The Stephenson Distinguished Visitor Programme, supported by the James D. Stephenson Fund, provides support to allow renowned scientists to visit DESY, to work and to collaborate with DESY scientists in the field of photon science research.

The objective of the programme is to strengthen this research, especially the work of young academics at the light sources PETRA III and FLASH through innovative, advanced projects. Initiating and expanding new connections with scientists at home and abroad is a long term aim.

Application
The James D. Stephenson Fund provides funds for up to four scientists per year, depending on the available funds and proposed research programmes. A proposal, prepared by the DESY host scientist together with the guest scientist, shall be submitted to the DESY Photon Science Research Director (via Director's Office) (proposal max. 2 pages (pdf file): participating scientists, affiliation, short CV incl. 5 important publications, reasons for the collaboration, programme for the stay; proposal template).

Deadline
1 October 2017 (for a visit in 2018)

Selection of guest scientists
The selection committee consists of leading and senior scientists from external institutions as well as from DESY.

Duration of stay
The stay at DESY in Hamburg (Germany) is expected to last up to 4 weeks. The financing of the stay will be similar to that of the Humboldt Foundation and the visitors will receive the payments directly.

DESY host
The inviting DESY scientists will organize the stay and provide an efficient cooperation with the guest scientist and the involvement of other DESY groups and on-site. DESY can help to find an accommodation in Hamburg.

After the stay at DESY
All research results achieved during the stay at DESY should be published. Appropriate reference should be made to the funding provided by the James D. Stephenson Fund, e.g. in the acknowledgement "One of the authors (N.N.) was supported by the 'Stephenson Distinguished Visitor Programme' at DESY in Hamburg (Germany)."
