Visiting Researcher Programme 2024-2025

The Faculty of Law, University of Copenhagen, hereby announces that doctoral students, postdoctoral researchers and full professors may apply for a research and/or teaching related visit at the Faculty of durations spanning from at least four weeks to six months.

Applications may be submitted two times each year relating to research/teaching visits. The application form should be used and the required information must be included. Applications submitted after the application deadline will be assessed at the next coming application round. Applications based on incomplete forms and/or missing required information will be rejected.  

Deadlines for application in 2024 - 2025 are:

  • 1 September 2024 (visits beginning no earlier than 1 December 2024)
  • 1 March 2025 (visits beginning no earlier than 1 September 2025)

The Visiting Researcher Programme is intended to give researchers from other research institutions the opportunity to engage in scholarly interaction with the Faculty’s research centres, PhD Programme and/or teaching activities. The visiting researcher programme is aimed at researchers interested in actively contributing to the Faculty’s research environments.

Visiting researchers are, to some extent, expected to engage in the seminars and projects which are of interest to the faculty/research centres besides time spent on their personal research on topics.

As a part of the assessment of applications, the Faculty will give priority to research areas in which the Faculty and the research centres have particular interest. Applicants are required to describe how their research projects are related to one or more research centres or researchers at the Faculty. Prior contact with or invitation from a relevant Head of a Research Centre or academia at the Faculty is recommended.

Applicants are required to document health insurance and adequate financial support for the duration of their stay. The Faculty does not offer remuneration during a research or teaching related visit, but researchers accepted to the visiting researcher programme may apply for coverage of minor travel costs etc.

Please include the letter of invitation from your contact person at the Faculty of Law.

Visiting researchers are provided with (shared) office facilities, PC-workstation, access to the Faculty’s library and to other research infrastructure. Visiting researchers will also benefit from participation in a wide range of seminars and from interaction with a large group of fellow doctoral students and researchers.

Visiting Researchers are not provided with housing or housing services and must provide and fund housing themselves.

Applicants will receive a reply approximately one month after the relevant deadline of applications.

Questions regarding the Visiting Researcher Programme may be directed to Associate Dean of Research Astrid Kjeldgaard-Pedersen
