With faculty and visitors from across the world, the Institute’s vibrant Visitor’s Programme reflects its global approach to population ageing. It offers the opportunity for both academics and those from the corporate and policy / practice world to spend a period of independent self-directed study and research, with the support of specifically assigned researchers at the OIA as mentors. The main purpose of the Visitor’s Programme is to enhance the academic work (research) of the OIA as well as the visitor’s by mutual exchange and learning.
We invite various categories of academic applications - Visiting Professors; Research Fellows; Post-Docs and Students - as well as interested candidates from community organisations and the corporate world. With the Institute’s focus on global population ageing, we particularly welcome applications from abroad. Applications are received all year round and its acceptance is dependent on the relevance to our key research themes. All visitors should in the first instance contact Jaco Hoffman or Debbie Alder (email@example.com) to request an application form. It could also be downloaded at http://www.ageing.ox.ac.uk/fellowships.
Visits may range from a few days to one academic year. Admission to the Visitor’s Programme is competitive and limited to no more than ten visitors during each term.
Fees and funding:
Visitors are required to pay a non-negotiable bench- fee for each academic term of stay to cover resource costs. This fee does not include costs related to travel, accommodation and other personal living expenses. The majority of visitors are self-funded through personal bursaries, support from funding bodies or from corporate or policy bodies
The OIA is furthermore committed to annually sponsor two emerging researchers from developing world countries through designated bursaries. The Leslie Kirkley and the James Martin Fellowships offer the payment of the bench-fee for one term but not travel, accommodation and other personal expenses.

We look forward to welcoming you to Oxford!
