Visiting Scholars Program


The Institute of Slavic, East European, and Eurasian Studies (ISEEES) welcomes visiting scholar applications from active academic researchers and university faculty members who wish to conduct research relevant to faculty associated with the Institute and who can participate in and contribute to the university's Slavic, East European, and Eurasian studies community. Applicants are expected to hold advanced academic degrees, i.e., a Ph.D. or foreign equivalent earned more than five years ago. The Institute also welcomes applications from individuals with experience in government service, business or professional fields who are likely to benefit from interactions with research scholars. Current Ph.D. students may apply for affiliation as a visiting student researcher.

ISEEES visiting scholars are independent researchers while in residence at Berkeley. Visiting scholars enjoy full access to Berkeley libraries and electronic resources and receive an e-mail account for use during their stay. However, please note that the Institute cannot provide office space to its visiting scholars.

Visiting scholars may be invited to present or otherwise take part in seminars or conferences organized by the Institute, and they are welcome to attend all announced scholarly events on campus. Classroom participation as an auditor is subject to the approval of individual faculty members. All visiting scholars are asked to submit a final report on the outcome of their research affiliation, and ISEEES appreciates copies of publications or papers completed during a visitor's affiliation with the Institute.
