UNU-MERIT has openings for visiting researchers and professors in Innovation, Governance and Development. These are available at all levels after completion of a PhD, and for periods of between one and six months in 2013 and 2014. Proven prior research experience in a relevant theme (as evidenced by peer-reviewed publications) is a strict requirement. The purpose of the visiting period should be to realize a concrete result, such as a research paper, a policy brief, etc. Proposals will be evaluated as and when they come in and as long as available resources permit. There is no deadline for submissions. See the links for more details.
