Incoming fellowships for Visiting Professors

The project involves ca. 16 visiting professors invited annually to GUT and SIFFM PAS (in total 98). The candidates can be submitted by faculty members and approved by the coordinators council of the project.

According to formal requirements imposed by the Polish Ministry of Higher Education and Science a proposed visiting professor must have an adequate scientific activity (at least 5 publications listed in the ISI Master Journal List published during the last three years before invitation).

An invited visiting professor will receive an incoming fellowship of PLN 9000 (approx. EUR 2300) from the project to cover the costs of travel and accommodation in Gdansk. The project office can assist in arranging flight/travel for a person to Gdansk and book a hotel or other place of residence.

It is expected that visiting professors will offer to carry out a series of 15 hours of lectures (usually 3 hours a day for 5 days, but other variants are also acceptable) and hold personal scientific advice for attending students. These lectures are primarily intended for PhD Students of the consortium members, although other Gdansk University of Technology PhD students, BA and MA students as well as employees (including non-GUT) are also allowed to attend these lectures.
