The purpose of the visiting research fellow program is to enhance JMG’s international profile and research collaborations. The program offers international researchers an opportunity to spend time at the department working on their research, giving seminars and deepening partnerships within the framework of JMG’s research agenda.
The program is primarily designed for short stays (around 2–3 weeks), but can also be combined with longer stays, for example in relation to joint research projects.
The research fellow is expected to have a specialism that links to one of JMG’s research areas. The researcher at JMG who hosts the visiting research fellow guarantees that their stay is rooted in an ongoing or planned collaboration and takes responsibility for the researcher’s program during their stay. The program shall include seminars or other activities aimed at the wider research environment that enable exchanges with doctoral students.
The visiting research fellow will be offered a workspace at the Department with access to the library and other services. The Department will also pay for travel, accommodation and a welcome lunch and dinner.
The visiting research fellow will be sent an invitation after being proposed by the researcher who will be their host. Nominations are to be submitted to the Department’s management team, who will make a decision based on the recommendations of the advisory board. The professors on the advisory board meet four times a year (February, May, September and November). Nominations are to include a brief justifying text, the nominee’s CV and the timing of the planned stay. The person must therefore be consulted beforehand. Within the framework of this program, JMG intends to invite one research fellow per semester.
