1. Overview

Members of the Professorate may invite faculty or other qualified individuals, who are employed or appointed at another institution or organization, to visit Stanford for an extended period in order to advance a collaborative research activity. These individuals are appointed into academic units and classified as Visiting Scholars.  The invitation must indicate the name of the faculty member hosting the visitor, and must be approved by the chair of the hosting Department, Program, Independent Laboratory or other academic unit.

Appointment as a Visiting Scholar differs from an appointment as Visiting Faculty in that the faculty classifications typically envision a role encompassing the normal scope of a faculty appointment, i.e., they may teach a course or graduate level seminar, and participate in graduate research (but not as a primary advisor).  A Visiting Scholar is typically appointed for research or scholarship only, and will normally not have any responsibilities for teaching Stanford classes or for advising Stanford students.  

2. Criteria for Appointment

The following are the minimum eligibility criteria for a Visiting Scholar designation at Stanford University: (Schools may establish more restrictive eligibility criteria.)

  •  the individual must be visiting from and affiliated with an outside institution or organization
  • the individual must have a doctoral degree or recognized expertise in his or her field; and
  • the individual must have a source of financial support from outside Stanford University; appointments as Visiting Scholars do not include any Stanford salary.  (Schools and departments may establish minimum levels for the outside financial support of Visiting Scholars.) Visiting Scholars are not University employees and the title may not be used for personnel or payroll purposes. Visiting Scholars do not receive regular compensation from the University.

The classification of Visiting Scholar is appropriate for faculty from other academic institutions who are invited to Stanford on an unpaid basis during a period of sabbatical at their home institution.  In addition, this classification is appropriate for the appointment of qualified personnel from industry, government or other organizations, including retirees, who wish to visit Stanford on an unpaid basis, including those whose visit is under the auspices of an Industrial Affiliate Program or other collaborative agreement.

The Visiting Scholar classification is not intended for individuals who might otherwise be considered trainees. This classification is not used to bring matriculating students from other academic institutions, nor should it be used for individuals who should be appointed as Postdoctoral Scholars. For policies and appointment procedures for Visiting Student Researchers and for  Postdoctoral Scholars see the Related Items section below.

3. Duration of Appointment

Visiting Scholar appointments are usually made for up to one year and may be renewed for a second year, although shorter appointments are possible.  An extension beyond two years must be approved by the School Dean’s office and will be granted only for extraordinary and compelling reasons.

A Stanford identification card will not be issued for a Visiting Scholar whose appointment is shorter than three months (see the Related Items section below for Administrative Guide 2.4.3).

4. Appointment Procedures

The procedures described here address university requirements.  Individual schools or programs may have their own appointment process, which may involve review and approval by a dean’s office.

The inviting department, program or Independent Laboratory is responsible for ensuring that a Visiting Scholar candidate meets the criteria above and for issuing the letter of invitation. The appointment letter must:

identify the faculty member issuing the invitation, and the academic organization in which the Visiting Scholar will be housed

specify the term of the Visiting Scholar designation (that is, the dates of residency at Stanford University)

confirm that no salary or other financial compensation, including insurance or other health and welfare benefits, will be provided by Stanford University in conjunction with the appointment

provide that the Visiting Scholar must satisfy all regulatory requirements and comply with Stanford policies that apply to his or her activities while at Stanford, and

incorporate by reference the terms of this policy

An appointment form template for visiting scholars as well as faculty guidelines for hosting visiting scholars can be found in the Related Items section below. Contact Faculty Affairs staff in each school for a template for the Appointment Letter for unpaid visitors, encompassing all of the points above.

The appointment of a Visiting Scholar must be appropriately recorded in Stanford’s PeopleSoft non-paid personnel database.

5. Responsibilities of Host Faculty, Departments, Programs and Independent Labs

Hosting academic units should ensure that the appointment of a Visiting Scholar is justified on the basis of benefit to Stanford.

The hosting academic unit is responsible for providing space for the Visiting Scholar, and for assuring that the individual can participate as intended without undue interference with the other academic responsibilities of the host laboratory or organization. 

In addition, the department is responsible for assuring that the Visiting Scholar:

receives all required university training (e.g., health and safety or other mandatory training)

understands that proprietary work for his or her home organization may not be carried out in Stanford facilities during the visit. 

signs the appropriate Patent and Copyright Agreement for Personnel at Stanford. (Note: If the visitor already has an intellectual property agreement with his or her employer, the visitor should sign an alternative version of the agreement, called the SU-18A.  If the visitor has not already assigned intellectual property to an employer, he or she signs the regular Stanford agreement (SU-18).  Both versions are filed electronically 

complies with all university policies and external requirements related to the performance of work at Stanford.

