Information for Visiting Scholars

Deadlines for application are:

September 15th for visits starting in Spring (January)

February 1st for visits starting in Fall (August)

We welcome visiting scholars to our department, subject to the limitations of our resources. Visiting scholars will need to provide their own funding and are encouraged to apply for external sources of funding to support a stay here.  We can provide access to shared computers, an e-mail account, and access to the library.

Preference will be given to scholars collaborating with UF Linguistics faculty, or scholars interested in initiating collaborative research (culminating in jointly published papers, conference presentations, and grant applications). Visiting scholars are expected to be active members of the UF academic community and to present their work at our Thursday Linguistics seminar.

We can accommodate only a limited number of visiting scholars per semester. To apply to be a visiting scholar, please send the following to the attention of the Visiting Scholars committee. Please apply only a few weeks before the deadline indicated above. We will start reviewing applications just after the deadline.

  1. A completed cover sheet: use this Word template or PDF template.
  2. A detailed two-page description of the research you plan on doing at UF.
  3. A current CV
  4. One or two sample publications of your work (in English, or with an abstract in English).

These materials should be sent by email to the chair of the UF Linguistics Visiting Scholars Committee, Dr. Kevin Tang. Please do not include any .rar or .zip files; attach only non-compressed files to your application. Thank you.
