What we expect:
We expect visiting researchers to be active and visible in our research program. Guests are in regular contact with their hosts, participate in one or more research groups, present their work, and co-organize seminars, workshops or other events.
The host is responsible for embedding the guest in the research community and to guide them in finding their way around. For this reason, it is important that you only invite people that you want to work with. Many countries stimulate their researchers to go abroad with visiting scholarships. Since you are expected to invest time and energy in them we recommend that you be somewhat selective.
NB. We cannot assist guest researchers with housing.
There are two options for visiting researchers to join ASCA.
The first option is the easy one of joining ASCA as affiliated researcher. The guest can simply come to Amsterdam and join the program. Beware: we cannot assist this person with their visa application, and they will not get the visa without support from the university. So this option is only open to people who do not need a visa.
We can provide affiliated guests with a letter of invitation, they can buy a library card (40 euros) and we can arrange free access to secured WIFI eduroam. We can add their name to the list of affiliated researchers on the ASCA website. And they can be added to the mailing list and kept informed of all our activities, to which they are welcome to join.
What we offer affiliated researchers:
The second option is the more complicated and restricted one of joining ASCA as a guest researcher: This option is only open to researchers who have received independent funding to do a postdoc project at ASCA and/or to researchers who will make a considerable contribution to the ASCA program, for example by closely working together with an ASCA member on the organization of a seminar/reading group or by presenting their work and contributing in other ways to one or more research groups.