A. Management of Potential Conflicts of Interest

The Visiting Scholar’s home organization may wish to make an unrestricted gift to Stanford in order to defray the costs of resources and facilities to the department that is supporting the Visiting Scholar. Such a gift needs to be made to the faculty host’s department or as a payment to an Industrial Affiliates Program. It may not be made directly to the faculty host and it must comply with all relevant gift policies, including those pertaining to conflict of interest.

The faculty host must disclose in the university’s Outside Professional Activities Certification System (OPACS) any personal financial relationship that the faculty host has with the Visiting Scholar’s home organization. Further, if that home organization is an entity with a commercial interest in the research the Visiting Scholar is carrying out at Stanford, the faculty host must disclose this potential conflict of interest in OPACS by adding the individual’s name as a participant in the research with a conflict of interest. The faculty host must assure that there is no “pipelining” of intellectual property to the visitor’s home organization, nor any early, exclusive access to research results.   The faculty host’s laboratory may not act as an “R&D arm” of the visitor’s home organization.

6. Intellectual Property Agreements

As described above, all Visiting Scholars must sign a Stanford Patent and Copyright Agreement.  An alternative to Stanford’s regular agreement has been created in the event that the Visiting Scholar has a prior obligation to another employer regarding the disclosure and assignment of intellectual property. This agreement, the SU-18A , is only applicable to unpaid visitors; it is not applicable to individuals who are appointed as faculty or staff members, graduate students or postdoctoral scholars at Stanford University.

7. Visa Requests

Upon receipt of an approved Visa Certificate Request Application Form, the Office of Foreign Scholar Services at Bechtel International Center will prepare a Stanford visa certificate (DS-2019 Form).  Departments must pick up the approved Stanford visa certificate and assure that foreign visitors receive their DS-2019 well before departure from their home country, and that they understand that they must use the DS-2019 to apply for a J-1 visa at a U.S. Consulate.

8. Privileges

Visiting Scholar status is a privilege, not a right, and an individual holds this status at the pleasure of Stanford University.  The status may be revoked at any time (even during the term of the designated status) by the University in its discretion, without the necessity of a reason.  Similarly, there is no right to a renewal of the status at the end of the term. 

Visiting Scholars are not employees or students of the University, and therefore are not entitled to Stanford compensation or other benefits available to regular staff, faculty or students (including health insurance).  The Visiting Scholar title may not be used for personnel or payroll purposes.  Departments wishing to make a special payment to a Visiting Scholar for participation in a seminar presentation or similar contribution may do so by means of a non-salary honoraria. In certain cases, a program may agree to provide a non-salary stipend for living expenses or supplemental research expenses for the Visiting Scholar.  (See Administrative Guide 5.3.6, Section 7. In the rare circumstance where a Visiting Scholar is asked to make a short-term contribution to a research effort for which salary should be paid, payment of appropriate consulting fees should be arranged.

A Visiting Scholar Identification Card will be issued to Visiting Scholars who are in residence for a minimum of three months.  Cards may be obtained by visiting the Stanford Card Office presenting the appropriate signed invitation for appointment as a Visiting Scholar for a fixed period of at least three months, and showing a valid government-issued picture ID.  More details about the Visiting Scholar Card are found in Administrative Guide Memo 2.4.3 and at the Stanford Card Office web site.

Visiting Scholars are eligible to use the following Stanford facilities and services:

  • Libraries:  Holders of Visiting Scholar Cards will have access to certain Stanford University libraries in accordance with regulations and policies governing the use of its libraries. The possession of a Visiting Scholar Card does not assure access to any particular library.  Visiting Scholars without ID cards may apply for library privileges at the Privileges Desk in Green Library.  Privileges will be granted in accordance with library policy.
  • Department of Athletics, Physical Education and Recreation (DAPER) facilities and events:  Holders of Visiting Scholar Cards have access to certain facilities and events specified by DAPER, subject to payments of established amounts, if any, for tickets and use fees.  
  • auditing University lecture courses without fee, subject to permission of the instructor  (Classes that require individual instruction and participation, such as laboratory and language courses, studio and performance courses, or creative writing courses are not authorized for auditing.)
  • campus parking privileges for a fee (arranged through Parking & Transportation Services)
  • access to off-campus housing information

Requests for Exceptions and Additional Guidance

Requests for exceptions to any of the requirements of this policy must be reviewed and approved by the school dean’s office and by the Dean of Research.  For additional guidance regarding this policy, please contact the Dean of Research office .

Visiting Research Scholars

Visiting scholars at duke  .

Duke University values collaborations with external researchers and understands that these collaborations are vital to advancing education and research. Visiting research scholars can provide valuable insights and contribute significantly to our academic community. However, given the diverse and global nature of our institution, there are measures in place to safeguard our research activities while maintaining an open and inclusive environment on campus.   

