Visiting PhD student

SuHRF offers funding through a Visiting PhD Student Program to enhance academic exchange and strengthen the research environment at Campus Gotland. The Visiting PhD Student Program provides PhD students and researchers at Campus Gotland the opportunity to invite international and domestic PhD students to spend a period as visiting PhD student at one of the departments on Campus Gotland.

Applications are submitted by PhD students or researchers working at Campus Gotland, on behalf of the visiting PhD student, and must be approved by the applicant’s home institution. Applications contributing to the development of the research environment at Campus Gotland, including collaborations across academic disciplines are prioritised.

Funding covers travel and accommodation, which is organised and booked by SuHRF. Office space is provided by SuHRF on Campus Gotland during the entire stay. The length of the visit is between two and six weeks.

During the stay, the visiting PhD student is expected to work in a field that is relevant to sustainable heritage, preferably pursuing a multi-disciplinary approach of interest to the wider research community on Campus Gotland. The visit might also aim at developing long-term collaborations between PhD students and researchers within Campus Gotland and the visiting PhD student’s department. The visiting PhD student is expected to partake in relevant seminar activities and, if possible, teaching.

There are two application deadlines per year: March 31 and September 30.
