Visiting Fellowships in Computer Science, Liverpool (U.K.)

The Department of Computer Science, University of Liverpool, invites 
applications for up to 5 Visiting Fellowships.

 Visiting fellows will visit the Department for one month between February 
2014 and July 2014 (arrangements can be flexible).

 The aim of the scheme is to attract internationally recognized researchers 

- promote Liverpool's international profile as a centre of scholarly 

- advance nascent research collaborations with Liverpool

- enrich the research environment for Liverpool postgraduates and early 
career researchers

- lay groundwork for sustained research linkages between Liverpool and 
institutions outside the UK.

 A typical visiting fellow does not yet have very close research 
collaborations with members of the Department, but intends to use the 
visit to develop such collaborations. Applications that are 
interdisciplinary in nature and/or involve members from multiple research 
groups and directions in the Department are particularly encouraged.

 Funding of up to 3,000 is available for every visiting fellow. This can 
be used to cover travel and subsistence expenses (in line with standard 
University policies). Costs will not be a payment which can be deemed to 
be recompense for time or services.

 The fellowships were given to the Department only recently: if you are 
interested, please respond asap but before 14 December.
