VISITORS TO THE INSTITUTE OF CRIMINOLOGY

EVERY VISITOR, AT ALL LEVELS, MUST BE SPONSORED BY A FULL TIME INSTITUTE TEACHING OFFICER WHO WILL TAKE PRIMARY RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE RELATIONSHIP WITH THE VISITOR.

There are three categories of visitors at the Institute of Criminology:

Visiting Fellows Visiting Senior Fellows Visiting Scholars

Visiting Fellows

Generally Visiting Fellows are senior, distinguished academics who wish to spend a period of several months to a year working on a particular research project, often in collaboration with academic staff of the Institute. These are official appointments and must therefore be approved by the Institute's Committee of Management.

Recommendations must be made through one member of Institute academic staff. Applications should include a covering letter with an outline of the proposed research and proposed dates, a C.V., and if applicable a separate research proposal. Applications should be made at least six months before the intended visit, so that the approval procedure may be completed, and space (which is limited) allocated.

Criteria for appointment:

  • High academic standing both in teaching and research (or in the case of practitioners, able to demonstrate the applications of research at policy level)
  • Research interests compatible with those of the Institute
  • Planned collaboration with the members of the Institute
  • Where appropriate, the potential to make a contribution to the life of the Institute in the form of a seminar or workshop or other relevant activity
  • We receive a great number of applications and so the success or otherwise of your application may reflect the number of visitors that we have at any one time and the facilities available for the chosen period of attachment


Visiting Scholars

We have two categories of visiting scholars, senior, and junior.

Visiting Senior Scholars are senior academics (Professors and Readers/Full Professors and Associate Professors) who wish to be attached to the Institute of Criminology for a short period of time.

Criteria for appointment:

  • Demonstratable achievements in studies
  • Showing potential in relevant research area
  • Research interests compatible with those of the Institute
  • Where appropriate, the potential to make a contribution to the life of the Institute in the form of a seminar or workshop or other relevant activity
  • We receive a great number of applications and so the success or otherwise of your application may reflect the number of visitors that we have at any one time and the facilities available for the chosen period of attachment

Interested applicants should review the research interests in the Institute prior to applying. If your interests are predominantly legal you should approach the Faculty of Law.

Prospective Fellows and Scholars should, in the first instance, contact a member of academic staff to request that they sponsor the visitor. If a member of staff agrees to be the sponsor, the applicant should submit the relevant paperwork to the Director's PA, by email at director@crim.cam.ac.uk or by post to:

Assistant to the Director,
Institute of Criminology,
University of Cambridge,
