Senior Visiting Fellowships

The Senior Visiting Fellowships Programme offers to established researchers, scholars, and practitioners from around the world the opportunity to spend a period of time conducting research in the University of Milano Bicocca Department of Human Sciences for Education –normally between four and six weeks, though longer visits may be arranged.

During the stay, Visiting Fellows will pursue their own research project, but they are expected to play an active part in the intellectual life of the Department by attending talks and discussions, and by making themselves available to PhD students in their field of expertise.

The Fellowships will cover costs for travel and lodging up to 5.000 euros. Visiting Fellows will be provided with office space, and will have access to the facilities of the Department, including library, computing and printing facilities.

Applications will be evaluated by a Committee within the Department of Human Sciences for Education. Forthcoming deadlines for applications:
31 August 2016.
31 January 2017.

Applications should be sent to:

Prof. Giorgio Bertolotti
Dipartimento di Scienze umane per l’educazione
