Visiting Academic Programme

We have a vibrant Visiting Academic Programme (managed by Durham University Business School) and applications are welcomed from scholars at all stages of their careers. A list of recent visiting academics is given below.

Visiting Academics are paired with a Department Collaborator based on shared research interests. They act as a link to the Centre, the School, the University and Durham, and help visiting academics take full advantage of all the opportunities on offer.

Visiting Academics should hold a PhD or have submitted their thesis for examination. If you are interested in our visiting PhD student programme, you will find further information on the University's website.

  • Ability to fulfil research objectives as proposed
  • Make a positive contribution to our research culture
  • Contribution to research seminar programme
  • Sufficient fluency in English to be able to benefit from their time in Durham. If required a telephone interview will be arranged.
