Visiting Fellows

Every year, a selected number of doctoral and post-doctoral researchers, who are employed at another academic institution, are appointed as Visiting Fellows at Católica Global School of Law to carry out their research for a defined period of time.

The length of the appointment ranges from one month to one year, with the possibility of renewal. Fellows are granted access to the school’s facilities, network and events.

Eligibility requirements

Applicants must hold a doctoral degree or be enrolled in a doctoral programme and have recognized research experience in their field. They must also be proficient in English.

Since research stays are unpaid, applicants must have a source of financial support from outside Católica Global School of Law.

Duties while at Católica Global School of Law

As an output of their research stay at Católica, Visiting Fellows are expected to publish at least one paper in the CGSL Working Paper series, preferably in co-authorship with a resident faculty member of the school. Teaching or supervision opportunities may also be available during the stay.

If the Fellow is not affiliated to another research centre, he or she may be invited to join the Católica Research Centre for the Future of Law.


Applications must be sent to and must include the following documents:

  • Curriculum Vitae
  • Purpose and dates of the stay 
  • Summary of the research agenda (max. 500 words)

Applications are assessed on a rolling basis. Candidates should expect an answer within three to four weeks after submitting the application.
