SLU announces funding for two guest researchers per year, to promote the strategically important field of economics and business administration.
Within the guest researcher programme, decided by the vice-chancellor in May 2018, researchers at SLU can host colleagues from other universities in Sweden or abroad with funding provided by SLU.
The programme is directed at researchers/teachers in economics and business administration, which is one of four designated subject areas the university will focus on during the strategy period.
A call for proposal will be issued each year during the period of 2018-2020.
Time scope: The programme enables guest researchers/teachers to spend short periods at SLU (one to two months per year) over a period of three years.
Economic scope: Guest researchers/teachers will receive funding to cover their salary, travel expenses and accommodation, as well as for visits to SLU's regional centres and for a fellow member of their team to visit SLU ("tag-along"; see the guidelines for further details).
Who can nominate: researchers/teachers at SLU after approval of the head of department. Joint applications can also be made by researchers at two or more departments.
Last date for application: 27 September 2019 for a position starting during the academic year of 2019/2020.
