The purpose of Matariki Fellows is to increase the number of research contacts and strengthen international cooperation. Funding is available for research stays of up to six months at one of the MNU partner universities. The scheme is open to researchers and teachers in all research areas at Uppsala University. Applicants can request funds for travel expenses and for substitute teachers in cases where work cannot be allocated to existing staff. Compensation for housing expenses can also be requested. The employee receives a salary as usual from the department but is on leave. Insurance is included in the stay. Further information on the application process can be obtained from the MNU Co-ordinator, Anna Ledin.
Details of previous Matariki Fellows can be found below, and further information on the most recent Fellow, Johan Brosché, can be found in the news story on the MNU website.
