Visiting the Higgs Centre

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

Our Visiting Researcher scheme is open to applications throughout the year. Submissions should take place at least two months before the prospective visit. We invite applications for visitors to come to the Higgs Centre for the purpose of fostering or continuing collaboration, and particularly encourage applications from PhD students and early career researchers. Funding for accommodation is available. We have limited funds for travel, which we target towards early career researchers.

Visits should be in conjunction with a local host, who should complete the visitor form, including a host statement detailing the potential benefit of the visit to the Higgs Centre and its members and to the visitor. If appropriate, an email address for a referee for the visitor may be included (e.g. a PhD supervisor or senior collaborator). The visitor scheme is a competitive one and final funding decisions will be taken by the Higgs Management Committee.
