  • 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

Application and approval process

Prospective senior visiting scholars and visiting scholars should review the research profiles of our academic staff, and then contact the most appropriate academic staff member with the proposed dates for the visit, a research outlline/proposal and CV, enquiring whether the academic staff member is willing to be their host. Please note that the host is the primary person responsible for the visitor during the visit. 

If the prospective visitor is successful at finding an academic host, the prospective visitor must then contact the Director's Office at director@crim.cam.ac.uk with the proposed dates, the research outline/proposal, CV and confirmation of the academic host's agreement in writing (usually an email).

The Director's Office will then forward the application and related paperwork to the Institute Director for review and decision whether to approve. The Director's Office will then notify the applicant whether their request was successful, and begin practical preparations for the visit.

Important

Prospective visitors are not accepted unless they have an academic host within the Institute.

Working space is very limited and the majority of visitors are accommodated within our Radzinowicz Library. The library is closed for the month of August each year (August dates are available on the library website). If the academic host is able to offer working space from within their space allocation, this should be confirmed to the Director's Office, as it is a factor to be considered during our approval process.

The Institute does not provide funding for visiting scholars.
