Academics and professionals having their own sources of financial support sometimes come to Berkeley as visiting scholars. They generally pursue their own research program and participate in seminars and informal discussions. Potential applicants are urged to communicate with the Chair as early as possible since the Department has to apply to the Vice Chancellor for Research to obtain approval for each visiting scholar.
At present, the Department has no funds for supporting new postdoctoral scholars. Individuals with funding of their own can sometimes be accommodated. If interested, please write to the Chair.
