Visiting Scholars, Officers of Research, and Staff Officers of Research
The Chazen Visiting Scholar Program at Columbia Business School provides international scholars, doctoral candidates, faculty members, and business practitioners with the opportunity to take advantage of Columbia's resources to further their research and scholarship. A visiting appointment is a non-stipendiary position lasting a period of between three months and one year, which grants the scholar library access and borrowing privileges, a temporary Columbia University ID and email address, and the option to audit up to two open courses per semester.
Visitors must be sponsored by a faculty member at the Business School, who will serve as the scholar's academic adviser and provide guidance on the progress of the visitor's research. The faculty adviser should specialize in the same area as the prospective visitor.
Effective 2014, in compliance with University policies, visitors may be granted one of three designations by the University. The designation is dependent on whether the visitor and faculty sponsor intend to collaborate on research that may/will result in a co-authored paper and/or publication.
Visitors who collaborate on research must be designated as:
- 'Officer of Research' (if they already hold a PhD) or
- 'Staff Officer of Research' (if they do not have a Phd)
Visitors who only conduct independent research must be designated 'Visiting Scholars'
