  • Affiliates are researchers in areas of theoretical physics covered by the Higgs Centre who intend to make several short visits to the Centre to establish or continue collaborations with one or more local Higgs researchers.
  • An affiliate will typically be from the UK or elsewhere in Europe.
  • We encourage applications from early career researchers (post-doctoral researchers) with recent ties to the Higgs Centre, who wish to preserve their collaborative links with the Higgs community.
  • Please note that there is a cap on the amount of funding available per financial year as an Affiliate(£1.5k total). Administrative support to help arrange a visit may be available for any visitors in a Higgs Centre research area, even if no further financial support is required.
  • The selection process is competitive. We particularly welcome applications by researchers from underrepresented groups and backgrounds.
  • Affiliate membership lasts two years.

To propose an Affiliate, please fill out the Affiliate application form. We require only basic information about the visits, with shorts statements (about one paragraph each, guideline maximum 400 words) about what the visit will achieve and a justification for financial support where this is requested. Applications can be submitted at any time, and will be considered at the next meeting of the Management Committee after the application is received.
