General information

In order to foster international cooperation in research and teaching, as well as to raise the academic profile of the Faculty of Economics and Sociology at the University of Lodz, each year it selects a number of distinguished academics who wish to spend a minimum of three months at the Faculty and engage in scholarly work. The idea underlying the EKSOC Visiting Fellowship Programme is to build on strategic areas within the Faculty, i.e. enhancing its educational offer, strengthening academic networks, and achieving excellence in research.

The EKSOC Fellowship Programme supports the research and teaching of visiting fellows at the Faculty. Visiting fellows are those who visit for a temporary period consisting of a minimum of three months. They are considered guests of the Faculty. During these months visiting fellows are expected to conduct 60 hours of teaching relating to their research interests and launch research activities in collaboration with scholars and PhD students from the Faculty.

Visiting fellows are invited to plan their stays during the regular academic year. Fall term appointments run from the 1st of October to the end of January. Spring appointments begin in mid-February and end in mid-June. Visiting fellows are expected to be in residence a minimum of three months during the term.
