Our Visitors

The Higgs Centre for Theoretical Physics has resources to support visitors from other institutions, for example, to collaborate with local Centre members or to give graduate lectures. Frequent visitors may be nominated as Higgs Centre Affiliate or Associate Members.

Our Visiting Researcher scheme is now open to applications throughout the year. We therefore invite applications for visitors to come to the Higgs Centre for between 2 and 12 weeks for the purpose of fostering or continuing collaboration. Accommodation and travel expenses will be covered. We particularly encourage applications from PhD students and early stage researchers. Visits may be co-ordinated with visits of existing associates or affiliates.

Visits should be in conjunction with a local host, who should complete the form below, including a host statement detailing the potential benefit of the visit and the strength of the visitor. If appropriate, an email address for a referee for the visitor may be included (e.g. a PhD supervisor or senior collaborator).

Application form
