumen necessary for success. We support high school students from Japan and the United States through long-term, substantial projects with the goal of publishing and/or presenting their work in respected academic outlets.

We have a high demand for projects related to computer science, economics, and biology. However, qualified mentors from all disciplines are encouraged to apply.

 

What you will work on:

  • Teaching high school students 1-on-1 using either Skype or Zoom
  • Supporting students through their original, relevant, and feasible research project
  • Helping students develop the essential skills within your discipline
  • Following a dynamic and interdisciplinary research curriculum

 

Basic requirements:

  • Masters degree or higher
  • 1 year of relevant teaching experience
  • Strong communication and collaboration skills
  • Exceptional depth and breadth of knowledge within your field

 

Preferred qualifications:

  • PhD degree or equivalent
  • Academic publications in peer-reviewed journals
  • Research mentorship experience
  • 3+ years of relevant teaching experience

 

Benefits:

  • Competitive compensation package 
  • Join a growing bootstrapped company with a lot of potential for growth
  • Autonomy to implement ideas and have a significant impact

 

Work hours:

  • Minimum of 5hrs/week, flexible schedule
  • Working remotely, but must be available for meetings during business hours (10am-7pm Japan Standard Time)
