The Foundation has made an agreement with Linacre College at the University of Oxford such that the Carlsberg Foundation Visiting Fellows become Junior Research Fellows of the College and can contribute to the academic excellence of the College, irrespective of the collegial or departmental association of their supervisor. This gives them the opportunity to attend seminars and access to the facilities of the College, such as the library, choir, gym, sports and meals, the latter however at their own cost.
Applicants are encouraged to contact Professor Morten Kringelbach, University of Oxford, firstname.lastname@example.org, for assistance on identifying a suitable research group or environment for the project.
To be eligible to apply for a Carlsberg Foundation Visiting Fellowship at the University of Oxford, the applicant must hold a PhD or must have received an assessment of the PhD thesis.
Applicants with more than three years of experience since obtaining their PhD degree are not eligible. Any periods of leave will be accepted as extensions of this time limit (maternity leave, paternity leave, family care leave, illness, military service, etc.)
The Carlsberg Foundation Visiting Fellowships at the University of Oxford are only awarded to PhDs with previous strong connection to Danish research.
The application must be submitted in English.
The Carlsberg Foundation Visiting Fellowships at University of Oxford are generally tax-free in Denmark, and amount to:
DKK 350,000 per year if the grant holder is travelling alone
DKK 425,000 per year if the grant holder is travelling with children.
It is not possible to apply for funding in excess of the fixed rates.
If the project is granted, the Carlsberg Foundation offers a session with a tax expert, free of charge, to those grant holders who need professional advice on how they can expect to be taxed during their stay abroad and how to fill in their tax forms.
