Visiting Scholars Program (Haifa University, Israel)

The Faculty of Social Welfare and Health Sciences invites international scholars to apply to our Visiting Scholars program. The program is open to researchers from institutions around the world (holding the rank of Assistant, Associate or Full Professor (or their equivalent)) wishing to undertake research within the departments or schools of the Faculty of Social Welfare and Health Sciences and to take part in the academic life of the University of Haifa. We welcome requests from individual scholars who wish to spend periods of a minimum of one month and up to one
year pursuing research, but without registering for a formal academic qualification.

A visiting scholar whose application is successful will be granted affiliation to one of the Faculty’s departments during their time visiting the University of Haifa. The scheme is designed for those scholars who wish to focus on a specific research area, and have or are establishing a collaboration with one or several faculty members and/or research centers at the Faculty of Social Welfare and Health Sciences.

The program fosters participation in research, generation new research ideas for applications to competitive funding agencies, and/or writing scientific papers. Additionally, scholars are expected to present at seminar/s for faculty embers and doctoral students.

While the scholars themselves are solely responsible for travel, accommodations, and living expenses, the Faculty will provide for the necessary working environment (e.g. an office with a computer, printer, and internet and library access) along with a financial support of up to $3,500 (USD) (to cover travel cost; accommodation, and honorarium) which will be granted to each of 2 successful applications per year.

Applications for the 2022-2023 academic year, to be completed by the host at the Faculty of Social Welfare and Health Sciences, are due by April 15th, 2022.
