Jun Saito is CEO and President of J Prep, a Tokyo-based English Language School for students seeking college education domestically and abroad. J Prep, previously known as Logos, was founded in 2012 and is a pioneer for transforming English education in Japan by building on both strong linguistic and intellectual foundations.
Until March 2012, Dr.Saito was an Assistant Professor in the Department of Political Science at Yale University. Before joining the Yale faculty in 2008, he taught at Wesleyan University and Franklin and Marshall College. He also received his Ph. D. in Political Science at Yale.
His academic research focuses on the institutional determinants of representation and redistribution.
