Visiting Scholars

The Institute of Archaeology enjoys the academic and intellectual input of visiting scholars in the various departments.  Visiting scholars are sponsored by granting agencies and/or external academic institutions. There are different levels of grants for visiting scholars: Ph.D. candidates, post-doctoral researchers and senior researchers.  Periods of stay can be short (several weeks) or prolonged (up to a year). Extensions of the period of visits are sometimes granted.

During their stay at the Institute visiting scholars have access to the Institute’s library, slide collection and the archaeological collections that are of interest for their work.