In order to continue to foster these relationships and collaborations, and ensure appropriate disclosure to our sponsors, the University developed a Guidance on Visiting Research Scholars at Duke   that provides additional definitions, general processes, and important information regarding the requirements to register Visiting Research Scholars via the Visiting Scholar REDCap Registry for all Duke schools and departments.    

A list of Department/ School/ Unit Designees for REDCap can be found here . A Fillable PDF Form can also be completed in advance to help ensure all necessary information is collected before entering the Visiting Research Scholar into the REDCap Database.   

Important Issues to Consider with Visitors  

There may be instances where additional measures should be taken for visitors. Registered international visiting research scholars are screened by Duke University's Office of Export Controls through an automatic notification process. If a visitor (or their institution) appears on a United States Government (USG) restricted party list, that would impact the University’s ability to host the visitor or collaborate with their home institution. Please note, timely registration allows the central offices to work with the sponsor to determine if any additional requirements or restrictions are required prior to the visitor’s arrival. Additional information for foreign national visitors is available from the Office of Export Controls .  

Federal sponsors may also have specific disclosure requirements. For example, the NIH requires both “Other support” and “Post award information” disclosure for Visiting Scholars in Labs funded by an external entity. Additionally, NSF requires “Current & Pending” disclosure for Visiting Scholars whose research activities are not intended for use on the project/proposal being proposed. Visiting Scholars who are supported by an external entity, and whose research activities are intended for use on the project/proposal being proposed require “Facilities, Equipment & Other Resources” disclosure.   

It is important to notify your grants and contracts team of any visiting scholars you are hosting AND their external support (if applicable) during grant applications and RRPRs so they can help ensure appropriate sponsor disclosures are made.   

Some federal sponsors may also require a higher level of screening for individuals working on federally-funded projects, even if uncompensated. Access to specific facilities may need to be restricted or documented approval may be required to allow visitors access.  

If you have any questions or would like further guidance related to this topic, please feel free to reach out to our office. If you don’t see a designee for your area, please contact [email protected] for more information.

Resources for Visiting Scholars

A Visiting Scholar is a scholar from outside the University appointed to teach or do research for a limited period of time. These short-term appointments are designed to provide visiting scholars with access to our intellectual resources, while also enriching the intellectual life of SAS and Penn. Appointments can be made for up to one year and can be renewed annually. The major criterion for being selected as a visiting scholar is that a potential visiting scholar must have a member of the standing faculty serve as a liaison and should be established  in something typically long-term at their origin institution or in a clearly temporary position leading to transition in a year or two to something more advanced. Anyone interested in being a visiting scholar should reach out directly to the member of the standing faculty that is most suited to their interests.

Program Description

The Institute for the Study of the Ancient World (ISAW) is a center for advanced scholarly research and graduate education, which aims to encourage particularly the study of the economic, religious, political and cultural connections between ancient civilizations. In an effort to embrace a truly inclusive geographical scope while maintaining continuity and coherence, the Institute focuses on the shared and overlapping periods in the development of cultures and civilizations around the Mediterranean basin, and across central Asia to the Pacific Ocean. The approaches of anthropology, archaeology, geography, geology, history, economics, sociology, art history, digital humanities, and the history of science and technology are as integral to the enterprise as the study of texts, philosophy, and the analysis of artifacts.

ISAW anticipates appointing visiting scholars in several different categories for the 2024-25 academic year. Applicants in all categories should be individuals of scholarly distinction or promise in any relevant field of ancient studies who will benefit from the stimulation of working in an environment with colleagues in other disciplines. Scholars with a history of interdisciplinary exchange and scholars whose academic interests include parts of the ancient Old World that are often underrepresented in traditional academic departments, including Africa, Central Asia, South Asia, and Southeast Asia, are especially welcome and encouraged to apply.

Visiting scholars at ISAW have access to the Institute's own library, as well as to a wide range of other libraries at NYU, The Metropolitan Museum of Art (located a block away), and other institutions in New York City, including Columbia University and the New York Public Library. They are provided with their own carrel workspace.

Visiting scholars in all categories are expected to undertake research projects connected with ISAW's core academic mission, to be in residence at the Institute during the period for which they are appointed, to take part in the intellectual life of the community, to participate in ISAW seminars, to give a public lecture on their research at ISAW, and to play an active role in mentoring graduate students.

ISAW is prepared to host visiting scholars in three categories:

(1) Two-Year Visiting Assistant Professors:  ISAW anticipates appointing up to two two-year Visiting Assistant Professors with a start-date of September 1, 2024.

Visiting Assistant Professorships are reserved for early-career scholars who received their PhDs on or after May 1, 2021. Current doctoral students in their final year of dissertation work are also welcome to apply, but please note that official conferral of the PhD must take place prior to the start-date of the position (September 1, 2024).

