AScI Visiting Researcher programme relaunched

21.04.2017

The programme provides support for short international visits to research groups at the School of Science.

The Aalto Science Institute is an interdisciplinary research initiative hosted by the Aalto University School of Science to advance and foster international collaboration and research at the highest level across the fields of science.

The AScI Visiting Researcher programme was on hold since 2015 but has now been relaunched as of April 2017. The programme supports collaborative international research visits of minimum one to maximum four weeks with the research groups of the School of Science. The visiting researcher’s allowance can be used towards the visitor’s travel costs and accommodation expenses. Academic career levels from postdoctoral fellows and above are supported.

The application for a visiting researcher’s allowance is submitted by the visitor’s host at the School of Science, and needs to be signed by the host, a supporting professor of the School of Science (in case the host is not a professor), and the Head of Department of the hosting department. The call is continuous, and funding decisions are made once a month (except in June & July). Please have a look at AScI website for details, including the very simple application procedure.

Aalto Science Institute supports the principles of equal opportunity and affirmative action. Qualified candidates from all backgrounds are encouraged to apply.
