The program is designed to help a junior faculty member to spend a semester at a research-intensive institution. The objective of the program is to help high-potential junior faculty members with limited exposure to world-class research at institutions in their countries. Such may be the case, for example, for some junior faculty members working in certain countries in Eastern Europe, Asia, South America and Africa. The program is intended to help junior faculty gain deeper insights into the craft of research, and thus accelerate their mastery in conducting research. In addition, the program is likely to result in collaborative relationships between the junior faculty member and the faculty/doctoral students at host institutions. Host institutions will be expected to provide help with administrative aspects (e.g., some office/work space, access to library, information regarding apartments, documentation for visa if needed).
