John Metcalfe Visiting Research Grant
The University of New South Wales, School of Information Systems,
Technology and Management (SISTM) is offering support for visiting
researchers to participate and contribute to collaborative research with
academic staff and postgraduate research candidates in the Information
Management Program of SISTM.
The visiting scholar program is centred on the following areas:
Informetrics (including bibliometrics & scientometrics), web-related
communications, information retrieval issues and specialized information
Ideally, Visiting Researchers would participate in and contribute to
current and proposed studies in the above fields or more broadly in
information management related topics; they will also work collaboratively
on publications related to completed studies or projects.
The Visiting Research Program is for periods between 2
to 6 months duration.
This opportunity would be suited to those looking for appropriate
sabbatical leave or study leave placement. The financial support offered
is accommodation in a fully furnished apartment close to the campus, and
on campus, an office with attendant academic infrastructure support.
Honorariums may be offered for public or academic lectures given by the
Visitor, as well as for presentations to university workshops or seminars.
Applicants should have research experience that falls within the general
field of information science / studies and its various sub-disciplines.
Applications from prospective Visiting Researchers should indicate
research experience in the relevant areas above and willingness to
participate in collaborative research. Applicants should send (via email
or snail mail) a current curriculum vita with information relating to
their academic record, publications and other details of experience and
skills. Two referees should be nominated together with appropriate contact
information for them.
Expressions of interest in the Visiting Research program should be
