Visiting Researchers

UNILAK hosts Visiting Researchers from around the world. The programme provides Visitors access to UNILAK facilities (including UNILAK’s University Library) so that they can conduct research on an approved topic. As an academic institution committed to international cooperation and exchange, UNILAK welcomes Visiting Researchers, on the following terms:

UNILAK welcomes applications by PhD and postdoctoral fellows, as well as those holding the rank of assistant professor, associate professor, or full professor (or equivalents of these ranks).

Visits can start at any point in the academic year and can last up to twelve months. Extensions may be granted under special circumstances (e.g. grant scheme particulars).

UNILAK will provide visitors with (digital) library access and access to an office and computer.

UNILAK will not support Visiting Researchers financially in any way, however, UNILAK will provide accommodation and meals to our Visiting Researchers.

Visiting Researchers must acknowledge UNILAK’s support in any publications prepared during their visit in whole or in part.
