Would you like to be a visiting researcher at the Faculty of Theology?
The Faculty of Theology welcomes visiting researchers from other academic institutions. We will provide an office space, access to IT-facilities, full access to the University of Oslo library, and the chance to be an active and integrated part of the Faculty while here.
The Faculty of Theology
What is expected of a visiting researcher?
Visiting researchers are expected to primarily engage in their own research, but also to seek scholarly and cultural interaction with the Faculty of Theology and the larger University’s faculty and students. More specifically, guest researchers are invited to contribute to our social and academic environment through joint lunches, regular internal and external seminars, and through communication of their own research. Visiting researchers have no teaching or other responsibilities, but the Faculty welcomes ad hoc teaching assignments if that is mutually beneficiary. As non-employees, visiting researchers are not entitled to salary or housing.
How to apply
A visiting researcher can stay for 1 month or up to a year.
The visiting researcher should be involved in an academic cooperation with a researcher at the Faculty of Theology, and this researcher will serve as an academic and social contact point, and must be the one to apply for status as visiting researcher on your behalf. The visiting researcher must provide a description of the planned research/activities for the application. The application must be submitted a month ahead of the research stay at the very latest.
All applications must be approved by the Dean of Research and the Faculty Director.
