Guest researchers

Every year, the Faculty offers space to visiting researchers in two different programmes. The "Researchers in Residence" programme is designed for senior researchers, who are invited by the sections to stay a couple of months in Amsterdam, to work on a research project. The "Returning PhD Students" programme is intended for foreign junior researchers who have secured their research master's degree at the VU and who are invited by their supervisor to return to Amsterdam for one semester of intensive doctoral supervision.

Applications for the program “Returning PhD” take place upon recommendation of the accompanying professor.
