Researcher from another country

Do you want to become a guest researcher, have an internship, co-apply or connect research projects to CCHS?

We are currently reworking our structure and guidelines for internships and researcher visits. When these are ready we will provide information here on our webpage. In the meantime, we have the following information:

To collaborate with CCHS both interns and visiting researchers will have to first link up with a department at UGOT. This is a basic requirement, and we are obliged to follow this structure.

If you already have contacts we suggest you start with contacting them to explore possibilities of an internship.  If these contacts result in an internship or visiting researcher stay, we are more than happy to meet up with you and include you in CCHS activities. Contact us and we will tell you more and investigate the possibilities for cooperation.
