Visiting Faculty Programme

The Danish Cardiovascular Academy invites declaration of interest from the Danish researchers (Associate Professor level, or higher) for the DCAcademy Visiting Faculty Programme.

The programme supports the visit of a Visiting Faculty consisting of 3-5 visiting Professors within a common area of research. The Visiting Faculty will visit 2-3 research groups in Denmark (the hosting research unit). The duration of the visit should be 1 -2 weeks. Focus for the programme should be to promote exchange of knowledge and networking between international senior scientists and Danish researchers – younger and senior.

The Visiting Faculty will visit each of the research groups for 1-2 days, where they provide master classes for the younger researchers, and discuss projects with the senior researchers. The visit concludes with a joint symposium between the hosting research unit and the Visiting Faculty. The DCAcademy will support travel, accommodation, and symposium related expenses. Applications can be in any field within cardiovascular research.

While the programme is advertised at the professorial level, we recognize that different countries and universities use different titles to denote seniority. We will accept applications for Visiting Faculties consisting of senior academics (senior lecturer/Associate Professor or above).

The declaration of interest should be sent to the DCAcademy Director, Prof. Christian Aalkjær The Academy will perform a pre-screening based on the purpose and criteria listed in the application guide. The call is open-ended and without application deadline.
