Message from the Director


I am happy to inform the evaluation on our progress by the WPI Program Committee on February 13. It says the Committee was impressed by the high level of science going on at AIMR in its challenge to create a new approach to materials science by introduction of mathematics and evaluated that AIMR has achieved “World Premier Status” as fully meets the goal of the WPI program. On behalf of AIMR, I on this occasion would like to express my sincere gratitude to the Program Committee, PD and PO in particular, for their constant encouragement and warm advice.

AIMR will continue its activity as a major research institute in the Organization for Advanced Study(OAS), Tohoku University. AIMR is expected to lead Research and Internationalization of Tohoku university as we do now. Hereby I promise to continue our effort to be a world leader in our research area and contribute to society.

We will soon open recruitment for a few tenure positions. Thank you.
