Visiting Scholar Policy
The RRI has an active visiting scholar policy, and we have a tradition of hosting foreign scholars during their study leaves and sabbaticals. Although we are unable to provide financial support, we do provide access to university library and other resources, and shared office space. We are especially interested to host visitors whose research interests overlap strongly with the mission of RRI. We are particularly appropriate hosts for those with regional economic development and regional economic systems modeling interests. However, because time and administrative resources are limited, and because we typically receive many more requests than we can fill each year, we must be selective. Those whose interests are more closely related to microeconomics, finance, business, or management, for example, would be better off visiting other campus units.
In evaluating applicants, we also consider the following, listed in no particular order:
- Good English skills. We are most interested in visitors who can interact meaningfully with our staff and students. Without good oral and written English communication skills, the benefits to the RRI do not offset our time and energy investments.
- Self-starters. We prefer those who will benefit from their study leave without requiring substantial guidance. We are a small unit and, therefore, cannot devote large blocks of time to supervising visiting scholars. While we value collaborations with our visitors, they should also have a research plan of their own upon arrival and be prepared to work independently.
- An interest in participating in RRI activities, including seminars, workshops, social gatherings.
If you are interested in an appointment as an RRI Visiting Scholar, please submit a written expression of interest describing your reasons for choosing the Institute as your host, a statement of your study leave goals and objectives, and a CV. Prior to formal acceptance, evidence of English language ability and financial means of support will also be required.
