Information for Visiting Academics

The School of Architecture is happy to host Visiting Research Academics if their research activities link up with the current research interests in the School.

Please visit our main research page to learn more about our research groups and research interests.

We generally expect Visiting Research Academics to stay for more than a month, most typically for a semester or a year. While at Oxford Brookes, Visiting Research Academics will have access to a desk, telephone, computer (with email and internet facilities) and our library.

In return, we require Visiting Research Academics to pay a bench fee of £4,000 per annum on a pro rata basis.

While at Oxford Brookes University, Visiting Research Academics will be expected to maintain an active relationship with the School and its activities, such as participation in seminars, lectures and conferences. We also require an acknowledgement of their association with the School in any publications or presentation that they produce arising from their research during their period of appointment. Visiting Research Academics are asked to provide the School with an off-print of any published research undertaken while affiliated to the School and, where possible, are asked to collaborate with members of the School in developing on-going and future research projects.

If you are interested to visit the School, please send your contact details, CV and a brief proposal outlining the reasons for your visit and your research plans while at Oxford Brookes University to Dr Marcel Vellinga, the School’s Research Lead.

Please note that the School can only accept a limited number of Visiting Academics at any time. Decisions on Visiting Academic requests will be taken in January and September.
