Future Scholars: From 1 week to 3 months
Are you an expert on vaccinology or regulations applied to vaccinology?
Whatever your view on the subject, from scientific or industrial fields (immunology, infectiology, epidemiology, industrial process or quality) to humanities and laws (public health, health policy, regulations), you will:
- make an impact by joining the LIVE consortium faculty and get the unique opportunity to meet our students,
- meet the vaccinology leaders of tomorrow, and
- share knowledge and good practices with the largest vaccinology science community.
The consortium offers each year guest lecturer’s funding opportunity with competitive remuneration. Travel and accommodation costs of the visiting scholar are funded by the LIVE consortium. The LIVE course offers 3 to 8 positions / year for a maximum duration of three months to leading academics and practitioners preferentially, but not exclusively, from outside the European Union to contribute to the teaching programme. The scholar will be integrated in the department organising the LIVE Master at the hosting university.
Scholars can be asked :
- to lecture students on a topic for a time slot to be agreed upon and corresponding to the scholar's field of expertise and availability
- to assist in the preparation, development and/or implementation of a practical seminar or case study or MOOC development organised with the LIVE students and other national students from the national Master involved in the LIVE Master at the hosting university
- to explore potential collaboration between the LIVE consortium and the home institution of the scholar.
The lecturers / scholars can apply to the LIVE consortium on their own initiative or can be invited by the LIVE consortium to do so. The application (see details in the next §) should:
- mention the academic year the scholar applies for
- include a motivation pointing out the potential contribution to research and education in scientific or humanities or industrial process related to Immunology, infectiology or vaccinology
- produce an extensive CV, stating publication records, research activities, etc.
Duration of the visit: 1 week to 3 months
The selection is organized and proceeded by the LIVE consortium on the basis of:
- elective criteria, i.e. academic performance and credentials of the candidates
- potential contribution to research and education within the LIVE framework
- origin of the home institution of the scholar, according to this order of preference: third-country, developed country from outside EU, country from inside European Union
- potential partnerships with the home institution of the scholar.
