ISSP belongs to the University of Tokyo. At the same time,
its facilities are open to all domestic researchers participating in joint
research. The administrative decisions are made at the faculty meeting
chaired by the director and attended by professors and associate professors.
The ISSP Advisory Committee, consisting of nearly equal numbers of members
from and outside of the University of Tokyo to represent the interest of
the outside users, gives advice on various aspects of administration upon
inquiry of the director. The Advisory Committee for Joint Research, consisting
of both the in-house and outside members, evaluates proposals for joint
research, workshops, and allocation of fund for user activities.
Currently ISSP consists of five Research Divisions, four Research
Facilities, Visiting Staff Division and Foreign Visiting Staff Division.
Among these, Synchrotron Radiation Laboratory has a branch in the High
Energy Accelerator Research Organization (KEK), Tsukuba, Ibaraki and the
Neutron Science Laboratory maintains apparatus installed at the research
reactor in the Japan Atomic Energy Agency, Tokai, Ibaraki.
In addition, supporting facilities, which include Cryogenic Laboratory,
Model Shop, Radiation Safety Laboratory, Library and International Liaison
Office provide services to both in-house and outside users.
