Visiting Scientist Program

As part of the GRAS SAF project we have an ongoing visiting scientist programme. This programme allows scientists from institutions that are not SAF members to participate in the activities of the SAF, either as Visiting Scientists or as Associate Scientists, through appropriate projects in their home institutes. If you're interested in joining us for e.g. 1-6 months to work on one of our research projects feel free to contact us.
