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. We therefore invite applications for visitors to come to the Higgs Centre for the purpose of fostering or continuing collaboration. Funding for accommodation and travel expenses is available. We particularly encourage applications from PhD students and early stage researchers. Visits may be co-ordinated with visits of existing Associates or Affiliates.

Visits (also for Affiliates and Associates) 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 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).
