The Visiting Scholar Programme supports visits to the School of Psychology by distinguished scholars.
The Visiting Scholar program is not intended for guest speakers and researchers intending only a short stay. Other funds are available through Massey University to support such visits. Information about these funds can be found on the Massey University Procedures website ( http://policyguide.massey.ac.nz/) under the heading of Procedures - Research - Academic and Distinguished Visitors to Massey University.
The School normally appoints one Visiting Scholar annually. The average period of a visit is usually 6-12 weeks.
Visiting Scholars are invited to contribute to research activities and academic information exchange in the School and are welcome to contribute some teaching in their areas of expertise.
A Visiting Scholar is expected to present at least one academic seminar on specialist topic(s) of current interest to the Scholar. These seminars are presented to staff and graduate students of the school, but are widely advertised on campus and open to the general academic and professional community.
During the period of the visit, the Scholar should undertake research and explore opportunities for ongoing collaborative research with members of the School of Psychology.
The Visiting Scholar would usually be based at one of the School campuses, at Auckland (Albany campus), Palmerston North (Turitea campus) or Wellington. However, a Visiting Scholar may contribute to activities at one or more of the other campuses beside that at which he or she is based.
