Visiting researchers at the Graduate School

The Graduate School invites one to two visiting researchers for one to two months to the School every semester. The visiting researchers are at the doctoral candidates' disposal as contact persons, give lectures in their current research areas or direct topical workshops.

Usually, the visiting researchers are coming from international universities and are awarded a research scholarship of Freie Universität Berlin. At FSGS, they may apply for funds for the execution of their events, get administrative support from the School's management and may use a workplace.

Applicable are the basic terms and conditions for guest invitations of Freie Universität Berlin. If you are interested, please contact Dr. Anja Hallacker.
