The TSVP was launched in June 2021, with the goal of bringing leading theoretical researchers to OIST for extended visits. The first part of the TSVP was the Visiting Scholars program. Visiting Scholars are individual visitors, usually staying at OIST from 3 to 12 months. Visiting Scholars carry out independent research at OIST, and interact with one or more OIST Research Units during their stay. No teaching duties come with the position. However, Visiting Scholars are expected to give a general-audience "TSVP Talk" about their field of research within the first month of their visit (recordings of past talks can be found on the Past Events page).
All current, upcoming, and past visitors can be found on the List of Visitors.
