Scholar Opportunities (PhD)

General eligibility criteria

A scholar is an academic and/or professional of outstanding experience who carries out teaching or research assignments and scholarly work in the institutions participating in the NordSecMob programme.

The renumeration of the scholarship is decided by the consortium on case-by-case basis taking into account possible other funding sources (hosting university's own support etc.) and the length of the vising period. The lenght of the visiting period can vary from a few days to a couple of months and is to be negotiated by the scholar and the hosting institution.

The eligible scholar candidates should be employed by an internationally recognized (UNESCO etc.) university and their visit should bring genuine added value for the programme.

The scholar visit should take place during the academic years 2016-2017 and end by 31 July 2017.
