Funder: Leverhulme Trust
Title: Visiting Professorships
Deadline: 16 May 2013
Value: Not specified
The Leverhulme Trust invites applications for its visiting professorships. These enable distinguished academics based overseas to spend between three and 12 months at a UK university, primarily to enhance the skills of academic staff or students at the host institution. Visiting professors may also wish to use the opportunity to further their own academic interests.
Applications must be made by a member of academic staff, based in a UK university or other higher education institution, who will be responsible for coordinating the visit.
A maintenance grant up to a level commensurate with the salary of a professor in the relevant field at the receiving institution may be requested. Economy travel costs to and from the UK will also be met. Requests for associated costs, if justified by the programme, may include, for example, travel within the UK, consumables and essential technical assistance.
