We frequently have visiting scholars come to work at the Center for Limnology. These visitors are not reimbursed or paid in any way by any of UW-Madison projects or funding, but are paying for their visit on their own. An example is a researcher spending their sabbatical in Madison.
If you are hosting a visiting scholar, be sure to plan WELL in advance for their visit. If they are only here a short time, it is unproductive if they are waiting for authorizations and access that could have been set-up prior to their arrival.
If your scholar will need access to the UW-Madison campus network services, library resources and other campus services, we will need to set up a receive a “zero-dollar” honorary appointment. If you set up a zero-dollar appointment, please note that this employee cannot and will not be eligible for a paid position without prior approval.
To request an Honorary Fellow appointment, email Jake Vander Zanden and cc Alyssa with your request and a brief description of what the scholar will be doing for us. When/if Jake approves, Alyssa will process the appointment. Please be ready to provide the following for your scholar:
- Full name
- Mailing Address
- Date of birth
- Phone Number
- Current CV
- Email address
