WIN Visiting Scholars Program

We are pleased to announce the WIN Visiting Scholars Program (WIN-VSP) designed to bring leading members of the Canadian and international nanotechnology research community to the University of Waterloo.

The guest will be nominated and hosted by a WIN member to visit UW for one month, to conduct exploratory research and to scope future research collaborations. The invited researcher will also give guest lectures and a seminar presentation as part of the WIN Seminar Series.

The visit will funded up to $1500 by WIN (or $50 per day), which is to be equally matched by the host WIN member’s research account to cover accommodation and travel expenses. The guest will be provided shared office space at the QNC Flex Office (QNC 3609).

WIN will also provide administrative assistance for immigration documents and local accommodation bookings.

Please forward nominations to WIN Executive Director Sushanta Mitra (copying Lisa Pokrajac) at least 4 months prior to projected visit time, completing the application form with all pertinent information.

Thank you, and we look forward to receiving your nominations!
