OIST Researcher Community

Welcome to the OIST Researcher Community Website, an online meeting place for researchers with OIST as their primary affiliation. This forum is created and maintained by the elected officers of the ORC, and aspires to promote communication among the researchers, in order to build a vibrant and productive research community.

ORC Mission Statement

The OIST Researcher Community (ORC) is an organization of all Postdoctoral Scholars, Staff Scientists, Group Leaders, and Research Specialists at OIST.

OIST is a dynamic, international, and collaborative institution. Most importantly, OIST is constantly growing and adapting.

By bringing issues of concern to the administration and faculty, the ORC works to make sure that the well-being of researchers at OIST is always a top priority. The ORC also aims to enrich the intellectual and social lives of OIST researchers by sponsoring and organizing events.

Everyone is encouraged to contribute to the development and shaping of the community.