A research account is provided to defray the cost of travel to conferences and other research expenses.

In compliance with NYC's Pay Transparency Act, the annual base salary range for this position is $74,605-$94,605. New York University considers factors such as (but not limited to) scope and responsibilities of the position, candidate's work experience, education/training, key skills, internal peer equity, as well as market and organizational considerations when extending an offer.

(2) One-Year Visiting Research Scholars:  ISAW anticipates appointing up to three funded one-year Visiting Research Scholars for the 2024-25 academic year (September 1, 2024-August 31, 2025). Holders of these positions are typically appointed as professional research staff.

One-Year Visiting Research Scholar positions are available to scholars of all post-PhD career stages, from recently minted PhDs to retired academics. Current doctoral students in their final year of dissertation work are also welcome to apply, but please note that official conferral of the PhD must take place prior to the start-date of the position (September 1, 2024).

In compliance with NYC's Pay Transparency Act, the annual base salary range for this position is $74,605-$94,605 . New York University considers factors such as (but not limited to) scope and responsibilities of the position, candidate's work experience, education/training, key skills, internal peer equity, as well as market and organizational considerations when extending an offer.

(3) Externally-Funded Visiting Research Scholars:  ISAW is prepared to consider applications from postdoctoral scholars with their own funding from another source for appointments to be held during the 2024-25 academic year. Appointments can be for one semester (fall 2024 or spring 2025) or for the entire 2024-25 academic year.

Externally Funded Visiting Research Scholar positions are available to scholars of all post-PhD career stages, from recently minted PhDs to retired academics.  Applicants should have their doctorates in hand by the beginning of their period of appointment at ISAW.

Holders of these positions do not receive any financial support from ISAW.

Application Instructions

The application must be completed in Interfolio and should include a cover letter, CV (including publication list), a research proposal, three letters of recommendation, and a writing sample (either a published article or dissertation chapter). Applicants must also complete a researcher profile form and an EEO form in Interfolio. Letters of recommendation from ISAW faculty and staff are not permitted.

Hinton lab grows, American Physiological Society award adds Clintoria Williams as Visiting Scholar

Clintoria Williams with two students

Clintoria Williams , associate professor in the Department of Neuroscience, Cell Biology, and Physiology at Wright State University, has received the John F. Perkins, Jr. Research Career Enhancement Award from the American Physiological Society. This will enable her to join Vanderbilt as a visiting scholar in the Department of Molecular Physiology and Biophysics for four months to collaborate more closely with Antentor Hinton Jr. , assistant professor in the department.

While at Vanderbilt, Williams will work with Hinton to identify novel treatment targets for chronic kidney disease, a disease most frequently caused by hypertension and diabetes. She will also explore the antihypertensive effects in two established CKD models.

“I am deeply honored to receive the John F. Perkins, Jr. Research Career Enhancement Award from the American Physiological Society. This award not only acknowledges Dr. Hinton’s and my past contributions to the scientific field but also opens a thrilling new chapter in our research careers,” Williams said. “This collaboration presents a unique opportunity to expand the boundaries of our understanding of the mechanisms driving chronic kidney disease. Dr. Hinton and I are poised to explore uncharted territories, driven by a shared commitment to excellence and innovation. This collaboration signifies a momentous step forward, promising to yield impactful insights and forge new paths in our quest for knowledge.”

In December 2023, Williams and Hinton published a review article in the journal Aging Cell that expands on the understanding of latent transforming growth factor beta binding protein 4’s role in age-related organ disease. Williams is a co-author on three preprint research articles from the Hinton lab, including “ Strategies for Inducing and Validating Zinc Deficiency and Zinc Repletion .” During her time as a visiting scholar, she will assist with other publications.

Williams’ research examines hypertension, a major risk factor in CKD progression, which leads to end-stage kidney failure. Uncontrolled blood pressure is present in almost 90 percent of patients with CKD despite the availability of several types of drugs that target hypertension. To combat this, Williams’ lab has worked to identify cellular and molecular mechanisms that drive hypertensive kidney damage. “Notably, her work underscores the urgency for research into new approaches to lower blood pressure, slow CKD progression, and improve patient well-being,” Hinton said.

Antentor Hinton Jr.

Williams is the president of Black in Physiology Inc. , an organization dedicated to supporting Black professionals in physiological sciences and that advocates for greater diversity and inclusiveness in this scientific discipline. She also holds the position of president at the Dayton branch of the American Heart Association. Her involvement with the AHA in 2017 included participating in their Research Leaders Academy. She has been honored as a fellow by the organization and has been an active member of the Council on the Kidney in Cardiovascular Disease.

“As an incredible mentor and outstanding scientist, she fosters learning and growth in her laboratory, inspiring impactful scientific contributions,” Hinton said.
