The program for "Special Visiting Researcher" aims to attract a senior foreign researcher, internationally recognized as leadership in priority areas of Science Without Borders program, to conduct projects with Brazilian research groups and visit Brazil for up to three months each year over two to three years.
Prof. Piotr Koszmider is a researcher and full professor at the Institute of Mathematics of the Polish Academy of Sciences. He has been a professor at the University of São Paulo for nine years, during which period he established the collaboration with many of the participants of our project.
We expect that the three months he will spend in our department every year during the project will help us to strengthen our research group and deepen this collaboration.
The program also provides scholarships for Brazilian Ph.D. students to go for a research stage with the foreign researcher and for postdocs to develop a project at the host institution.
