2.3 Sabbatical and Self-Supported Visitors

Applicants with their own support may apply directly to the center with the application below. The Director will handle these applications directly. Due to limited space, computing and other resources, these applications do require approval.

2.4 Other Visitors:

Applicants interested in other center programs (education, outreach, research projects, or other interests) are encouraged to contact the Director to discuss their plans. Some positions are set aside for faculty from non-research institutions who wish to spend sabbatical time at DIMACS. DIMACS is also interested in visitors under GOALI (Grant Opportunities for Academic Liasion with Industry), and other programs that further its mission.

3. Support for Visitors:

Visitor positions, for both academic and industrial researchers, may be either long-term (several months to a year) or short-term (a few days or weeks). The center has limited funds to support visitors with subsistence and travel funds. Visitor positions are intended for people with full or partial salary support from outside sources, since DIMACS support for these positions is usually limited.

4. Procedures:

The host and visitor should use the Visitor Applicant Procedures in applying.

Visitor approvals are handled by the Special Focus committees for those programs (2.1); by the visitors committee for those seeking support (2.2), and by the Director with advice as needed for others (2.3 and 2.4). Decisions usually take about 2 to 4 weeks, occasionally longer.
