Visiting Research Fellowships

Visiting Research Fellowships are being offered to PhD-holding junior and senior scholars for a period of one to twelve months. Scholars who have not received a Visiting Research Fellowship in the previous five years are especially encouraged to apply.

Visiting Fellows are expected to fully contribute to the exciting research life of the Collegio, by being in residence full-time at the Collegio, working on their research project(s), interacting scientifically with the Collegio's scholars, and attending seminars and lectures. The fellowship does not carry any teaching or administrative responsibilities. However, if a Visiting Fellow is interested in teaching a mini course or a seminar course, this can be arranged by mutual agreement.

Recipients are offered the possibility of carrying out research on a subject of their choosing within the social sciences, in an environment that enables them to interact on a daily basis with faculty, research staff, and students.

The amount of each fellowship depends on the candidate's curriculum and on the available budget. The Collegio covers the cost of an economy round-trip ticket from the place of residence of the Visiting Fellow, and provides logistical assistance in finding accommodation in Torino for the period of stay.

Application Procedure

Interested candidates must submit their applications online using the link below. Applications should include a CV and a brief (1-2 page) research proposal indicating the requested period of stay at the Collegio. As a general rule, applications received will be evaluated twice a year: after September 15 (for visits starting no earlier than the following January) and after February 15 (for visits starting no earlier than the following September). A faster evaluation might be granted if the need arises.
